Hay wagon rides go from 10:00-6:00 on weekends, holidays and professional days, and 3:00-6:00 on weekdays throughout October.

We also have mini-pumpkins, gourds, cornstalks and hay bales available for sale at the farm stand. Don’t forget your winter veggies from our general store!  Finish off your day with a visit to our cows and chickens.

  • If you want to get your pumpkin from the field, plan at least an hour for your visit.
  • We have parking available on our farm, with overflow parking on the road. But make sure to check our lot first!
