What you Will see at the pumpkin patch

What Will Students Learn?

It is important to us that each child, that steps foot on our farm, learns the benefits of farming and experiences life on the farm.  We do this through a number of activities such as: 

  • Time with the animals
  • Lessons on the life cycle of pumpkins, apples and frogs
  • Reading corner
  • And much more...    

Activities at the Pumpkin Patch

  • Farm Animals: Come pet the calves, red wattle pigs, goats and donkeys!  
  • Mazes (Corn & Corral): Enjoy a 3 acre corn maze and a corral maze that has a tunnel! Great for kids of all sizes AND ages!
  • Pumpkins: Each paying visitor to the farm will have the chance to pick out their own personal pumpkin at the end of the visit. We also have larger pumpkins available to buy at the produce stand.  
  • Apple Orchard: Take a tram ride through the apple orchard and learn how seeds make fruit; while you’re there, gather up some farm fresh apples!  
  • Tram Ride: Each visitor will enjoy a 20 minute tram ride across the farm, making stops at the corn maze and apple orchard.  
  • Bounce House: The kids can let some energy out while bouncing around in the bounce house.  
  • ​​Corn Crib:  ​Kids love the time they spend playing in the corn kernels. Many make corn angels or go "swimming" in the corn.  
  • Duck Race:  ​Who is going to win?? Children of all ages race plastic ducks down the raging slide and hope their duck makes it there first!
  • Shelter for Rent: An enclosed area is available for any group during lunch or snack time (has heating and air condition). This area is only available through reservations, before your visit.   
  • Other items for sale at the Farm House:  mums, hay/straw bales,  large pumpkins, decorative pumpkins and corn stalks.
