Prices start as low as $.50 and priced according to the size of the pumpkin you pick out. The proceeds from our fundraising efforts supplement our youth budget.
In our Pumpkin Patch, we have a fully stocked Pumpkin Store. If it looks like a pumpkin or has anything to do with pumpkins, we will have it. We also have a delicious assortment of jar goods, handcrafted decorations, bales of hay, Indian corn, and gourds.
Bring your family, neighbors and friends. Not only does it serve as a great picture spot, it’s a place where all who visit are greeted with Christ’s love, truth and joy.
