About Fall Harvest

Milky Way Farm hosts Pumpkin Harvest Season, a pick-your-own pumpkin patch and corn maze from Sept 28-Oct 27 – five weekends. On Pumpkin Harvest weekends, the farm is open from 10am-5pm Saturdays and Sundays, and free hayrides run continuously to take visitors to the pumpkin patch. An easy walking path is also available for those who choose to stroll to the patch. Weekend visitors enjoy our young farm animals, corn maze, farm fresh ice cream and other products. The farm is also open for pumpkin sales during weekdays in October from 3pm-5pm. Only the walking path is available during weekdays; we do not offer hayrides on weekdays. We grow 7-8 acres of pumpkins, which yield approximately 25,000 pumpkins in a favorable weather year. Visitors to the farm can purchase pumpkins  from the pumpkin patch often right off the vine or select them in the sales area. We also grow and sell other fall harvest products, such as gourds, Indian corn, crook-neck pumpkin, squash, corn stalk bundles, miniature pumpkins and many fall decorative items.   We welcome and schedule groups of any size on Pumpkin Harvest weekends that come to visit the pumpkin patch. Please e-mail us in advance to schedule for groups in excess of fifteen (15) persons.
