Over the years, we've made it a tradition to explore the fields and bring home freshly picked treasures along with delectable baked goods straight from the farm's ovens. The blueberry pie and apple cider donuts are personal favorites.

You’ll find a one-acre field with meticulously arranged pumpkin displays. The grassy field they’re set in eliminates the hassle of mud or dirt, making the experience enjoyable for all.

Situated conveniently close to the corn maze, the farm market and farm animals the pumpkin patch gets you ready for a day of family fun.
