As Leeds Farm (located in not-too-far-away Ostrander) opens up for fall, there are two events coming up for Central Ohio families.

First is the Leeds Farm Autism Harvest Festival, from 8 to 10 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 22. It's an annual festival that's free for families who have children with autism. Pick pumpkins and enjoy other activities like hayrides and seeing the farm animals.

On Sept. 30, families with military members can receive 50 percent off the price of admission and spend the day exploring during the Leeds Farm Military Families Salute.

Regular admission for Leeds Farm, which opens to the public at 10 a.m. on Sept. 22, is $10 for children 3-18 and $8 for adults 19-54 (those over 55 get in free). The farm is open Saturdays and Sundays until Oct. 28. Learn more at leedsfarm.com.
