It's that time of year where we go out in search of the perfect pumpkin to carve, get scared walking through haunted houses

& enjoy everything FALL. So we've put together a list to help you find just what you're looking for!



Pumpkin Patches

You can pick your selection of pumpkins from our pre-picked selection, or take some clippers (provided by our farm) and cut them right off the vine! They offer children’s area, Illinois Bicentennial Corn Maze, bean maze & petting zoo.
