I love Rossi Farms, they have some of the best produce around. They have a little country store where you can buy all the fresh produce you need and they have the best jams and jelly's too. The prices are terrific and the customer service is wonderful. They have many seasonal activities for the family like the pumpkin patch and ghost town in October. Kids can pick there pumpkins, have a wagon ride, play on the haystack and just have an all around fun time.
The fall harvest festival is also so much fun with live music, BBQ, fresh corn on the cob, raffles another fun time for the family. Check out Rossi Farms you wont be disappointed.

This is the best water park I have ever been to in the Pacific NW. I was so impressed. Wild Waves and Enchanted Village has something for everyone young and old.
