A visitor writes on September 22, 2009: "This was the first
farm I took my daughter too for fall fun. We loved it! Clean, great
selection of pumpkins, gourds, wonderful country market to get good
ol' fashioned produce, canned goods and pantry items. One of my
FAVORITE things about this farm...? The kettle corn! The smell of it
is intoxicating as you walk around the farm, and the authentic
kettle corn taste did not disappoint! We can't wait to go back this

A visitor writes on October 24, 2011: "Leed's was awesome! It was a short 30 minute trip from
Worthington. While I wasn't sure about the upfront cost, there was
so much to do we really felt we got our money's worth. Each fall
we've gone to a different farm. We've finally found one we're
excited about returning to annually. I would recommend Leed's to

(positive) "We went to
Circle S Farms last week and it was wonderful. They have a couple of
mazes, some animals, and a great little barn full of hay. The barn also
had slides coming down the hay, which my two year old daughter loved.
Many pumpkin patches that I have gone to the pumpkins are just placed in
a field, but these were still growing and attached, which I thought was
great. I would definitely recommend visiting (and the group rate is
cheaper if you are interested)"
Hoffman's Farm Market
- 800 Hilliard-Rome Road, Columbus, OH.
A visitor writes on
August 14, 2009: "I live near this farm so one day my husband and I
stopped by to get some apple cider. After that night I will never set
foot on that property again. Neither of us could leave the restroom. Do
not take your children there!"
A visitor writes on October 13, 2008: "I was
extremely disappointed by this farm and the pick-your-own pumpkin patch.
The property itself was not well taken care of. There was "stuff"
everywhere. From broken down farm equipment, to broken refrigerators and
old farm trucks. The hayride left much to be desired. The distance was
about 400 yards, lasted 10 minutes and included old tractors and
combines as its only scenery. The pumpkin patch was hardly that. It was
about 20 pumpkins randomly placed in a field. The pumpkins were already
cut off the vine and it didn't look like this was where the pumpkins
were even grown. The only animals to be seen on the entire farm were a
few pigs and they had an old tractor right in the middle of their pen.
We purchased our sad little pumpkins and thought we might check out the
produce building before we left, even though we were extremely
dissatisfied with the hayride and pumpkin patch experience. The produce
building/farmers market was not any better. The barn where all this was
set up was full of JUNK!!! Literally full of it. I think out of the
entire size of the barn, only about 25% was being used to sell produce,
ever though you could see the piles and piles of stuff everywhere. There
were lots of pumpkins and gourds to choose from but all the other
produce looked pretty terrible. I was really looking forward to a nice
fall day, with pumpkins and farm animals, and this place was AWFUL. I
would not recommend it to anyone. "
- Kuhlwein's Farm Market & Deli
- 1859 Walker Road, Hilliard, OH 43206.
A visitor writes on
October 02, 2011: "We took our 2 year old daughter for her first
pumpkin patch experience. Prices were very reasonable ( $8 a person
includes a pumpkin, and free under 3 years of age) We had an awesome
time playing in the dirt, and the workers were very friendly. We got
lost in the corn maze, walked around the pumpkin patch for 30 minutes
or so just exploring, the tractor driver told us to have fun and that
more tractors would come by to pick us up. Finished up with petting a
baby cow and some bunnies and splashing in mud puddles. The cider was
delicious and brought home a pumpkin roll too. We will definitely be
making this a yearly tradition."
A visitor writes on October 26,
2009: "My husband and I brought our three children with us to this
farm and we had a great time. The people who work there are friendly
and helpful and the kids loved it. They had plenty of pumpkins to pick
from in the field and the corn maze was the best part. The kids want
to come back again. They also have a concession stand that is
reasonably priced. Thank you Kuhlwein's for a wonderful experience. We
will definitely be back next year. "
A visitor writes on October 18, 2009:
"Great experience! Very organized. Lots of wagons so no waiting for
the hayride. Lots of nice pumpkins to pick from. Lots of activities
for kids. Will definitely do again next year!"
A visitor writes on October 18, 2008: "I
really loved this place!!! It is exactly what is says in the
description. It's not overpriced and my son had a blast. He can not stop
talking about it. The hay ride takes you out to the corn maze and once
you get through it, your in the pumpkin patch picking pumpkins. The
folks working out there were great too! "

A visitor writes on October
20, 2009: "It was a very nice small family farm/pumpkin patch
where you can either pick your own pumpkins or pick from their
already picked ones. It was real quaint, you just do your thing, get
what you want and leave your money in a can. So everybody be honest!
- Devine Farms - 672 National Road (US Route 40), Hebron, OH
A visitor writes on
October 01, 2011: "This was our first year taking the kids out there
and it was wonderful! We were very happy at how clean and tidy the farm
was, even in the rain. It was raining when we visited but other than
seeing the rain, the farm looked like it hadn't been touched by it. The
prices were very reasonable as well, I have a large family so I am
always money watching. We spent almost the same amount that another farm
was asking and got 4 more Pumpkins than what the other farm offered! The
rides were wonderful, my girls loved them and the paint your own
Pumpkin.The people there couldn't have been nicer, everyone made it a
point to smile. It really did make the atmosphere feel much more family
oriented and I loved that fact. Not to mention they actually spoke to
us, making us feel very welcome. They were not just standing there like
drones taking our money. It was an all around great family quality time.
The only thing that I was a tad bit disappointed in was the sandwich I
had bought, the bun was still partially frozen and there wasn't awhole
lot of meat. As for everyone elses food it was great! All around a great
farm and we will be attending again next year! Also, I would recommend a
large bottle of the Apple and Pumpkin butters, I assure small one is not

October 11, 2009: "We loved our visit there! We bought our daughter
an all day pass and she loved all the activities, we met grandparents
there and we all had a wonderful time. The area was very clean and the
staff members went above and beyond to provide friendly service and an
enjoyable experience. We were truly able to relax for the day and let
our daughter enjoy herself. "

every year at least once, usually more than that. Love it!"

