Working with an honor system, customers can choose and purchase the fresh produce offered paying in cash, by check, or scanning the Venmo app that is available. In the early fall, festivities come to life and the site becomes an attraction that will delight the entire family. Starting mid-September, 46 varieties of pumpkins will be for sale, a corn maze will be ready to explore and perhaps get lost in, hayrides are available for the taking, and antique tractors will be on display!
