Frequently asked questions about the pumpkin patch
What is the admission price to get into the farm? For 2016, admission is $7.00 per person for all ages and ages 2 and under are FREE! This price includes admission only and doesn't cover any drinks, food, or PUMPKIN - pumpkin is extra! Unlimited sliding, goats visits, bouncy houses and corn maze with paid admission. General admission is Thursday & Friday 10-2 and Saturdays 10-6. 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 family land on three sides of us for room to expand. 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 expell some of that pent-up energy, and you're not chasing them over acres and acres of land.
How big is your corn maze?
5 acres for 2016 - designed for the little ones and older folks alike! Not to big, but not to small!
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 food and beverages for sale, but you are welcome to bring a picnic lunch 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 called the Orange Bulldog, which was 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?
Try our ROTTEN tomato sling shot! Back by popular demand from previous years, each guest receives a ticket for one free shot on the slings shots. Our super sling shots are super fun! And you'll even want to enjoy some heated competition with your friends on who can hit the target the most! Extra shots are available for purchase.
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 - hay ride, corn maze, animal visit, hay play, sliding, bouncy house 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 (hay bales, corn stalks, gourds) concessions - hotdogs, chips, drinks, etc., 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 with pony rides, face painting, and other activities. 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. Hours for pumpkin sales are 10-6 every Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
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.
