Travel Time x U Pick Farm x McDougal Farm in Springvale,ME

In about 46 minutes drive time from our Maine stay in Kennebunkport we landed upon Springvale,ME. The McDougal family Farm runs 7 generations deep! We sought after this farm due to its variety of U Pick Items , the Corn Maze, Hayrides ( we didn’t end up to go on ) and Fresh Cider and Donuts.

We took ourselves straight to the Corn Maze which had corn stalks taller than Jason !! It was a hot sunny day and I took a little break inside the maze to tan …

The beauty of a butterfly is something we loose site of in our busy lives. I can’t even tell you the last time I took a few minutes to just observe a butterfly hanging out and flying from flower to flower.

We picked so many things ! I really could have gone bananas and picked a zillion things but had to remind myself I was boarding a plane the following afternoon. We got a few honey crisps , a peach, a few little plums , fresh perfection raspberries , a butrernut squash and a pear.

Honestly this was my first raspberry but I figured if I was picking it I gotta try it. I haven’t had a plum in like 5 years do to my food allergies but just went for it and it was yummilicious!!

In the barn where you check out I got a local honey tube and squirted some into the raspberries! There are over 40 types of apples grown at the orchard !

Can you guess Jason’s favorite ?

We are feeling fall people!!! Xx Linz
