Weekend Getaway to Pratapgarh Farms, Jhajjar, Haryana

Interesting place for a day out! We planned a weekend trip with friends and kids for a picnic specially during the winter. We drove from Noida around 8:30. We carried lot of stuff to eat for kids as it took us almost 3hours to reach Pratapgarh Farms. We reached there at 12:00.

It is wonderful experience to drive through lush green farms with wheat grown all over. The ticket was for 699 for Adults and 375 for kids above 5yrs and below 10yrs.

As soon as we entered, we saw fresh sugarcane and raddish which you can enjoy to the fullest. Kids had handful of sugarcanes and enjoyed throughout the day. Since we reached at 12:00 we were quiet hungry, so we enjoyed freshly made bajre/ makki ke roti with sarson saag or lasun ki chatni, bajre kichdi which was served all day and with unlimited serving.

Then we had garam pakoras and very nice tea. Once we were done with food we explored activities around and to our surprise there was so much to do around that your whole day you can just keep busy doing different activities.

Moreover for people who want to shake their legs, then there is a DJ all day long and will make you dance to latest numbers.

We started with camel ride, followed by bullock cart, tractor ride, then we went to farms where kids enjoyed plucking vegetables. We plucked hadful of vegetables like raddish, methi, nimbu, palak, shalgam etc… Then we moved to play sack race followed by tug of war which was great fun.

Men preferred playing volley ball so they had some good time together playing volley ball and we enjoyed Trampolines to jump on with kids. If you wish to there are badminton, cricket, table tennis and many other games to play.

We saw few people enjoying tube well where you can get wet and mud bath place also. We didn’t because it was cold.

After all this we headed for lunch which is a buffet display. Don’t expect much of quality but food is good to eat. After this we went to see Pottery and kids enjoyed putting some mehendi on their hands.

We had a good fun filled day. We were a group of five family with kids and we enjoyed to the fullest. The farm closed by 5:30 so by then we were also dead tired. Kids enjoyed village and then we all drove back sleepy.

Remember this place is fun only when you go in group and your kids should have good company. Moreover preferably drive in groups only as this place might not be safe to drive alone in the evenings. Our trip was a wonderful experience.
