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’ stations and let it fly November 2-5, 2019!

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

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