  1. Since my family lives in York County, we always take a trip down to Cotton Hills Farm in Lowrys, SC. It’s a 120 yr old working farm. They have farm tours & activities every Saturday in October. And, of course, they have a pumpkin patch. My kids love it — it’s the highlight of our Fall! http://www.cottonhillsfarm.com
