Frequently asked questions about the pumpkin patch
COVID-19 STATEMENT - Due to CDC guidelines and recommendations from our County government, we will not have a Hayride nor open the Corn Pit, to help ensure social distancing. We will be providing extra hand washing stations and hand sanitizer to help slow the spread of the Coronavirus. We ask that everyone maintain social distancing while enjoying our farm.
What is the admission price to get into the farm? For 2020, admission is $5 per person for all ages, and ages 3 and under are FREE! There are NO DISCOUNTS this year because of the low price. Admission includes unlimited sliding, goats visits, tire playground, hay play and corn maze. General admission is Thursdays and Fridays, 10-2, with the last tickets being sold at 1 p.m. Saturdays 10-6, Sundays 12-6. Last ticket sold at 5 p.m. Come early in the season if you want a homegrown pumpkin, come later in the season to enjoy better weather!
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 DIRTY in the hay.
How big is your farm?
We own 22 acres of land, with a little room to grow. It is not a lot compared to other farms in the Agri-tourism industry, but we love it's size. We design our activities for children aged 3-10 and that fits right along with our small size. You will NOT spend all day walking around 50 acres of crops, nor getting extremely lost in our corn maze. We design our fun so that your little ones can expel some of that pent-up energy, and you're not chasing them over acres and acres of land. They'll sleep good after visiting us, we promise!!
How big is your corn maze?
3.5 acres for 2020 - designed for the little ones and older folks alike! Not to big, but not to small! And perfect to get lost in. NO HAUNTED CORN MAZE FOR 2020 BECAUSE OF COVID.
Should I bring cash or do you take debit/credit cards?
We love cash, but do take debit and credit cards.
Is there anything to eat?
Yes, we will have pre-packaged food and beverages for sale, but you are always welcome to bring a picnic lunch and blanket to enjoy in our picnic area.
What else should I bring?
Bug spray and sun screen if you like and your CAMERA! Photo opportunities are everywhere. NO PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHERS ALLOWED unless permission is granted in advance, on a scheduled date, with signed photography agreement.
Do you really grow your own pumpkins?
Yes we do! We grow a variety of pumpkin developed by the University of Georgia a couple of years ago. Traditional looking pumpkins do not grow well with our area's 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. Come early in the season if you want to pick your own from the vine though! They go fast!! The first week is recommended.
What's new this year?
NOTHING, because of this stupid VIRUS!
What else is there for purchase, or should I expect to pay for anything else once inside the farm?
Your admission covers all OUR activities - corn maze, animal visit, hay play, slide, tire playground and a trip into the pumpkin patch (PUMPKIN IS EXTRA). 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 (corn stalks, gourds) concessions, baked goods, animal feed to give to our animals and of course, any pumpkin you want to take home would be extra. Vendors are often here as well. These are all EXTRA.
Do I have to pay admission if I only want to buy a pumpkin?
If you only want to buy a pumpkin, you don't have to pay admission, but you can only choose from the pumpkins that we have on display. You can not walk out into the pumpkin patch where the pumpkins are growing, unless you pay admission.
Is a pumpkin included in the price of admission?
NO, pumpkins are extra and are NOT included with admission. Pumpkin prices range from $1 to $30 depending on the size, shape, and color of the pumpkin. You don't have to purchase a pumpkin.
