Updates for November 2020

Most pumpkin patches  and corn mazes usually open by mid September, some earlier! You may also like a local zombie event or Zombie Paintball!. The world's best pumpkin pie recipe is here, and the pie crust recipe is here! And we have home canning, preserving, drying and freezing directions. You can access many pumpkin and other recipes and other resources from the drop down menus at the top of the page or the site search.

Keep in mind, many farms, pumpkin patches, corn mazes and Haunted Houses are trying to cope with rapidly changing state COVID requirements: ALWAYS see their own website, Facebook page or call them before you go.

NOTE: Many of the farms are dropping their websites and switching to Facebook pages - but they don't tell anyone, including search engines like Google, Bing, Yahoo or us, or redirect their website,  thus breaking all links to them. If a link is broken please click the "click here to report a broken link or blank page" so we can find the replacement link! Thanks!

After Halloween, find a Christmas tree at a local Christmas tree farm (and enjoy a bonfire, smore, hot chocolate and free hayrides, and often Santa visits!

    A visitor writes on October 09, 2010: "I have gone here a few times, with the "Vernon Moms Group" and I have loved it every time. It doesn't have as much "glam" as Davison Orchards in Vernon BC, but it was still an enjoyable time. There is also, just down the road from this place, a "Kids Haunted Barn!" I've been here once, and it was awesome! Same road, a ways down, but it was a lot of fun.. They add to there decorations every year, they don't take them down. It's really worth checking out... They certainly have a huge field with a variety. And they have haybales and places to take pictures in their front yard."
