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 pie crust recipe is here! And we have home 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 local 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 - see our companion website to find a local Easter Egg hunt.  If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to write me!

    A visitor writes on September 24, 2007: "Coolspring, this is there 3rd year and they just keep getting better. I had the priviledge of getting to know the owners and was commissioned to air brush/paint the entrance to the maze. This year it is a 16' x 16' tunnel complete with an old steam engine and coal car coming out of it. The end of the maze is at the Caboose, it is an actual Caboose complete with rail road tracks and a working crossing light. Inside the caboose is a DVD of photos from the past 3 years. There is always different things going on, the ReMax Hot air balloon was just there and will be back in October. You can go on Hay Wagon ride, eat popcorn, and the kids love the hay maze. Make sure you visit the one room school house gift shop. The school house is all original and in great shape, it alone is a must see. The 2 seater outhouse although non functioning is still out back and makes a great photo op.  DONT FORGET YOUR CAMERA.  ".
