Hayrides to the Pumpkin Patch

Hayrides to the pumpkin patch begin when the pumpkins start to ripen in September, and will continue until our final day of the season on Halloween.

Hayrides to the pumpkin patch start up again in Fall 2021.

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.

Purchasing Pumpkins

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!

Some Pumpkin Facts

  • Beginning early in May and continuing into June ~15,000 pumpkin seeds are planted in stages in peat pellets and set out in trays in the greenhouse
  • Once seeds have sprouted and plants are beginning to grow they are transplanted into the fields
  • This year we planted over 40 different kinds of pumpkins, including some exciting new varieties – we have:
    • large carving pumpkins
    • specialty pumpkins (red, yellow, striped, warty and more!)
    • small kid-sized pumpkins
    • pie pumpkins
    • white pumpkins in a range of sizes
    • hard-shelled painting pumpkins
    • miniature pumpkins (ideal for the little ones or fall displays)
  • Weeding and watering continues throughout the summer
  • Pumpkins become ripe starting in September and continuing through October, depending on the variety and weather
