This weekend brings more excitement to the farm, with the arrival of pumpkins for sale at the Maze and a visit from the Las Arañas Spinners and Weavers Guild, on Saturday, October 13th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Back in season are our pumpkins – both Jack-o-Lanterns and pie pumpkins – and they’re here for the whole Maze season. Pumpkins are available at the Maze tent, as well as at the brand new Pumpkin Patch, located behind the parking lot. The Pumpkin Patch is part of a package deal which adds excitement to the “pumpkin patch” experience, with three levels of difficulty — Easy Peasy, Rough ‘n Tumble, and Enter If You Dare — making picking your pumpkin an even more fun family activity.
In addition to the Spinning Guild, the farm will have sheep, angora goat and mini horses visiting on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Also the Maze will have a Hay Bale City with jumping areas, a crawling tunnel, and farm animals. In partnership with the BioPark, there are interactive educational games, such as a River Dig Box and “guess the animal” demonstrations focused on amphibians and their role in our environment.
Ticket prices for the maze & pumpkin package run $12 for adults, and $10 for kids. Pumpkins will be available for sale during Maze hours, selling for $3 (pie pumpkins) and $5 (Jack-o-Lanterns). Pumpkins will be available at both the Maze and the Pumpkin Patch for customers’ convenience. Pumpkins can also be purchased as part of the maze/farm tour for groups.
