Rebranded Amber Brooke Farms Showcases Fall Fun
Same family, new name.
Formerly known as Atwood Farms in Eustis, the new and improved Amber Brooke Farms is impressing locals with their new chic look, general store and fall fun on the farm.
“Atwood Family Farm is pleased to announce our rebranding that brings together its two-family farms, Atwood Family Farm and Red, White & Blues Farm, under one new name – Amber Brooke Farms,” their press release states.
This new name was inspired by owners Michael and Brooke Hill and Ryan and Alison Amber Atwood, taking a combination of the wives’ names.
“What better way to honor our wives than to name the business after them,” Ryan and Michael says. “We’ve decided to change the name to represent our partnership, our families, and the unique vision that we have for the future of this business. We strive to provide a place where our neighbors, family, and friends can experience all of these throughout the year, a place where you can unwind from the hurriedness of every day and enjoy the simple things in life.”
The rebranding had its first debut when the farm opened for their annual fall festival at the end of September and will run each weekend through November.
Things To Do:
Activities: The festival offers all things fun including a pumpkin patch, petting zoo on Saturdays and Sundays, corn maze, ball zone, barrel train ride, bubble barn, gemstone mining (for additional price), jump pads, playgrounds, slide hill, spider web, sand pit and the new corn pit.
General Store: They have fresh baked goods and homemade products in their general store, along with some cool Amber Brooke swag.
Photo Ops: The farm has photo stations set up all around for capturing those cute fall photos. These are great for family photos or pics of the kids. Don’t forget to get some photos at the sunflower lot!
Cafe: Enjoy lunch and baked good, apple cider, blueberry donuts and fall-flavored milkshakes and slushies at the cafe. They also serve First Magnitude craft beers and Island Grove wines for the adults. Oh, did I mention blueberry soda? It’s a must try.
U-pick Flowers: The sunflower and zinnia fields are open for u-pick for an additional cost. Photo ops in the field don’t cost anything though.
Halloween Weekend: On Oct. 29, 30 and 31, Halloween will be in full swing at the farm. This will include a costume contest, trick-or-treating, food trucks, live music and more.
