It's finally October, which means it's time for all things fall in Arkansas! Grab the kiddos and head to a nearby farm, where you can pick a pumpkin, play in the hay and pet some farm animals! Each farm is different and offers different activities, so be sure to browse our list to find the one that's right for you.

If you and the kiddos go out to play the day away, share your pictures with us by using the hashtag #beon11! We can't wait to see your pics!
