Enjoying fall in the Inland Northwest
Fall is a beautiful season in the Pacific Northwest where the leaves change colors, the crisp returns to the air and football is back in season. If you’re looking for some family activities, new places to visit, or just a reason to get out of the house, look no further.
One of the best places to visit in the Inland Northwest is Green Bluff. Green Bluff is made up of more than 30 family farms, all nestled within 12 square total miles. The drive is not too far from Spokane but just enough away to enjoy the wildlife and farming communities. There are also local vendors within the community of Green Bluff. There are many little shops in the Green Bluff area, places to have lunch, drink a beer, and get fresh produce and canned goods.
Green Bluff is typically open year round, mainly dependent on what is in season. Fall is the time of year for picking bushels and bushels of apples. Many of the farms have all varieties of apple, including two of the most popular types, Fiji and Granny Smith.
But what we can’t forget is the pumpkin patches. When you first drive up to Green Bluff area, all you see is fields and fields of pumpkins. And usually little children running around trying to find that perfect pumpkin they want. All of the different farms have many different types of pumpkin that vary in size, color and shape. Each also varies on weight some pumpkins have weighed almost 300 lbs.!
There are plenty of family activities within Green Bluff as well, besides picking pumpkins. There are hay bale rides, children play area (Sweet Pea Play Area at Walters Fruit Ranch), small petting zoos (sheep), where you are able to get up close and feed the sheep. There is live music during the apple seasons.
