Pumpkin Update October for week 3
Thank you for being a part of PUMPKIN DAY here on the farm! I hope your time was good and it becomes one of those cherished moments.
Special thanks to the people who helped out for the day. It was particularly challenging with such a large turn out. It takes people who care to create a safe and pleasant environment. So please know your help is valued.
We apology to all who found themselves waiting in a long line to go to the pumpkin patch. I had made some adjustments to help eliminate the long lines. However it wasn’t enough. There really needed to be two wagons for the pumpkin patch not one.
This Friday afternoon(October 22, 3-5pm) and Saturday morning ( October 23, 10am-1pm) we will have the pumpkin patch open. This Saturday we will have another pig race at 10:00 am and 2:00 pm. There will still be lots to do and see at the farm although the farm games and pumpkin painting will not be available as they were on Pumpkin Day.
There are still some times left for night time hay rides. See web site for more information. Just call or email to see about reservations.
Don’t forget about the Garden Center for flowers, pumpkins, Fall decor and very importantly Holiday gift ideas. Now is a great time to shop and buy for the gardener.
The Produce market has some very good apple cider, grape juices made right on the farm. The apple selection is very good as well. We still have heirloom pumpkins, persimmons, chestnuts, sweet potatoes, and soon more heirloom tomatoes. The weather has slowed the ripening on the tomatoes but they will come. We have some good mustard greens and peppers, basil, beans, acorn squash and more.
The Bakery is getting ready for the Holidays too. So don’t forget to let them help you this year also.
