About Us:


We are a clean working pumpkin farm specializing in agriculture education and agri-tourism since 1994. Since we are a farm, we celebrate harvest and do not display those things associated with Halloween, such as witches, ghosts, gruesome figures and haunted hay rides that may frighten young children. Our 100 year old working barn has been transformed into a gift shop. We offer large and small pumpkins, hay bales, gourds, Indian corn, corn stalks, and apples. We have ADA RESTROOM FACILITIES WITH HANDICAPPED ACCESS, CHANGING TABLE AND COMFORT STATION.

Our farm is available for birthday or private parties, corporate team building, company picnics, bus tour groups and weddings.

Our topic for Ag in THE CLASSROOM FIELD TRIPS for 2011 is "A is for Apples". We will learn that an apple a day will keep the doctor away and the dentist too. We will learn about the growing, storing, and yummy apple foods.
We offer, a hay ride, feeding our llamas, Ag lesson, pie pumpkin, hay maze and other activities, snack of popcorn and cider, apple craft and information materials. Please allow at least 1 1/2 - 2 hours for the tour. Cost in $7.00 per person. Call Mary for reservations.

Our fall activities also include our "FUN FARM PASS", which includes our 5 acre corn maze, hay fort, hay ride, duck races, hay maze, feeding the animals, childrens play area, horse shoes, hill billy golf, and many children's games. This year our corn maze is the 150th Anniversary of the Civil War. Our pathways will become streets and our passport questions are facts about the Civil War whether you are a beginner or an expert. Cost is $11.00 per person. Special rates for groups 20+ $9.00.Special rates for Church groups. See $1 off coupon on or local newspapers. Come early and stay the day.

For those families with young children, that may not want to visit the corn maze, we offer a "BARN YARD PASS", which includes all the above except the maze for $6.00 per person.