A visitor writes on October 14, 2009: "Hi there, We went there
last week with my sons class and we had a great time. The kids got to
pick pumpkins, gourds, Indian corn, and apples. They also got a tour of
the apple warehouse and learned all about how the apples are prepared
for selling in our stores. All of the employees were very kind and
helpful. The tractor ride was awesome..they took the kids for a very
long ride. I understand that some of the activities were cancelled but
weather cannot be controlled. I would not hold this against the farm
because it is a very nice place to take the children. I would recommend
this farm to anyone who wants to take the kids out for a day of fun."

Family Market - 14080 State Route 23, Ashville, OH 43103.
A visitor writes on October
26, 2011: "I went to this farm last weekend with my daughters and other
family members that had traveled from out of town that day and we had bought
2 pumpkins, each for $15.00. Once we proceeded to carve the pumpkins both of
them were rotten on the inside. What a lousy ending to something that should
have been fun. We did not pick the pumpkins ourselves from the field but got
them from the market area. You would think that those pumpkins that cost
more would be better picked out. There went $30.00 down the drain. Never
going there again!!!"
- Jacquemin Farms - 7437 Hyland Croy Road, Plain City, OH
43064. Phone: 614-873-5725.
A visitor writes on October
18, 2015: "My son and I just came back from Jacquemin Fams.
Lynd's farm was out of pumpkins, and this farm still had some so we
thought we'd try it. I would NEVER go back. Ever. First, you have to
pay for a ride to the pumpkin patch, which is fine, but they drop
you off in the middle and never tell you they won't pick you up
unless you drag your pumpkin all the way to the same exact spot.
Their fields were filled with burdock plants that had the sharpest
spines you ever saw. When you pulled them out of your skin they drew
blood. I wonder how many children were hurt from those plants. They
didn't spray for any weeds at all. Organic is great until you have
plants that are dangerous and they are everywhere. When we picked
out our pumpkins, by the time we found good ones we were about 50
yards from the drop off point. But we figured that was OK because we
could carry them to the nearest path that the tractor drove on. But
NO. They drove right past us as we waited with our pumpkins because
we weren't at the drop off point. And they never told us that is
where we had to go. They never stopped to tell us anything. I could
not believe it. Why in the world would you have an entire 20 acre
pumpkin patch with only one drop off and pick up point for the
customers AND charge them a dollar per person to do this? Then we
went to pay, and we had to wait in 2 lines, one to weigh the pumpkin
(only one weigh station) and then a huge line to pay. Everyone was
tired and cranky from their long wait, and we had to keep dragging
the pumpkins with us. One single mom with 3 kids couldn't possible
carry hers so my son went to get a cart for her. No reason for this.
Then we get up there and the pumpkins are so expensive it was 2-3
times what Meijer charges but you can't do anything about it at this
point. The customer service at checkout was NASTY. They have young
girls who are stressed out, don't say thank you, happy to tell
people who want to buy a donut (only) that they have to go "ALL THE
WAY BACK TO THE END OF THE LINE... ALL THE WAY BACK....." Just to
get a flippin donut. Good job management! Then they charged me 53
dollars for 3 pumpkins, realized they didn't zero-out the previous
customer's bill, and never apologized for the error. When I pointed
out the error the girl said, oh do you still want the pumpkins? I'm
like, yes but I don't want to buy them for 53 dollars. Then she said
I KNOW, DO YOU STILL WANT THE PUMPKINS? At that point I calmly said
"hey, I used to work at a strawberry farm when I was about your age,
high school, and the first thing I learned was to be nice to the
customers. They are paying for the experience, not the pumpkins, and
they come here once a year. Even though you're only getting paid a
few bucks an hour, please remember to be nice to the customers." She
gave me dirty look. Then I tried to find the owner, but my son told
me it's not worth it. On my way out, I heard someone saying "ma'am"
and it was the owner's wife. She listened, said the thought she knew
who I was talking about and would talk to her. She never apologized.
I said I'd not be coming back and she said "well, that's your
choice!" instead of trying to make me feel better. I asked about the
donut situation and she said "Oh yes, if you want a donut you have
to go to the back of the line with all the people buying pumpkins."
I could NOT BELIEVE IT. So if you want a donut, it's not worth the
wait. This place is NOT what a small business should be run like.
Take my advice and go to Lynd's early in the season before they run
out of pumpkins. Or buy some for 4 bucks at Meijer's and hide them
in your back yard for the kids. I hope that you can post this
message to avoid other people having the same back experience."
A visitor writes on October 19, 2010: "This farm was
delightful. We wanted one where we got to go into the fields, so that
narrowed it down a bit, but they also had some by the main barn if you
wanted to just pick one without the walk. Playing in grain bins was
like sand boxes with a inch or so of whole corn kernels with pails,
shovels and trucks. Our three years old didn't want to leave. We went
on a week night and it was not crowded but enough new friends for the
kids to run around with. For it being a farm it was very clean. "
visitor writes on August 11, 2010: "We LOVE this farm for fall/pumpkin
patch! They are family owned farm with wonderful, helpful, friendly folks.
Very family/children friendly. We go every fall for the kid's hay maze and
blow up play area as well as the ride out to the pumpkin patch. The pumpkin
doughnuts a awesome and the prices are reasonable. We are a family with 5
children so price is important to us. We also go every year for strawberry
and raspberry picking, yummy. Give them a try - you won't be disappointed!"
