Pumpkin Chunkin’


This event has passed, but check out our calendar for fun today, this week, this month!


Bring your leftover jack-o-lanterns to Great Country Farms’ smashin’ session and let it fly November 3-6, 2018!

The Silo Drop and the Zip Wire Sploosh let you do the smashin’ yourself, or bring your pumpkin the Pumpkin Drop Zone and add it to their upside down “fireworks display” as the pumpkins are dropped from a 40-foot lift! You’ll be sure to love giving your pumpkin one final ride!

The Chunkin’ event schedule:

Wagon rides: 10:15 am-4 pm
Pumpkin Drop Zone: 12 pm, 2 pm, & 4 pm
Live music: 11 am-4 pm

What happens to all those smashed pumpkins? Great Country Farms’ pigs and cows love to eat them, and many are composted, too.

Admission to Pumpkin Chunkin’ also includes visits with plenty of furry, feathered, and hoofed favorites, including cows, chickens, pigs, and miniature horses. Enjoy playing on rope swings or a giant jumping pillow, zooming down giant tube slides, playing a round of putt-putt, enjoying a country hayride, and much more!

Great Country Farms is located at 18780 Foggy Bottom Rd., Bluemont, VA 20135.
