Triple B's Offering Classic Fall Harvest Fun For The Whole Family!

Triple B Farms!
Good old family fun on the farm, that’s what Triple B’s is all about. Just about 15 miles south of Pittsburgh and just off Rte 51 … it’s a great family spot for fall harvest fun.
Best value for the kids is to get the play-all-day wrist band ($11 kids / $8 adult) that allows everybody to check out the large hillside slides, playfully named after Pittsburgh Tunnels, the Giant Liberty Tube slide and the Squirrel Hill Tunnel slide. There is a water fun section in which you can race rubber ducks down a shoot by pumping the water faster than your opponent. There is a wonderful walk-through area in which to tour hundreds of “scare crows”. For the bigger kids, they have the most amazing corn maze that we never could find our way out of … somehow I kept ending up at the entrance! There is a bounce house and inflatable obstacle course and even a section for the little ones complete with a mini-corn maze. No farm is complete without farm animals and we got a kick out of watching the pygmy goats and the “black and gold” ducklings in their habitat and learning more about the animals. My kids are 8 and 13 and they most enjoyed the inflatables and the Farm Slinger sling shot in which you sent tennis balls out to a target. We had to make time to enjoy a classic hay ride out through the beautiful apple orchards and into the pumpkin patch where we could choose our own special pumpkin! We couldn’t leave before we took a horse ride, sponsored by the Shekinah Ranch staff – though this cost an extra $4, it was one of the highlights of the day. All in all, we spent over 2 hours at the farm between the activities, the market and the hayride – we didn’t even get to check out the Big Blue Boo Barn! I would think if my kids were smaller that we would likely have stretched out the fun and made a whole afternoon of it. There is quite a bit to see and enjoy!
On the way out, we taste tested a variety of apples and ended up taking a basket of Honey Crisps for the road.
