Come to Country Pumpkins by Rita Kay Aldridge

 

COME TO COUNTRY PUMPKINS!

Come to Country Pumpkins where lasting memories are made!
Sit on the deck beneath the trees  and enjoy respite in the shade!

Take a hayride or a train ride,
whichever one you choose!
Or simply do both!  Now what have you got to lose?

Jump in the cotton wagon!  Be sure to pack it down!
Remember to keep the cotton INSIDE the wagon, not out on the ground!

On Saturdays, the R.I.D.E.S. ponies are ready to take you for a ride!
Afterwards, you might enjoy sliding on our cotton picker slide!

Our concession stand is open each and every day of the week.
Stop and enjoy a refreshing drink and something good to eat!

Celebrate a birthday under a tent with your loved ones, young or old.
Fond memories will be made whether you're one or 101 years old!

Walk through our corn maze!  Now don't get lost!
Play inside the corn box or try our pumpkin chunkin' toss!

Enjoy a bonfire with your group on a crisp, autumn night,
Roasting marshmallows and hot dogs that turn out just right!

Don't forget to take your picture by "How Tall this Fall?"
It's fun to see how much you've changed since visiting us last fall!

We must give a shout out to Chief Watch The Patch, our wooden Indian man!
Since 2000, he's been steadfastly watching over our Country Pumpkins stand!

Take a picture with Chief  Watch The Patch if you please!
Just remember he's watching over the patch so don't ask him to say,
"Cheese!"

Pick out some pumpkins, gourds or cushaws at the end of your day
To decorate your festive table on Thanksgiving Day!

At Country Pumpkins, we are thankful to our Heavenly Father up above
For lasting memories filled with joy, fun, and lots and lots of love!

Memories made at Country Pumpkins will last your whole life through,
And we are so very thankful for this opportunity to share fond memories
with you!

So come to Country Pumpkins for a fun-filled day with your friends!
You see, at Country Pumpkins, the fun never, ever ends!

Farm Tours

Opening Day for Country Pumpkins will be September 16, 2017. We are excited to offer farm tours this year! Take a ride with Reagan through Pine Meadows’ 170 acre loblolly pine plantation. Enjoy a mile long journey through a scenic canopied trail to the farm’s southern boundary. The tour turns west for five-eighths of a mile and then heads back to the pumpkin patch via the fire lanes. Be on the lookout for wildlife!

Photography Workshop at Country Pumpkins

Come out to Country Pumpkins on Saturday, Oct. 1st to attend a photography workshop by Tim Thompson! At the workshop you will learn how to take photos that tell a story. Get people to wonder and think about what’s going on. Kind of a street photography style without the street! 

Bring your cameras and get ready to have fun and learn at the same time! The cost of the workshop is $25.00 per person, cash or check payable to Tim Thompson. It will start at 9am and we will meet at the new deck in the back near the trees. All skill levels and camera types are welcome, whether DSLR, point and shoot or phone. Again, it’s Oct. 1st at 9am at Country Pumpkins 860 Spruill Rd in Caledonia. Looking forward to seeing you there!

Opening Day is this Saturday Sept. 17th!

The 2016 season will officially kick off this Saturday Sept. 17th from 8am-6pm. Come out with your family and enjoy a fun hay ride around the farm, the four-acre corn maze and the barrel train rides. There is also a free playground with tons of fun activities for the family. We will have beautiful pumpkins, gourds, squash and more for all your Fall décor needs. Don’t forget to stop by the concession stand for a stadium hot dog or grilled burger and enjoy the view from our beautiful wooden deck by the pond. We look forward to seeing ya’ll at the farm!

New Pet Policy

As we strive to keep our patch a beautiful place for families to enjoy, we unfortunately have to make a change to our pet policy. Due to owners not cleaning up after their pets, we now have to discourage pets from visiting the farm. Thank you for understanding and helping us keep our patch clean for everyone to enjoy!

Check out what’s NEW at Country Pumpkins this year!

Country Pumpkins will kick off the 2014 season this Saturday September 20th! We are excited to offer a new attraction for the playground this year, the cotton picker slide! Kids and adults will enjoy this new slide that is built inside an actual cotton picker! Also, this year we have built a beautiful new deck in the pine trees overlooking the playground area. This additional space will provide seating for up to 100 people. Hope to see you at the patch!
