Pick your Own Pumpkin
OPENING SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 30th
Our pumpkins come in all shapes and sizes! And our pumpkin patch proves this every year. Folks from Houston, Magnolia, Tomball, The Woodlands, Conroe and even College Station love coming to our farm.
There is nothing like picking a fresh pumpkin straight off the vine. Carve them, turn them into pie or roast the seeds for a healthy snack. We never use pesticides and we farm using organic methods.
Pumpkin season usually starts in early October, but if you want to be notified when the pumpkin patch is ready then sign up for our email. (Don’t worry, we hate spam so your email is safe with us.)
