Several years ago, some friends of ours began an endeavor known as Harvest Farms. They were just plain ole farmers with a vision…a vision to keep the farm afloat with pumpkins…lots and lots of pumpkins!
We visited the farm the first year they were up and running. A few months later, we moved away and had not been back until this year.
Let me just say WOW!
The business has grown tremendously and we were thrilled to see the fruits of their labors. Our friends told us that the week prior to our visit they had sold 19,000 lbs of pumpkins and seen 2200 people come through the doors. For a tiny town in the middle of nowhere that is utterly amazing!
Here are a few of the “attractions” we enjoyed at the Farms…
The Tractor Derby
The coolest bike ever!
A horse just the right speed for Keian.
Later, we headed out to the pumpkin patch to choose our pumpkins. Megan found this “little” number.
At $.25 a pound with 5 children buying pumpkins, you have to do some weight guess-timation and some mental math along the way. Ty asked me if I thought it weighed about 8#. I tugged at it and said, no, probably more like 10#. AHEM….it was
Word to the wise…pumpkins weigh more than they look!
But, all was well, and everyone found their perfect pumpkin, including little Micah.
And thus ended another pumpkin patch trip! What a blast!
