Williams Family Farm in Wiggins offering fall festivities
As Halloween approaches the clock is ticking on your time to partake in spooky season activities.
The Williams Family Farm is family owned and operated by Neal Williams and his wife Amber. The farm is located at 98 B and W Road in Wiggins. “We were trying to figure something to do to leave our kids, something that could help our community and leave our kids and would make it a better place.”
The section of land was willed to Neal by his father and has since transformed what was once a cattle farm into a place filled with fall festivities for agritourism. “We have a sunflower patch, pumpkin patch, kids maze, animal bar, concession stand, and general store. All your needs for a good fall day.”
The Williams family has been opening their farm up to visitors every weekend in October since 2015. You can take the family to the farm this coming Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. or Halloween day from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. “So, here we are six seasons later and it’s doing fairly well. We’ve been blessed.”
However, they have had their fair share of obstacles to squash. “Our admission booth was a folding table and pop-up tent our first year, so it’s come a long way.”
As Neal and his wife both work full time jobs, there are lots of helping hands that makes the Williams Family Farm come alive for fall. “If it wasn’t for friends and family, this would never happen.”
Every year there is a theme for the maze. This year the theme is ‘peace, love, and pumpkins.’ Admission is $10 and that last day they’ll be open is October 31st.
