Have you been to The 200 Acres Great Pumpkin Patch? Then share photos of your experience!

The Great Pumpkin Patch is proud to invite guests to see over 300 varieties of pumpkins, squash and gourds from over 30 countries around the world; all grown here on our farm. We sit on 14 acres of displays and gardens and there are lots of entertainment on the weekends.

We feature a historic one-room schoolhouse, animals, mazes, museum, gift shop & Seed Store. Numerous premier displays, over 5,000 hardy mums, various mazes and gardens grace the grounds.

Things to Do & See:

U-Pick Patch:
While we have plenty of pre-picked pumpkins for you to choose from, some people just like to pick their own. There are hundreds that are still on the vine so you can find those perfect pumpkins just for you.

The Great Maize Maze (Weekends & Columbus Day):
A full acre, cornfield maze with an elevated platform at the center giving you a great view of The Patch.

Miscellaneous Mazes and Meanders:
We also have the Straw Bale, Sunflower, Broomcorn and even a Mini Maze for toddlers. We like mazes – they’re just plain fun. Or take a stroll through two unique habitats: the Miscanthus Meander, a winding path through 14 ft tall Floridian grass and the new Prairie Wander, filled with diverse native prairie. These mazes and meanders are all included with admission and available every day.

Wanda’s Haunted Crib:
The mildest haunted barn you’ll ever encounter. Seriously, this is for the faint of heart.

The TGPP Express Wagon Ride (Weekends & Columbus Day):
Board the TGPP Express and take a tour of the Patch while learning about its history and how pumpkin farming has evolved over the years.

TGPP Museum:
A glimpse at the history of the Patch through pictures, videos and relics.

The Pumpkin Tree:
One of the longest running and most recognized displays of the entire Patch. It stands proudly at the center of all the activity.

Farm Animals:
Llama, pot bellied pigs, goats, sheep, chickens, roosters, turkeys and geese – and look for the Three Little Pigs & the Billy Goats Gruff!

Giant Corn Shock Tower:
Marvel at perhaps the world’s tallest corn shock, containing more than 1500 corn stalks.

Rainbow O’Squash – Squash come in an array of colors and the Rainbow O’Squash highlights just how true that is.

The A to Z of Squash – There really are squash for every letter of the alphabet (from Amish Pie to Zulu) and we’ve gathered them here to prove it.

Mum Quilts – Every year we grow about 5000 mums and you can see “quilts” made with these beauties throughout the grounds.

Gardens – Scattered throughout the Patch you’ll find areas of botanical diversity and beauty, including a Children’s garden and Conifer garden. Email Haunt Owner
