We approach this last weekend of our pumpkin season with mixed emotions. We are excited for Halloween and the Goblin's Egg Hunt on Saturday. It should be a fun day! And, after Sunday's "Stock Up Sale", we are looking forward to a little break and some much-needed rest after the whirlwind months of August, September and October.
But, I get a little melancholy when I think about packing up the gift shop for another year, shutting down the cafe, putting away all the outdoor activities and clearing out the pumpkin barn. It seems like this season has gone especially fast -- I guess its true that the older you get, the faster time flies! We have had so many wonderful folks visit, both new friends and loyal long-time supporters. We will especially miss all their friendly faces.
But, enough gloominess -- we still have one more fun-filled weekend to plan for! This will be our first season with Halloween falling on a Saturday. At 10:15 a.m. sharp we'll start our second-annual Goblin's Egg Hunt. Children ages 12 & under can bring their sacks, Easter baskets or Trick-or-Treat bags and hunt for the hundreds of colorful Goblin's Egg gourds we'll have hidden around the farm. There will be separate hunts for ages 1-5 and 6-12. Be there early so you don't miss any of the fun! In addition, we'll be giving special Trick-or-Treat goodie bags all day to all children who come in costume!
Sunday is our "Stock Up Sale." Fill one of our Radio Flyer wagons with all the pumpkins and squash it can hold for just $10.00! Gourds will be half-price, and there will be great sales in the gift shop on food mixes, jams & jellies, salad dressing, popcorn, Christmas merchandise, clearance fall merchandise, and more!
We hope to see you this weekend at the farm! Happy Haunting!
