Bonnie and her husband, Jon Bloomfield, always wanted a place where families could come and have a great experience. They purchased the land in April, and named it SeaBloom Farm in honor of both family names.
“It’s been our dream for a long time,” said Seabrooke. “We wanted a place where families could come out and have a good time on the farm.”
The farm covers 34 acres of land, and Seabrooke hopes they will be able to hold other family oriented events throughout the year.
“In the winter we are planning on having Christmas trees,” said Seabrooke. “We are trying to create a family experience that you can look back on and cherish.”
There will be live music, caroling, stocking-making stations and hot chocolate, she said. In the spring, she said, the farm may have an antique festival.
Family is something Seabrooke and her husband take seriously, and she said it is the main reason they decided to purchase a farm.
“We want this place to be a family tradition,” she said.
Seabrooke and Bloomfield have three children, Dean (15), Dana (13) and Thomas (8). Bloomfield’s sister, Amy and her husband, Jeff Hawkins, have an active part in all the festivities at the farm.
This October, kids can partake in the special “Just for Kids” trick-or-treat corn maze where good time goblins and whimsical witches greet trick-or-treaters from station to station in the maze, she said. Not to fear though, there will not be any scary spooks or ghastly ghosts here. Only nice, candy giving spirits are allowed, Seabrooke explained.
Cost of admission to the maze is $7 for children. However, those who decide to wear their Halloween costumes get an extra $1 off ticket price per kid. Parents get in free.
After they’ve made your way out of the maze, guests are invited to stop by and create a scarecrow, paint mini pumpkins, or visit the pumpkin patch and take home a pumpkin, or two, Seabrooke said. Little red wagons are provided to haul pumpkins throughout the patch and back to guests’ cars.
Snacks and drinks will be for sale, but families are welcome to pack a picnic, bring blankets and make a day of it at the farm.
SeaBloom Farm will be open on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and on Sundays from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
