Fall on the Farm 
Blooms & Berries Farm
 Loveland Ohio

At Fun Time Had By All

 We visited Blooms & Berries Fall on the Farm during the Sunflower festival weekend (Sept 23,24). There's a large field of sunflowers that were all in full bloom and it was absolutely breathtaking.
 This place has so much to see and so many beautiful flowers!
 Each year the 7 acre (yes I said 7 acres!) corn maze changes to a different theme. This year's theme was The Migration Mystery. There's also a smaller kid's maze for the little ones. We had a lot of fun solving the mystery and finding all the pieces of the puzzle. The maze is easy to get around in too nice wide walkways and almost no uneven pathways.

We enjoyed wandering around and enjoying the giant slide, plinko game, corn box, duck races, and of course the 7 acre corn maze! Be sure to check out the adorable cow train your little ones will simply love it! We got such a laugh taking turns getting our photo with the outhouse built to look like you're sitting on the throne! Lol! My favorite has to be the animals I've always been a big animal lover. Have you ever seen a rabbit living with chickens? Well I did at Blooms & Berries! I was even able to snap a photo of it that you can see above. Along with chickens and rabbits there's lambs, donkeys, turkeys, pheasants, and my fav the baby goats. 

 After our hayride we decided to go into the barn to cool off and enjoy some fresh cold cider and fresh popcorn. We wondered around the barn browsing through the fresh honey, homemade fudge, caramel apples, and peanut butter, apples, apple butter, mums, and handmade crafts and decorations. The mums and other Fall flowers were all so full and beautifully bright colored almost breathtaking. There's so much to see inside the full farmer's market Blooms & Berries offers.

 We decided to take home a gallon of their delicious apple cider, some apples, caramel apples, and pumpkins. They have so many different varieties of pumpkins and Fall squash and gourds. We even found this football shaped squash called a Hubbard squash that my Mom hadn't seen since she was a little girl visiting her Grandma. It brought back a wonderful memory for her so we decided to take one home. Now she can save seed from it and grow them in her own garden next year. 

We'll definitely be returning to Blooms & Berries next year and making it a part of our Fall family tradition.

Blooms & Berries!

 Fall on the Farm offers a fun-packed day for the entire family at Blooms & Berries Farm Market in Loveland, Ohio. Activities include a 30-minute hayride around the farm and through the woods that stops in the pumpkin patch, a 7-acre corn maze that features a who-done-it game called "The Great Migration Mystery," a children's play area, the bucking cow train, farm animals and more.
Fall on the Farm is a great way to spend a beautiful autumn weekend with your family, making memories that will last a lifetime. When you pull up to our 61-acre farm, the first thing you notice is our big, beautiful barn. If you look closely, you'll notice that the truss under the front porch is made from reclaimed barn wood that is over 150 years old. This speaks to the tradition and heritage that is at the heart of our farm. The front of our barn is decorated with beautiful flowers, pumpkins, etc. making for a beautiful backdrop for family pictures.

Speaking of pictures, if you visit during the first week or two of the season, our 2-acre sunflower field should be in bloom (please call ahead of time to see if we are in peak bloom). Your family will love the walking path through the middle of the sunflowers.

Love The New 
Splenda Zero Liquid Sweetener!
 First off let me just say this is the first liquid sweetener I've tried and I wish I would of been introduced to these sooner! Crowdtap sent me a sample of the Splenda Zero Liquid Sweetener to test out and review and let me just say its awesome! It comes in a little squeeze tube so its incredibly portable! You can put it in your pocket, desk at work, purse, backpack, whatever you got it fits into. Its really easy to use you just squeeze what you need into your drink. Best of all its liquid so there's no need to stir your drink which is great because spoons aren't always available when I'm on the go.
I've been trying to shed a few pounds this year so I've been cutting back on calories and sugar from my diet. The Splenda is zero calorie and tastes just like sugar without any strong bitter aftertaste. I use it in smoothies, hot & iced tea, coffee, and any other drink I want to sweeten up. And since its portable I'm not stuck using sugar or other sweeteners when I'm out. I just pull out my little Splenda liquid and give it a squeeze! 

I received this sample from Crowdtap. #sponsored #review #Crowdtap

Squishy Mats!!
 These mats are so soft and squishy just like their name. They are thick and great for babies who are starting to crawl or toddlers that love to play on the floor. They're also great for pets especially older pets that need more comfort when they're laying on the floor. 

They come in a variety of sizes to fit your needs. I was given the 3' x 3' size which was perfect for both my smaller dogs.  These mats also fold up and have a carrying handle so you can easily store your mat or take it with you when you travel. These mats are easy to clean in case you have an oopsie and need to clean it up. They're machine washable and can be spot cleaned as well. I love the non-slip backing as well so they mat doesn't slide around on carpet, tile, wood, or any other flooring surfaces. I have a younger dog and an older dog and I don't want them getting hurt from a mat sliding out from under them. 

 Here are some of the great features Squishy Mats have to offer:
  • 3' x 3' mat offers 9 square ft of play area
  • cozy micro flannel minky top
  • memory foam pad
  • foldable & portable
  • non-slip bottom
  • secure carry handle
  • superbly designed & built to last

 Right now Squishy Mats is offering  20% off all their online orders. Squishy Mats wants to make sure all their customers are 100% satisfied so they offer hassle free returns and exchanges if their products not right or you decide its not for you. I prefer to buy from companies that treat their customers with care instead of only caring about making money.
This would make a great gift for a baby shower, anyone with small children, or a pet owner. Head on over to:

Great for babies or your furbaby!

I received this sample for my honest review.
