    October 21, 2007: A visitor comments that "FYI, while the people are SUPER nice at Ward's Farm in Ridgewood NJ, it's really more like pumpkins for sale on the side of the highway.  There is no corn maze and the "petting zoo" is 2 goats. Again, the people are great, the pumpkins are nice.  But, it's definitely not a "farm" that you'd make a special trip to - like we did :)  "

    A visitor writes on October 27, 2010: "We chose to go to the Alstede Farm in Morris county and it was a great choice. Very affordable and they had a lot for the kids to do and my kids are toddlers. While my kids were too small for some things, they had a tractor pulled hayride for all, child-size wagon ride, pumpkin patches, pony rides, food, hay tunnels, hay stacks to climb on, and moon bounce. I'm probably forgetting some things I saw there. The people working there were very friendly and patient. Large crowd but lines moved well. Lots of space to just play around - my kids had fun just running up and down a hill! They also fed farm animals. We had a blast there and spent most of the day there, which was far longer than I expected. Worth the hour drive there. Highly recommended farm! "

    "We had a great time at Conklin Farm. It had all the amenities of the big farms out west without having to travel so far. Everything seemed well kept and everyone was really friendly. We look forward to going back this year. "
    A visitor writes on October 23, 2009:
    "While, I like Conklin Farm, be prepared to spend a lot of money. Everything costs money separately. It cost $4.00 for per face paint and the girl just air brushed a small stencil on their faces. The entire bottle of paint she used probably costs less than $4.00. It was $2.00 per person just to enter the corn maze which was not well maintained. The hay ride was a waste because it just brought you to one end of the farm and back, we were on it for less than 5 minutes. Next year, I will do a bit more research and find a farm that does not charge for everything like that. Between 3 pumpkins, snack, 1 Mum, and doing all the activities for 3 people, I spent close to $100.00 that day."

    A visitor writes on October 18, 2010: "My family of four wanted to visit a Pumpkin Patch this weekend and weren't sure where to go, so I stumbled upon your site and after reading through the great list of Farms in New Jersey, we visited Wightman's Farm yesterday (10/17/10). We had a good time, there is no entrance fee, however, you do need a membership to enter the fields to pick pumpkins and apples. We did not purchase a membership, but there are other areas for non-membership persons to pick apples and pumpkins off the ground. They are good apples and pumpkins, but the pumpkins are not large at all. 2010 fees for apples are $1.19 per pound and for pumpkins $0.59 cents per pound. If you want to enter the mazes areas, you need a wrist band for that as well. The mazes were pretty cool, they have rope maze with a bell in the center, a stone maze that is pretty cool, a paver maze that you should only make right hand turns to get to the center and the corn field maze is the hardest of all, you definitely get lost if you don't have the map and you need to reach the center to get to the flag. For people that might have an issue with claustrophobia, please do not enter the corn field maze as it will certainly trigger the anxiety after a while and that wouldn't be a good thing. There is an $8.00 per person fee for the Tractor Hayride which includes a free small to medium sized pumpkin. There is an area in front of the store where you can choose and buy pumpkins and flowers and if you go into the store, they have tons of fresh produce, apple cider, a large variety of jams and jellies and lots of other great grocery items for purchase, some at decent prices. I did feel that they were short staffed and they do have a "Hiring" Sign on the door to the store. This place is large and can be a great day out for family and friends. It is packed though, so keep your kids in sight. They really do need to hire more employees, because there really is no direction. You can't tell who is an employee and who isn't, unless they are behind a register and those people are so busy you really don't want to start asking them questions and causing more craziness with the lines. There is a kiosk in front of the Cider Mill where you need to purchase the wrist bands and tickets to enter the hayrides and mazes and the line was so long, that it wasn't worth the worth, after that line you have to wait on even longer line to get on the hayride. People that did not have wrist bands were enter the maze area because no one was monitoring the entrance. So there are some positives and negatives, but overall, we had a good time and bought lots of stuff; sweet corn, candle apples, pumpkins, apples, jellies and jams. If you want to do everything, i.e., hayride and mazes, get there early and plan to spend time and money and someone does answer the phone, so feel free to call them to ask anything I haven't covered. BTW parking isn't an issue either. Oh, and thank you for your Website!"
    A visitor writes (September 17, 2007): "Wightman's charges $11 per family (up to 5) entrance fee. Then you pay for the apples, peaches per pound ($1.09 this weekend). They have a hayride $8 (or $7 with the $11 ticket), maze extra ticket..."
    A visitor writes on October 27, 2008: "I went there with my family and friends and we had a blast. For $8 each we went on a fun hayride to the pumpkin patch (even though you can just walk there) through the orchards and then you also receive 1 pumkin per person. The people there were really nice and there were loads of fun things to do for all the kids ages 1-5. Plus the market food was delicious. I highly recommend this farm!"
