About Us:

We grew our first pumpkins in 1981. We wanted our business to be family oriented. All pumpkins, squash, gourds, Indian corn and decorative items are grown and sold at the farm.

Now we have 5 boys involved; Jeff, Jason, Joseph, Justin and Josh. They all have been involved with the business though the years. Many of our relatives and friends also lend us a hand.

Our craft festival is always held the second weekend of October.

Starting in May we have planted OVER 8000 Hills of pumpkins, gourds and squash BY HAND!

One of our main attractions is our Giant Hay Bale Maze. This unique maze features displays, live animals and over 150 bales of hay at no admission charge. We are about ready to build this years maze. It is moved out every year and a new one built.

It has been a challenge this year because of the extreme drought! It is a good thing pumpkins like it dry!!
