We are open daily at the Pumpkin Farm from 10am to Dusk.  During the week the Pumpkin Palace is open where you can buy Halloween decorations and gifts, old fashioned candy, apple cider and baked goods (Sorry! Donuts are only made on the weekends!).


This Fall Festival is our way of celebrating the harvest of blessings we enjoy in our community and our nation. It has grown to be, by far, the largest family event in the region. We believe that’s because it’s based on the root values we share in the cultures that make up this remarkable community.

We come together to share in the bounty of our land and enjoy the wonderful fall season our region is blessed with. The Great Pumpkin Farm Fall Festival is about wholesome fun and food. About decorating our homes for the season. As each pumpkin leaves here we know it will be the center of a family carving and decorating event. The laughter of the children and their parents warms our hearts and makes the gargantuan effort our family and our associates put into this event so worthwhile.

We welcome you and hope you enjoy our Festival as much as we enjoy creating it and having you here as our guests.

Enjoy Your Visit!
