PUMPKINS~ Pumpkin Patch closed for Fall 2016 

Admission to the pumpkin patch is free. Weekend Hay Rides are $1 per person 2 years and up.  You may choose a pumpkin from the market area or take a short walk out to our patch in the orchard.  Feel free to bring your own wagon to assist with your harvest!  Don't forget your camera!   Please, no dogs permitted in the orchard.

Weekend FALL HAYRIDES~&">Farmer Don's fun facts:

  • A solid green pumpkin picked in October will turn orange by Christmas!  Pumpkins continue to "ripen" both on and off the vine!
  •  Pumpkins are fruit.
  • Colonists sliced off pumpkin tips; removed seeds and filled the insides with milk,
    spices and honey. This was baked in hot ashes and is the origin of pumpkin pie.
  • The largest pumpkin ever grown weighed 1,140 pounds.

    Farmer Phil's  fun facts:

  • Once picked, don't throw the apples into the baskets, place them in gently, or they will bruise and spoil quicker than ones placed gently and non bruised!
  • Keep apples refrigerated to preserve crispness!
  • It takes the energy from 50 leaves to produce one apple.
  • It takes about 36 apples to create one gallon of apple cider.
We look forward to your visit at Sun High!
