Pumpkin Patch

As you set foot on the farm, you'll be greeted by a sight that will take your breath away - a sea of vibrant orange pumpkins stretching as far as the eye can see. But it's not just the classic pumpkins that steal the show here. Hatters Farm takes pride in offering a fantastic variety of pumpkins and squash, each with its own unique shape, size, and color. From medium-sized pumpkins perfect for carving to lovely pumpkins that make beautiful table centerpieces, there's something for everyone.

The pumpkin patch itself is the main attraction at Hatters Farm. With a huge selection of pumpkins, finding your perfect match is guaranteed. Kids and adults alike will love meandering through the pumpkin forest, where pumpkins of all shapes and sizes are carefully arranged. It's a whimsical adventure that will leave you feeling like you've stepped into a storybook.

Pumpkin Nights

An exciting experience for kids explore the Hatters Farm Pumpkin Patch at night! Enjoy all the same activities as in the daytime but with an extra spooky twist as you'll be guided by moonlight.

Hatters Farm Maize Maze

But the pumpkin patch is just the beginning of the fun at Hatters Farm. Families can enjoy a wide range of activities and entertainment throughout their visit. Take a break from pumpkin picking and test your skills in the thrilling maize maze. Get lost in the twists and turns as you search for hidden treasures within the towering walls of corn.

And when hunger strikes, take a break at one of the food trucks serving up delicious hot food. Treat yourself to mouthwatering treats, from gourmet burgers to piping hot fries. Sip on hot drinks like hot chocolate to warm up on cool autumn days. Hatters Farm ensures you won't go hungry during your visit.

Pumpkin Cannon

Not to be missed is the incredible pumpkin cannon, a spectacle that will leave you amazed. Watch as pumpkins are launched high into the sky, reaching towering heights. It's an astonishing display of power and a unique experience that you won't find at any other pumpkin patch. There's freakishly fun face painting for the kids too!

Photo opportunities and Face Painting

As you explore Hatters Farm, make sure to capture the wonderful moments with your loved ones. The picturesque landscapes, charming wooden structures, and of course, the pumpkin patches provide endless photo opportunities. Snap away and create memories that will last a lifetime.

To make your visit even more convenient, Hatters Farm offers time slots to ensure everyone has plenty of time to explore and enjoy all the farm has to offer. It's a thoughtful touch that allows for a relaxed and enjoyable experience for all visitors.

So if you're looking for a family-friendly farm experience that goes beyond just picking pumpkins, Hatters Farm is the place to be. With its picturesque location, wide variety of pumpkins, fun activities, and delicious food, it's the perfect spot to create unforgettable memories and embrace the spirit of autumn!
