The pumpkin patch and maze are open every weekend in October. Guests can jump around on the playground, get lost in the mini maze, and view the majesty of nature at the animal barnyard. Additional activities include hayrides, a cow train, horse rides, fish and turtle feeding, and a scarecrow factory, which supplies the materials for guests to make their own scarecrow.
The ninth generation to cultivate the 300-acre farm, Helen Legare Floyd, Linda Legare Berry, and Thomas S. Legare continue the agricultural legacy started by their ancestor Solomon Legare in 1725. The kin raise hormone- and antibiotic-free Black Angus and hereford cattle, hormone-free chickens, and fine-heritage pigs such as yorkshire and hampshire. Concerning the plant kingdom, their fields yield chemical- and pesticide-free vegetables. They round out their output with homemade jams, jellies, pickles, and salsas, making their food available through a co-op program, whose proceeds help fund seed, fertilizer, and water for the next season. Beef, pork, and eggs are also offered for sale.
Food aside, the family shares its farm's resources by inviting visitors onto the grounds for numerous events throughout the year. A fall festival in October includes a 10-acre hedge maze, horse rides, and a scarecrow factory where guests can create a scarecrow. The farm hosts historical reenactments of the Battle of Charleston in March, three-hour hayride and bonfire excursions in November through March, and educational programs for youngsters including chick rentals for the classroom. Other agritourism offerings include summer camp, bonfires, birthday parties, and field trips.
