Pumpkin Patches




The Sunshine Farm

(directions on website)

Sept, daily 8am – 8pm; Oct, daily 9am – 6pm

During September and October, come on out to pick your own apples and press your own cider on our old-fashioned hand-crank press.  You have to taste it to believe it.

We will also have a U-Pick pumpkin patch and 2011 will be the inaugural year for our corn maze! The Corn Maze is designed as a scavenger hunt and will be most enjoyed by pre-school and school-age children, but everyone will enjoy the views from the Corn Palace in the center!

Camp Korey

Oct 1 – 30, Sat & Sun 10am – 4pm

Have fun and give back at the annual Fall Festival held at Camp Korey. Choose a pumpkin in the lush pumpkin patch, go on a hayride, wind your way through the corn maze and make some s’mores! They also have special pumpkin pancake breakfasts, harvest lunches and sugar pie pumpkins.

Oct 1 – 31, 9am – 6pm

One of the last fruits of Summer waits in the field under changing skies to bring tradition and memories to those who pick and gather them for their own personal harvest. Pick your pumpkins from the field in which they came and become more connected to the earth. There are also some apples left on the trees that are ready for picking. Pumpkin carving – a celebration of the historical tradition of carving vegetables into lanterns. Prizes will be handed out for first second and third place winners. On the weekends, hot cider and tasty baked treats will fuel your internal fire, keeping you comforted against the atmospheric wilds of nature. Don’t miss the seven acre corn maze created by the same aliens who have made those mysterious patterns found in farmers’ fields around the world.

GIANT pumpkins, tiny pumpkins and sizes in between – we got ‘em in weird shapes and strange colors, even pumpkins with bumps! Each year we plant a plethora of gourds, pumpkins and squashes.  You can pick them yourself or choose one from the barn. Pumpkins are priced by size (starting at about $1).  There are samples across the farm, so you know the price of your pumpkin before you buy. Check out the other fun activities for kids and adults – hayride, corn maze, pumpkin cannon and more.
