TO OUR HAPPY PUMPKIN HARVESTERS
We began back in the fall of 2015 offering wheelbarrows to collect your harvest. We have increased our fleet to over 160 wheelbarrows!
One modestly mounded wheelbarrow holds 100 lbs. so keep that in mind when you're up in the field so you can do the math:
PICK 100 LBS. OR MORE, PAY ONLY TBDIf you harvest less than 100 lbs. the price is TBD. Please bring your own harvesting instrument. If you're cutting flowers, make sure you have a bucket of water to put them into once you reach your vehicle: they'll fare better.
A Fun Way to Spend Your Day
After a wagon ride out to the field, your children will race through the 60-acre pumpkin patch and will thrill at the sight of their perfect pumpkin! While you're out there, meander the twists and turns of the 13 acre corn maze with your kids, (always a good idea to go in with them!)
NEW THIS YEAR: 3 ACRE Sunn Hemp maze; not too high for younger kids and located close to the playground.
When they come back to the playgrounds, they will love our Giant Tunnel Crawl and NUMEROUS play areas, with plenty of room for all.
On the weekends we have a small extra charge for Farmer Tom's Barrel Train and additional jumping pillow turns beyond the one that is included with every admission . The barrel train is for 2 and up, unless mom or dad can fit in the barrel! Additional Jumping Pillow* and train are TBD*
Jumping Pillow open every day from open to 5:30. Included in every child's admission. Additional jump @ TBD
Train rides on Saturday and Sunday from 10 to 5 pm. Additional TBD charge
Most weekends with good weather you'll also be welcomed to the farm by the aroma of our Barnyard Grill, where we grill up angus burgers, our own sweet corn, and turkey legs and don't forget our Pioneer Woman Pulled Pork Sandwiches!
