Pumpkin Patch

 

Due to COVID-19, this year’s Pumpkin Patch will be much different than in years past. We are modifying and scaling this event down to ensure the safety of all visitors as well as our staff.  When the Pumpkin Patch reaches capacity, as one family/group exits, another family/group will be allowed to enter.

To purchase a pumpkin, you will have several options shown to you by a staff member from behind a counter that you can choose from. You will not be able to walk around and pick out a pumpkin like in previous years.

In addition to the train and hay wagon ride, there will be a couple game booths that will be sanitized after every use and a few photo opportunity areas for you to take photos with your family or group.

We hope that by hosting this modified event, we can help keep Fall traditions alive for your family.

We strongly recommend visiting us during the week or early morning weekend hours to avoid any lines and ask for cooperation and patience when visiting.

We look forward to seeing you soon.
