Updates for August 2022

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!

    A visitor writes on October 17, 2010: "Fees are $10 for both children AND adults. I called ahead of time to get 1st time pointers & they failed to tell me that they are a cash-only facility (no checks or credit cards are accepted). There is an ATM machine on site, but you end up paying additional fees. I was also told that no outside food/beverages were allowed in. Their food & drinks have to be purchased with tickets sold within the maze, and their prices are way too high. I recommend that you eat prior or after visiting the maze so that you can get your money's worth. All the activities were fun & entertaining for the children and our kids did have a good time. Our visit to this maze lasted about two hours."

They have a nice set-up and the kids enjoy looking at all the different types of pumpkins and gourds"
