Group Prices

We are offering for groups of any size, a chance to pick your own pumpkin, by simply walking to the field. Our Group field is open M-F 9-3, and is planted specifically for the younger set thru about 4th grade. There is no charge for adults in these groups who do not pick a pumpkin, all kids age one and older are allowed one pumpkin of their choice for $2.83, ($3.00 Incl tax). Adults who pick a pumpkin, except one group pumpkin if your group is more than 10, also pay the $3.00.

WHAT YOU'RE BUYING

The group times price, available only during group times, includes the Straw Maze, a (guest supervised) walk to and from the field, and picking one pumpkin per person from the vines (except, obviously, adults no pumpkin) where we grow them in the field. Classes of 10 or more are permitted a "Class Pumpkin" from the field at no extra charge. We also have a picnic area, and you may visit the animals and chickens.

The Public times price includes the Wagon Ride and one pumpkin per person. There is no charge to visit our year-round ranch. We have the best selection and largest pumpkins of any PYO patch in the Valley. Extra pumpkins, once everyone in the school or family group has one each, are charged according to pumpkin size from the extra pumpkin price schedule.

Please allow at least 1½ hour for the wagon ride to the field. We are usually able to hold the round trip to a little over an hour, but then there are flats, mud, slow boarders, etc. Keep in mind you're visiting a year round actual working Ranch.

Remember, we accept CASH and CHECKS only.

When visiting the animals please do not feed them hay, grass, weeds, corn, or other feedstuffs we have. They can't overeat on the pellets (grain for the chickens but not the sheep) we have in the dispensers. Cows are pretty much see only.
