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!
