Is there anything that says “Autumn” more than a hayride to pick up a McNab's pumpkin? We sure don’t think so!
Read on for some answers to common questions about hayrides at McNab's, or scroll a bit further down for some more general information.
For the 2022 season hayrides to the pumpkin patch start on September 30th.
Absolutely! Regular hayrides around the farm and corn maze are ongoing from September 16th thru 29th.
Because the pumpkins aren't ready yet! Hayrides to the pumpkin patch begin again when the pumpkins start to ripen late September, and will continue until our final day of the season on Halloween.
Please see the corn maze page for our 2022 hours.
No, pumpkins are an additional cost. Prices vary depending on the size of the pumpkin (scroll down to see a photo of our Pumpkin Pricing Hoops™).
For sure! If you’d like a hayride only and don’t plan to get lost in the corn maze, our hayride-only tickets are available at a steep discount (ticket prices are lower down the page).
Take a hayride to the pumpkin patch and then jump back on with your pumpkin for a ride around the corn maze. Once the hay wagon drops you off in the pumpkin patch you can take as much time as you want to look around and pick out your perfect pumpkin. Pumpkins are paid for right in the field prior to catching a ride back on the hay wagon.
The hayride circles the corn maze and is an adventure in itself – you can just enjoy the ride even if picking out a pumpkin is not on your list!
There are 2 hay wagons that run nonstop on busy days. When it isn't as busy, hayrides occur on a more informal schedule – Murray, our fearless hayride operator, is just a text away.
Remember to account for the weather – both the day of your visit and from the preceding week or so. Dirt + water = mud, so bring your boots.
Our pumpkins range in price depending on the size and the variety. We've got some handy "pumpkin hoops" to help us determine how much to charge.
One of our customers said it best years ago: our pumpkins might cost a tad more than at big-box grocery stores, but the photos you'll get in our pumpkin patch will be a lot better!
It’s no secret, we have a passion for pumpkins. We would like to share this passion with you so we are introducing our “Pumpkin of the Week” for the 2019 season.
