The Pumpkin Patch
Several varieties of pumpkins are grown at Russell Farms. Individuals,
groups, or classes can take a ride on a hay wagon to pick their
own special pumpkin.
There are two corn mazes this year, depending on the amount of time you are wanting to spend at the farm and/or level of difficulty. A smaller 5 acre maze with a scavenger hunt theme is available for anyone wanting to find their way around while searching for designated farm items throughout the maze. A larger 10 acre, scavenger hunt maze is available for those with more time and eager for a real challenge.
The Russells know that most children and adults come to a pumpkin patch to have fun and get a pumpkin! While doing so, almost every fun activity has an educational farm theme along side it or an actual person to talk to and answer questions. While having fun everyone is learning a little here and there about the farm culture!
The farm animal exhibit has been enlarged for anyone wishing to learn the animals’ habits and usefulness on a farm. Two of our new family members are Lonnie Llama and Teddy the Baby Doll sheep. They join the many boer goats, pygmy goats, turkeys, pigs, miniature horses, peacocks, ducks, chickens, and of course cats! Everyone can enjoy petting and learning the roles that these animals have on the farm.
Two country stores are located on the farm, full of Fall decorations,
fudge, apple butter, toys, candles, clothing, candy, warm apple
cider, and much more!
Plan on eating lunch or a snack while at Russell Farms. Hot dogs,
hamburgers, walking tacos, chips, apples (even with caramel), sodas, hot chocolate,
coffee, apple cider and more are available at the Snack Shack. Many picnic
tables are under a tent for everyone's convenience.
