About Us:

We are an outdoor family! We were so excited when we purchased our farm in Sept of 2013 and later in June of 2014 were able to call it our home. A good friend suggested we grow pumpkins and here we are now. We worked cleaning up and clearing the land through the winter - lots of bonfires and hot dog roasting to reward the "crew" after a long day. This lead to picking up rocks and preparing the fields for planting in the Spring. Summer brought the actual planting process (hand-planting that is). After work, we'd head down to dig, drop, and cover. From then on, it was one challenge/excitement after another. The first signs of germination brought many cheers. Then we learned what it was really like to be a farmer... rain, pests, fungus, w-eeds. Luckily the excitement of the first blooms, the bees at wrork, and finally some orange pumpkins continue to outshine the challenges. We are so excited to share our project with our friends, family, and our community. We have a 3 acres corn "maize walk". A petting zoo with goats, cowrs, pigs, donkeys, a horse, and whatever else the girls talk us into before opening day. We have a 150 ft slide to ride on a sack. There will be face painting and many photo opportunities. You will park by a sunflow-er garden and ride the hayride dowTi to the pumpkin patch. There is a corn crib for digging and playing as well as some hay bales for climbing and jumping. You can also take your shot with our corn cannon in the back of the field. Our concession stand will feature seasonal favorites like kettle corn and caramel apples. There are activities for everyone to enjoy!
