Due to COVID-19, we've revised our annual event for your safety and comfort. This year, enjoy 1 hour of access to the farm including animals in costume, a small pumpkin for each participant, and a pumpkin decorating kit for each child.

This ticket is non-refundable but can be transferred, gifted or re-sold.

This event is Rain or Shine unless otherwise notified by the venue (we will cancel for extreme weather or down-pouring rain). In the event of cancellation, the ticket will be transferred to another day or a credit will be given. October 31st is being held as a rain date.
