We're Open!

We officially opened on Friday October 1st, but hosted a preview day for friends and family on Thursday.  We have had a great first few days, and everyone who has come has had a great time and made very positive comments! We hosted a field trip on Friday and it went really well. I am so happy when I see kids having a good time, and parents with smiles on their faces.  Thanks to all who helped us get this going!

Here is a little taste of some of the features and activities of our pumpkin patch.

Come on in!

Most of our pumpkins are ready! They vary in size and range from $1- $8.
Here's the kids picking some out for display in the barnyard and to get the bigger ones out of the "little pumpkin" section. Since the field is set up so you can pick your own off the vine, we wanted to keep the sizes in each section accurate with the pricing. The varieties we have this year are Small Sugar and Connecticut Field pumpkins. We are so excited that our patch is so full of beautiful pumpkins!
