Honeysuckle Hill Farm features pumpkin patch, corn maze and more

SPRINGFIELD, Tenn. -

What started as a hobby farm 10 years ago has turned into a full time job for Jeff Alsup.

His 200-acre farm in Robertson County features a 10-acre corn maze, zip lines and pumpkin blasters. Making it clear as to why Honeysuckle Hill Farm is more than just a pumpkin patch.

"There [are] lots of things to do.  We can pan for gem stones, we can zip line [and] we can see the hillbilly pig race where Squilly Nelson and Leanne Pork Rines fight it out for an Oreo cookie. So again it's just more, it's about the experience it's all about the experience," Alsup told Nashville's News 2.

Alsup and his family live on the agricultural farm that specializes in educating children about all areas of farm life, but he's thrown in a slew of fun activities.

One of the more popular activities, this time of the year, is the pumpkin patch.

Guests load up in a cotton wagon filled with hay and take a trip across the farm to pick their own pumpkins out of the four acre patch.  Everyone gets a free pumpkin with admission.

"So Grandma, Grandpa, little Johnny, everybody gets a pumpkin out of this pumpkin patch.  There [are] probably 30,000 pumpkins here today and we see about 800 school kids a day so 800 pumpkins leave this patch every single day," Alsup explained. 

The pumpkin patch sees close to 70,000 visitors each year.

Honeysuckle Hill Farm is located on Martins Chapel Church Road in Springfield about 30 miles north of Nashville.
