I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our customer, vendors, my family, and friends for helping to make this year's Pumpkin Festival a huge success!
We had beautiful weather and the leaves were at their peak. Couldn't have made it nicer if I tried.
I would especially like to thank my grandmother, Nancy Fox, for passing along the family business to me; the Hartman clan for making our hayride possible (you guys are the best!); Fred Hess for use of the hay wagon; Donna Haines (and Steve) for our wonderful pumpkin patch; Wade Miller and Virginia Thomas for your help (couldn't have had the shop open without you); the Evans' for everything (I can't even begin to name all of the things that you do to make this show a success); Rose Zimmerman for the terrific decorations; John and Sandy Kogut for your wonderful music; Teo (you are so patient in getting everything done - without you I would never be able to pull this off); and last, but not least, Ainsley (you spent a lot of hours tolerating being carried around and passed off so that Mommy and Daddy could make sure things were done and going well).
I am sure that I have missed others who helped and don't think that your time and effort was not appreciated because we are truly grateful for every little thing that is done to help out and make our show a success.
We hope that you can join us next year!

22nd Annual Pumpkin Festival

Our 22nd Annual Pumpkin Festival is quickly approaching...
It is next weekend, October 11th and 12th, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. The festival is held rain or shine! John and Sandy Kogut will grace us with beautiful music. There will be a free hayride and you can take the opportunity to "pick" a pumpkin from our Pumpkin Patch (for a minimal fee of $2). This is a great family activity and hope that you take the time to enjoy it. The leaves are beginning to change and we have a great setting to enjoy that view. There will also be a free door prize drawing.
As always, parking and admission is free.
We hope to see you there!
