I've lived in Mississippi going on 10 years now and have never been up to Hernando. I saw that Cedar Hill Farm has a pumpkin patch, corn maze, hay ride, and various other activities during the day during late September-October and I decided to take a visit, and I am so glad I did!!!The farm itself is HUGE, with so much to see and do. There's a little country store where they sell their own jarred jellies, jams, salsas, tomato sauce, pickled vegetables of different kinds, syrups, etc. They also have cute little toys and trinkets for kids, and handmade candles and soaps! Inside the country store is a snack bar that serves things like burgers, chicken tenders, nachos, hot dogs, etc. My family got the chicken tenders, cheeseburger, and nachos and all of them were really good! You sit in a small little country kitchen type area and enjoy your meal and watch TV.There is also a part of the farm where you can feed the animals for $0.25 a cup. They had goats and their kids (so cute!!), chickens, roosters, miniature horses, sheep, cows, donkeys, mules, pigs, and bunnies! All of the animals were so beautiful and friendly, I could have honestly stayed over there the whole day and been satisfied. They also had a little black cat and a tabby cat running around the farm, both very sweet and outgoing cats that would roll over for a belly rub for anyone - even the kids!When you take the hayride during the day, it takes you to a corn maze for you to walk through and then you can go down to the pumpkin patch and pick a pumpkin. However, if you aren't able to walk far, there is a huge selection of various gourds within the farm for you to choose from. I didn't have any children with me, but there were so many activities for the kids to do, including a little zip line and riding the horses.We also went to the haunted farm attraction later that night and had a blast. We did the "trail of terror" and it was pretty scary! I don't recommend you do that if you 1) don't have good night vision, 2) have weak ankles or trip easily (lots of stumps) or 3) can't run because it's very dark with lots of obstacles and we were chased twice by a guy with a chainsaw!The haunted hayride was very fun too! The tractor takes you very far out on the farm and stops at probably 7-8 scary stops.Overall, I absolutely loved this farm and would love to go back again sometime.

My favorite part was by far the animals - they were so friendly and peaceful and the people working at Cedar Hill Farms were so nice and hospitable. We really enjoyed ourselves!!!
