The Great Pumpkin Patch is proud to invite guests to see over 300 varieties of pumpkins, squash and gourds from over 30 countries around the world; all grown here on our farm. We have a u-pick patch, numerous premier displays, over 5.000 hardy mums, various mazes (including a 1 acre corn maze) and gardens grace the grounds. We exhibit our love for diversity, through not only plants, but animals- featuring several goats, pigs, exotic chickens, rabbits, a llama and an alpaca. There are several places to eat and drink on the farm and lots of entertainment on the weekends. We are also the home of The Homestead Bakery, a full-line made-from-scratch bakery and The Homestead Seeds, our heirloom seed business which features over 200 varieties of cucurbit seeds. - September 15-October 31
