Harvestville Farm is a three-season agri-tainment business, open April-December. Throughout September and October the farm and retail barn are bursting with over 150 varieties of pumpkins, squash and gourds, along with fall décor, seasonal perennials and hardy mums.
The Harvestville Play Areas are also open for families to enjoy, with activities that include: the giant corn pool, tire pyramids, trike tracks, rubber ducky races, giant slide, hay bale jump, horse swings, wiggle cars & flying turtles, sand box, playhouses & workshop, bean bag tosses and their famous Jumping Pillow. The additional play area this year includes: human hamster wheels, straw jumps, large trike track, tether balls, pumpkin bowling, and oversized board/yard games. Activities are available for all ages and abilities.
The 10-Acre Corn Maze is also open throughout September and October. Filled with twists and turns, it’s good farmin’ fun for adults and kids alike! Horse-drawn wagon rides and special events are also held each weekend throughout September and October.
Be sure to schedule a group presentation to go along with your visit. Topics of discussion can vary from how Harvestville got its start and the growth of their business, to details regarding how they maintain their summer garden, plants/annuals, and the 40+ acre pumpkin crop. If visiting during the summer, you’ll want to take part in their Summer Speaker Series.
The Pitchfork Café serves a full lunch menu Monday-Friday from 11am to 1pm, along with beverages and homemade desserts throughout each weekday afternoon. A concession-style menu is available on Saturdays and Sundays from 11am to 5pm.
