The Pumpkins Olympics is this Saturday, Nov 9, 11:00am – 4:00pm. We have started to set up the Pumpkin 30 games, including Giant Checkers, the new Pumpkin Derby race track and the Survivor-inspired Pumpkin Lift challenge. (Games open 11-3:00)
Smokin Lamas and Tree Buckets will be flinging pumpkins up to 2300ft with their amazing machines.
About 3:00, The Giant Drop will feature a 818 pound beauty (grown and donated by Ken Redcay), dropped (by Null’s Towing) onto a car (donated by Fling’s Towing.) Congratulations to Seth, Isaac and Jodi for their closest weight guesses in the contest.
The day ends with the famous Pumpkin Avalanche & Smash Fest. It’s smashin’ good fun for kids & adults of all ages.
With only 8 more days of October remaining, it’s time venture to the pumpkin farm. Beautiful pumpkins are waiting for your selection. The Pick-Your-Own and the large Stand will remain open through Nov 1. After Nov 1, we will begin the transition to a small Stand (only) and prepare for the Pumpkin Olympics festival (Nov 9.)
The Pumpkin Stand & PYO are open 9:00am-6:30pm (Mon-Sat) and Sunday 12-5pm. Both “Quick stop” and “Family Adventure” options are available. Either select from a large variety of great looking pumpkins at the Stand, or or pick your perfect pumpkin in the field… then play Pumpkin Putt-Putt and the other games with your friends/family.
There is a beautiful October weekend on tap and it’s Pumpkin Time! We have the Stand fully stocked with a huge variety of pumpkin sizes, shapes and colors; plus a wide array of gourds, mini pumpkins, straw bales (large & mini), corn stalks, corn bunches, and large beautiful mums.
If you prefer a grander fun, family Fall adventure, you are invited into the pumpkin patch to search for your own pumpkin perfection. After filling your wagon, take a few extra moments for photos in the field with your finds. Saunter back to the Stand area and enjoy some family time at the playground & small house and/or play the various pumpkin games, including Pumpkin Putt-Putt (bowl a pumpkin through the 9-hole mini golf course), Ring Toss and Skee-Pumpkin.
The Giant Pumpkin has arrived at the farm. How big is it this year? Guess! Stop by the stand a submit your guesses, $1 each. The Winner will receive a Family Pass to the Pumpkin Olympics on November 9, 11am – 4pm, when the Giant will be dropped on a car!
A big “Thank You” to Ken Redcay who grew the Giant Pumpkin and donated it to the Pumpkin Olympics, a community charity event. It’s a smashin’ good time for the whole family.
I’m thankful for pumpkins, my family, and great workers this season. I find joy in picking pumpkins and gourds… discovering what beauty is beneath the next leaf. I give thanks to my Heavenly Father for his creativity, and marvel in his goodness and grace. what are YOU thankful for on this beautiful day?
The pumpkin stand is open Monday-Saturday, 9:00am-6:30pm and Sunday noon – 5:00pm. Bring your family on a pumpkiny adventure and spend some quality time playing and searching among over 50 varieties of pumpkins for the perfect sizes, shapes and colors for your home.
We have planted over 50 varieties of seeds which yielded a large selection of sizes and colors of pumpkins, squash and gourds. Sunflowers, straw bales, corn shocks, mums, and colored popcorn corn bunches are also for sale. We are a family-friendly, small farm that delivers a “Big farm” experience, but without the crowds and high prices,
Friday is the LAST DAY of the season. The rain has wiped out the last hope of extending the season. There are a very limited number of pre-picked quarts. The PYO field is closed… everything has been picked.
The Strawberry Stand will be open Friday @ 8am. PYO fields are closed for the season, so only pre-picked will be available. This is possibly the last day… we will let you know if there are berries available next week.
