Troy Porter, owner of Porter’s Patch, says “fall family farm fun” is the best way to describe Farmtoberfest, a weekend offering through October at the farm located east of Navarino.
Activities at Porter’s Patch have changed over the years, said Porter, who took over the family business eight years ago.
“Every year we add new games and attractions,” he said. “A lot is bringing your kids out. Families come to get away from their busy lives. There’s a lot of smiling faces here.”
Porter said families enjoy the bucolic setting of farm buildings and land groomed and filled with fall accents.
“I’m very passionate about what I do,” he said.
Farmtoberfest features a pumpkin village, corn cob chuck, old-fashioned water pump races, hay bale fort building, silo chalk graffiti, pumpkin painting, corn maze and hay rides.
