If you didn't know, we sell pumpkin patch SEASON FAMILY PASSES for $65! Good for a family of up to 6 people to come for unlimited barnyard activities, hayrides, fun track, Kids Corn Maze, Barrel Train, and visiting the animals. Good during the 2014 season which is Sept 27th - November 1st.
Does NOT include large corn maze or Pony rides.




We also have two charitable projects going on! The first is the
 Pink Pumpkin Patch Foundation.
Pink Pumpkin Patch Foundation
Pink Pumpkin Patch Foundation - Porcelian Doll Pink Pumpkin
We planted "Porcelain Doll" pumpkins, as pictured above and they are beautiful! $2 of every pink pumpkin sold will be donated to the foundation for breast cancer research.
The second is "Pumpkins For Autism"  - a weekend of giving to children with Autism and their families. We will be holding a private event for Families with children who have autism. The following weekend we will be raising money for the Autism Coalition of Nevada by giving a percentage of Pumpkin Sales from Friday October 3rd and Saturday October 4th. We will also have a large pumpkin raffle where all money raised from the raffle is donated to ACON.
Please take a moment to watch this touching video clip. It addresses Autism affecting many children in Nevada, and demonstrates a way that our Governor has reached out to children with Autism as well.

We are so excited to start this season! Come

 celebrate Fall with us!!

What have we been doing?

Thought we would update the blog with some news from the farm. For you facebook users see our Facebook Page Here. For you instagramers follow us Here It's been a busy summer!

 We are wrapping up our last week of Farm Camp tomorrow. At farm camp kids get to work with the animals, weed, harvest, scoop manure, ride horses, do crafts and and play games! How fun is that. We love the last day when parents are invited and receive a vip guided tour from their kids of the farm and animals. Plus a hay ride, of course, although the camp kids don't get to to drive the hay ride...

Up to our ears in corn! This year our corn maze theme is Nevada Proud to celebrate Nevada's 150 year birthday. We have teamed with the awesome guys at Maze Play for the design of our maze. We are super excited that we also have some great maze games from Maze Play called Farm Scene Investigation and Farm Tracks! These interactive games are very engaging for kids and adults.

 As usual we are planting lots of varieties of pumpkins and have doubled our crop size. (Which means double the weeding!) Our goal is to have a great selection of pumpkins for you whether you come at the beginning or end of October. Come out and find your perfect pumpkin from our pumpkin patch.
 

 We are working on some additional barn yard activities and games, to be announced later (we don't want to jinx it). We are getting close to opening day September 27!

Looking forward to seeing everyone this year.
