The entire pumpkin patch is filled with thousands of pumpkins of all sizes for carving and cooking. Be sure to bring your camera to capture a day of fun that you will always remember as you pick your own pumpkins.
Teachers and Day Care Providers are invited to bring groups to the farm to Pick Your Own Pumpkins during the week by appointment only. We offer a number of different tours designed to meet the needs and budgets of all. Parking is available for cars and busses accommodating most any size group.
