Win A Family Pass at Fruit Ridge Hayrides! (Plus, a coupon just for you!)

The coolest stop on the Kent Harvest Trails is offering a free family pass to be given away to one of the readers of Eat Local, West Michigan!

Now through October 30, Fruit Ridge Hayrides has a TON of stuff going on.

Here’s the scoop:

Good ol’ fashion fun is what this fall season is all about at our 130 year old fruit farm. Huge draft horses pull wagons full of enchanted guests through the woods, pumpkin patch and orchard. Feel free to hop off at the orchard and pick delicious crisp apples or the perfect ripe orange pumpkin for your jack-o-lantern. Don’t worry, the next wagon will be by soon to pick you up and shuttle you back to the barns for a refreshing cup of apple cider, homemade donuts, and more fun.
