My husband Cameron and I have lived in Spanish Springs for 13 years, and in August of 2009 had the opportunity to move to and manage the family farm. We felt that it would be a great opportunity for our five kids, to be able to experience the work and fun of living on a farm.
After we moved, I started thinking of some ideas and opportunities to build a business on this beautiful property in the middle of the Spanish Springs valley. We are just off Pyramid, and close to schools and stores, but have a unique farm setting that I thought could be a benefit to the community. I had the idea of creating a Pumpkin Patch as a fun attraction for the fall. There are not many pumpkin patches in our area, and since I like to garden and put on big events, I thought it would be the perfect way to create something great for others, while working together as a family. Our kids have all helped with planting, weeding, feeding animals, setting up, painting, etc. to help make it possible. It has been a lot of work growing the pumpkins and preparing all the activities, but it's been worth it! We feel blessed to live here and hope that your visit to the farm will be thoroughly enjoyable!
