A visitor writes on October 14, 2010: "Well, we have been to this pumpkin patch many times in past years. We always LOVED it, but this year it has become so "commercialized" (I guess that's the word) and family UNfriendly that we've decided to find another pumpkin patch to bring our children to in the future. Despite the fact that EVEN THO they take debit/credit cards, they made you use an ATM (extra fees) to buy tickets for the attractions (also you are nickle and dimed)...and aside from the fact that the teenage employees have undesirable attitudes toward you and YOUR kids, and the fact that the hayride is merely a series of advertisements for other businesses... we found out that IF YOU PAY AND GO INTO any of the attractions, but have to go out because the children need to use the ONE restroom they are equipped with, you must PAY for re-entry. When we spoke to the owner about this, her response was "Well, if we don't do that, they'll NEVER leave." If they are suppose to be a family place, why the hurry to get rid of the customers??? It's just a VERY unpleasant place now. I would NOT recommend this patch."
