Belvedere Plantation: A Working Farm with Seasonal...
Belvedere Plantation is a 645 acre heritage farm, built in the 1760s on the historic Rappahannock River near Fredericksburg, Virginia.
This is a working farm that has seasonal events. For spring/summer they have pick your own strawberries, or buy them freshly picked!
Fall/winter: hayrides, cornfield mazes, pet the barn yard animals, a fun barn with rope swings, pumpkin mountain slide, face painting, scarecrow workshop, pig races and pedal tractors for EVERYONE! You can take a tractor drawn hayride out to the pumpkin patch and pick your own pumpkin.
Their popular pumpkin deal is "all you can carry" for $26.99, which is a Belvedere Plantation tradition. On Friday nights, they light up the pumpkin patch and you may be lucky to spot the "Great Pumpkin" and you have to try the apple cider slushly's and caramel apples with nuts! Delicious.
Spring/summer they open up their strawberry picking fields! This is the area's largest and oldest strawberry farm! The best & freshest strawberries around!
Before leaving, please stop by the Plantation Market, which has strawberries, fresh bakery, fudge, country/home decor, pumpkins, beverages, pies, dip/food mixes - the kids will love it!
This is definitely a place that you should come and visit - I have known people to travel 3 hours away just to come to the Harvest Festival (Fall/Winter).
Admission: $2.50 (berry picking) per person & $12.00 per person (2 yrs old & under free).
So many things to do - you can even have your parties here! Check out the coupons online & other things they have during the year!
