Frequently asked questions about the pumpkin patch
What should I wear to the farm?
Farms are dirty, with weeds, bugs, and uneven ground everywhere, so we ask that everyone, especially children wear good walking shoes with closed toes. No Sandals should be worn. Also, you should plan on your children getting a little dirty in the hay castle.
Should I bring cash or do you take debit/credit cards?
We now accept debit and credit cards. No checks please.
Is there anything to eat?
Yes, we will have food and beverages for sale, but you are welcome to bring a picnic lunch to enjoy in our expanded picnic area.
What else should I bring?
Bug spray and your CAMERA! Photo opportunities are everywhere. NO PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHERS ALLOWED unless permission is granted in advance.
Do you really grow your own pumpkins?
Yes we do! We grow a variety of pumpkin called the Orange Bulldog, which was developed by the University of Georgia a couple of years ago. Traditional looking pumpkins do not grow well in our areas heat and humidity, so UGA developed this seed to be planted in early summer and ready for harvest around Halloween. Along with the Orange Bulldog, we have plenty of other kinds of pumpkins for sale too, in all different shapes, colors, and sizes.
What's new this year?
This year our new additions to the farm are our animals. We have pigs, two goats, and lots of chickens, each with a specific job here at the farm. Come and meet some of them during the pumpkin patch!
What else is there for purchase, or should I expect to pay for anything else once inside the farm?
You admission covers all our activities - hay ride, kiddie corn maze, animal visit, one shot with the sling shot, hay castle play, and a trip into the pumpkin patch. If you choose, you do NOT have to purchase anything else. However, we do have lots of things for sale at the farm: fall produce, fall decorations (hay bales, corn stalks, gourds) concessions - hotdogs, chips, drinks, etc., baked goods, extras shots at the sling shot, animal feed to give to our animals, and of course, any pumpkin you want to take home would be extra.
