Burjan's Pumpkin Festival will open on September 27th this year and run through October 26th. We are also open on Columbus day!!
Hours are from 10am - 6pm (Hayrides begin @11am and end about 5pm)!
For these five weeks out of each year we call ourselves Burjan's Pumpkin Festival. Otherwise we are simply known as Burjan's Kennel & Game Farm.
We thank you for joining us today.
As you take the hayride we would like you to be aware of all the sites you will see and the history of our farm.
Our location began on Higginsville Road were we purchased 30 acres in the early 60's. It was here we began our farming operation, the raising of game birds and training of bird dogs.
It wasn't long before we out grew the 30 acres. In the mid 70's we purchased the larger section of this farm, 200 acres. In the mid 90's we purchased another 12 acres on Old York Road, giving us a total of 242 acres.
We are a family farm. Other than the occasional part time help, family members do all the work, from the youngest to the oldest. We grow corn (for grain), soybeans, wheat, rye, oats and a variety of hay. Much of our harvested grain is used in the making of feed to accommodate our flock of game birds.
Although we are a licensed kennel and raise dogs, we do not do general boarding. Instead we specialize in the training of field dogs for the purpose of hunting upland game and for the sport known as field trials. From our kennel are many Nat'l Champions, Nat'l Grand Champions, top stud dogs and bitches bred to hunt and trial, all under the standards of the American Kennel Club and the American Field.
We are currently one of the largest suppliers of game birds in New Jersey, raising between 30,000 to 50,000 ring-neck pheasant yearly.
As you take our hayride please enjoy the scenic sites. On the way to the patch you will drive by one of our flight pens and catch a look at a few pheasants. Enjoy also your view of 150 acres of farmland, along with a view of the village of Three Bridges (look for the church steeple).
The Sauerland Mountains are to the north. You might want to take your camera to take a picture or two.
Study the setting to catch a look at Red Tail Hawks hunting in late mornings and early afternoons. Perhaps a herd of White Tail Deer and Wild Turkeys gazing in one of the far off fields.
It might interest you to know that in 1994 we put 100 acres into Farmland Preservation. Several years later we added another 130 acres. Our farm along with the neighboring farms equals approximately 800 acres that will never be developed.
The complete ride will take about 20 minutes. The amount of time you spend selecting your pumpkins depends on you. You can always return on another wagon.
It gets windy on the hill, you might want to bring a sweater or jacket if it's a chilly day.
