By | News | No Comments

Thank you for a wonderful Pumpkin Patch Season! We had a blast and hope your family did too! We’re always so grateful at the end of October for all our old friends and new that we’ve been able to meet or catch up with throughout the season. We love sharing our family with you and appreciate you doing likewise with your families.

We’ll be opening our gates for Pumpkin Season 2018 on September 28th, 2018 and cannot wait to see how your family has grown, just like our pumpkins.

Make sure you sign up for our emails, sent infrequently, to keep you up to date on what goes on at the farm during the off-season. The form can be found on our homepage.

Again, Thanks for coming out and enjoying the farm with us!

New Activities for the 2017 Season

We’ve been working hard during the off season to give you the best experience we possibly can! Here are a few additions coming to the farm this fall.

  1. More space to pick and play! We’ve extended the production space on our farm, doubling what we once had dedicated to pumpkins and sunflowers. To put this in perspective, we’re a 20 acre farm. We’ve been using 5 acres in previous years to grow pumpkins, sunflowers, run hayrides, house farm animals, and more. This year we have expanded to include 10 acres of usable land to grow pumpkins and sunflowers and play! We have plans to expand the farm every year until all 20 acres are usable to you!
  2. We’ve added a crop maze! If you’re not sure what a crop maze is, think corn maze only shorter in height. We’ve plowed a maze through this really tall grass so it will be fun for all ages trying to make it out on the other side.
  3. Longer hayrides! Because we’ve doubled the farm in size, think of the hayride as fun transportation to the back of the farm where the pumpkins and sunflowers are. Our farmers will take you to the pumpkin patch and drop you off. There you can explore as long as you’d like and when you’re ready to head to the play area, maze, farm animals, or call it a day, our farmers will pick you back up for the second half of the hayride back to the front. In previous years the hayride was an additional cost but this year its included in our activities fee ($2 for 13 years old and older).
  4. Family Fun Fridays! Every Friday during the month of October we’ll be bringing you what we’re calling Family Fun Fridays. There will be visits from princesses, tailgates before home games, cowboys and cowgirls and an “Anything but Scary Farmer’s Halloween.” Most of these nights we’ll be doing giveaways or running specials on our activities fees. We’ll be updating those dates here and on our Facebook so check back for a list of dates.
  5. New Farm Animals! We know you’ve been able to love on Willie the Goat, Patches the Baby Cow, Lucy and Ethel the pigs, the rabbits if you could catch them, and the baby chicks who had no names because there were so many of them! This year we’ll be bringing a whole new group to the farm, because at the end of every season our animals go to new loving homes so they can be cared for and make new friends! There’s only one way to see who’s new at the Pumpkin Patch and that’s to come visit us!

We Open Septepmber 29th at 3:00 and we’ll be open September 30th from 9:00am until 6:00pm. Come celebrate fall with us!

New Pricing Details

Over the past few years, we at the Farmer In The Dell Pumpkin Patch have had an incredibly heart-warming amount of success and support from our local community. We are so pleased to be able to offer our pumpkin patch once again to everyone in the Auburn/Opelika areas, or anyone willing to make the trip down wire road to see us.

In order to give as many people as possible the best experience we can at the patch, we have decided to include a hay ride (previously $3 per person) for everyone that enters the pumpkin patch during the fall. Admission will be free for children 12 and younger, with adult admission (13 and older) costing only $2.

Also included in the cost of admission is access to the sunflower field/farm/animals/play area/crop maze as well as the hay ride. Season passes will be available for $5 per individual, that gives unlimited access to the farm activities and 1 hay ride per visit. If you plan on coming out to the patch more than once, that is the best deal for you.

We absolutely love that people of all ages enjoy the patch, and look forward to elementary school groups, college students, families, and friends enjoying our rustic little pumpkin patch. Don’t miss out on our Friday activity events! Details about events coming soon. Here are the rest of the pricing details for the upcoming pumpkin season!

  • Pumpkins –  priced per pound, $3 minimum
  • Sunflowers – $1.00/stem or $10.00/dozen
  • Concessions – served Saturdays as available
