New for Fall 2016! We Offer a Pick-Your-Own Pumpkin Patch

This year we have a special section of our fields set aside for the "Pick-Your-Own" patch. Just take the shuttle back to the pumpkin field and you'll be able to select just the pumpkin that will fill your needs. We will continue to have wagonloads of prepicked pumpkins up near the pumpkin barn as well as gourds, syrup, honey, corn stalks, woodcraft items, decorative straw bales, refreshements, and much much more for sale. And don't forget the childrens' exploration area. It's back again after being such a popular attraction in it's inaugural year in 2015. So stop by Homestead Animal Farm and pick up just the right pumkin for 2016 and stay for the animals, the hayride, and the maze while you are here! Here's a link to the fall maze season information.

We will continue to offer prepicked pumpkins this year but now also a pick-your-own section of the field.

Pumpkins! Pumpkins! Pumpkins!

I'll take this one Dad!

Be sure to stop in at the Pumpkin Barn when you visit our animals or come to try the corn maze. We sell pumpkins, gourds, squash, indian corn, corn bundles, various sizes of straw bales, maple syrup, and Homestead honey. We offer an I Spy Hayride around the farm where participants look for special objects displayed along the hayride trail and match them to a list of items posted in the hay wagon. And new for 2015, we have a children's play area (see the last four journal entries for more information).

Pumpkin Barn hours are the same as the maze hours.

Hey Mom, what's that?
