Harvest Pumpkin Hunts!
Great fun for families ....and BIRTHDAY PARTIES! (OR A PARTY FOR ANY OTHER FUN-LOVING GROUPS IN YOUR LIFE)
A favourite annual memory maker for the 8 and under crowd!
Book your Birthday Party! ....check out ticket availability, then follow the link on that page to purchase your tickets, with the option of also booking the Tipi, and ordering pizza. Please remember tickets are non-refundable, so only lock in the number of tickets you know you'll use for sure. We can usually add one or two more children to a hunt at the last minute if one of your adults is happy to walk alongside the big wagon rather than riding on it.
Do children who are not-yet-able to walk need a ticket? Only if they are wanting/needing a pumpkin.
Be sure to dress for the weather. And... wear something ORANGE to celebrate the spectacular fall season!
Timing?? ....we see most folks spend 1.5 to 2 hours total with us during the fall hunts....the hunt and decorating usually take 40 - 50 minutes, and then whatever time you'd like to spend in the farmyard visiting with the critters.
You MUST be here at least 15 minutes before your hunt so we have everyone together and the hunts can run on time.
The tipi can be booked in 1 hour blocks for parties.
