Updates for September 2020
Most pumpkin patches and corn mazes usually open by mid September, some
earlier! You may also like a
local zombie event or Zombie Paintball!. The world's best
pumpkin pie recipe is here, and the
crust recipe is here! And we have
canning, preserving, drying and freezing directions. You can access many
pumpkin and other recipes and other resources from the drop down menus at the
top of the page or the site search.
Keep in mind, many farms, pumpkin patches, corn mazes and Haunted Houses are trying to cope with rapidly changing state COVID requirements: ALWAYS
see their own website, Facebook page or call them before you go.
NOTE: Many of the farms are dropping their websites and switching to Facebook pages - but they don't tell
anyone, including search engines like Google, Bing, Yahoo or us, or redirect their website, thus breaking all links to them. If a link is broken
please click the "click here to report a broken link or blank page" so we can find the replacement link! Thanks!
After Halloween, find a Christmas tree at a
Christmas tree farm (and enjoy a bonfire, smore, hot chocolate and
free hayrides, and often Santa visits! And next Spring, you'll want to take your
children to a free Easter egg hunt -

A visitor writes on October 11, 2010: "Yes, this farm is
well run and has everything--animals, hay/wagon rides, food, and
good PYO fruit, however, it will be a long time before I go
back, especially for apples. It is SO crowded, the lines are
ridiculously long, and the prices are sky-high. If you want to
take your kids, they each have to get a tote or tray (applies or
strawberries) for a flat rate; you could easily drop 50 bucks,
and you feel like you're at a theme park, not the country.
Choose one of the smaller, less popular farms if you want a
lovely, reasonably priced PYO experience."
