Giant Pumpkins

Looking for a really HUGE pumpkin? Yes, we grow and sell three different varieties that can frequently weigh well over 100-200 pounds. If you’re interested in one of these giant pumpkins, give us a call and we’ll be glad to tag one for you.

Pumpkin Painting & Decorations

Pumpkins are not just for carving and for baking – they can also provide beautiful fall decoration in a fun and creative way. Each fall we transform hundreds of pumpkins of all varieties into Autumn décor such as centerpieces, focal points in a pumpkin/gourd display and even as a thoughtful gift. One of our many designers are available every day to help you transform that perfect pumpkin or gourd into something unexpected. The transformation can easily be done while you shop or as you’re enjoying the afternoon at the farm.

Pumpkin painting is another form of taking that perfect pumpkin to the next level. There are so many options to choose from – a name, favorite sports team, Fall/Halloween greeting, picture – the possibilities are endless! Let one of our many pumpkin painters help you or your child transform your favorite pumpkin into something special.

Please keep in mind that there are no electrical outlets at our bonfire sites. 

Weiner Boxes

Don't want to haul your own food to the farm? Weiner boxes are available for $8.00 for our guests who reserve a bonfire. Each box contains a hot dog, condiments, one bag of chips, all the fixings for one s'more, and a drink (juice box for kids and bottled water for adults).

Guests are welcome to purchase food, drinks, and treats from The Pitchfork Café. Our Fall menu ranges from hot dogs, pulled pork sandwiches, walking tacos, nachos and more.

Bonfire Site Policies & Safety

Some things to think about prior to reserving a bonfire site:

Alcohol is not permitted.

Cancellations need to be made 48 hours in advance in order to receive a full refund or a refund will be given due to inclement weather.

During the months of September and October, wind can tend to be quite an issue here at the farm, which quickly becomes a safety concern. If strong winds are a factor on your reserved day, you will be contacted in ample time to reschedule.

The Fall season can be a damp one. Even though it may be rainy at times in the morning, that afternoon and/or early evening can be perfect campfire weather. That is why we go ahead with most campfires even when the day starts with rain showers. Sometimes rain does continue for the entire day and those are the days that we encourage you to reschedule.

Perfect activity for kids! 

Build Your Own Scarecrow

Come and build your own scarecrow and leave the mess with us! Each scarecrow can be personalized with its own shirt, pair of pants, and hat, which is included in the cost. Displaying your handmade scarecrow at your home is the perfect way to celebrate the Autumn season. Prefer a scarecrow on a smaller scale? How about a baby scarecrow!
