Have you ever heard of a self-driven hayride? Probably not—because Cox Farms just invented it. In an effort to safely keep some of the local autumn traditions alive, Cox Farms opted to skip its traditional Fall Festival and haunted house this year in favor of a few creative, socially distanced alternatives—including their self-driven hayride.

Guests who come to the farm for the hayride will remain in their cars and follow a route similar to that traditionally taken by the farm’s tractor. You’ll get to experience all the sights and sounds of the farm, perhaps even spotting a few barnyard critters, and enjoying seasonal displays and sound effects. Before you hit the trail, you may want to grab some goodies at the drive-through market, which offers everything from apple cider to kettle corn! After the hayride, you’re invited to quickly jump out of the car to snap a selfie in front of the fall signs or use a portable restroom.
