2019 Pumpkin Patch Information (also see our Wholesale information)
2019 Pumpkin Season is here now! If you want to visit the pumpkin patch Monday-Friday, you can check in at the Market, grab a wheelbarrow, and head out to the patch. When you get to the patch, the rows run North, South, so walk to the ends of the field and find the drive rows so that you aren’t smashing pumpkins and stems with your wheelbarrow. It’s about a 10 minute walk from the Market, just past the Corn Maze….that’s right we have a CORN MAZE too! Check in and Pay at the Market Monday-Friday for the Corn Maze. Mondays-Fridays, Adults 13 and up are $7. Children 3-12 are $5. Under 3 are free. On Saturdays you can check in and pay for the Corn Maze at the Red Hut at the Maze entrance. Saturday Corn Maze admission fees are Adults 13 and up are $8. Children 3-12 are $6. Under 3 are free. Last entrance to the Maze Monday-Saturday is 4:00 pm. We are closed on Sundays.

You are welcome to pile the wheelbarrow up, but you must be able to get it to the counter in the Market and your vehicle without the pumpkins falling off and without someone holding them on the wheelbarrow.
