Carolyn's Country Cousins Pumpkin Patch
For more than 20 years, Carolyn and Buddy Raasch have been coaxing plump pumpkins out of the soil of their 80-acre working farm and sharing the harvest with guests. Visitors can hop aboard the hayride and meander through the 50 acres of pumpkin patch, seeking out the perfect gourd for jack-o'-lantern features or fitting atop a middle-school principal's head. Rabbits, goats, peacocks, and mules extend heads and paws for a good scratching at the petting farm, and speedy swine entertain onlookers during Uncle Lester's pig races. After skirting down giant slides and navigating a mind-bending bale maze, pintsize patrons can foster fall-time creativity by crafting scarecrows and enrolling them in art school.
Families can celebrate fall weekends with the hard-rock anthems of Cousin Herald and his music show. To take a taste of the farm home with them, guests can swing by the country store to pick up fresh produce, cookbooks, and household items, or stop at the Red Barn Cafe to enjoy cider slush and homemade fudge or sample fine wines.
