When you carve a pumpkin, you make something that was originally cheerful stare back at you with bared fangs and evil eyes, much like when you hand out toothbrushes to trick-or-treaters. Carve out some fall-frolicking time with today's Groupon to Stingy Jack's Pumpkin Patch, located at the Mountains and Meadows Farm and Event Center at Turkey Pen in Pisgah Forest. Choose between the following options:

Stingy Jack's Pumpkin Patch festival delivers fall fun with activities such as a corn maze, hayrides, and walking trails illuminated by carved pumpkins, along with live entertainment and vendors. Guests can hop on the complimentary trolley that leads from the parking lot to the event center to lose themselves and codependent shadows within the rows of a corn maze. Hayrides cart families around stylishly, and the wares and foodstuffs of local artists and vendors sate eyes with chainsaw art and jewelry while filling stomachs with blackened chicken, custard, and funnel cakes (for an additional fee). As evening falls, foursomes can meander along illuminated trails, chatting and gathering tattoo ideas as they admire more than a thousand hand-carved pumpkins lighting the path. Nightly storytelling and musical entertainment from local bands begins at 6 p.m. every evening, including performances by storyteller and chainsaw artist Mountain Dan.

A portion of Stingy Jack's ticket sales is donated to Bread of Life, a food bank and free community kitchen in downtown Brevard. Peruse a list of frequently asked questions for more information, or check out the visitor's guide for out-of-towners and extraterrestrials.

Stingy Jack's Pumpkin Patch

When the sun sets over the Pisgah National Forest, the gourds lining Stingy’s Illuminated Pumpkin Trails begin to glow. Its more than 1,000 craft pumpkins—hand carved by local artists—display scenes such as rainforests, pirates, and mythical creatures. Before nightfall, however, Stingy Jack's Pumpkin Patch entices guests with myriad other autumnal attractions. The forest beckons guests to explore its spooky trail on foot or via hayride, a hay-bale maze challenges them twists and turns, and a human hamster wheel welcomes sprint sessions, all of which are carefully monitored by a staff of giant scientists.

Throughout the day, dance groups command the stage while local vendors hawk their wares and munchies, and Stingy Jack's Pumpkin Patch personnel sell pumpkins grown by local farmers. Along with pumpkins for purchase, Stingy’s Ultimate Pumpkin Chunker hurtles them into the woods in a grand spectacle all night once the pumpkin trail lights up.

Customer Reviews

This was our first visit and we really enjoyed it. was happy to see the artificial pumpkins strictly because we weren't able to go till the last weekend and we were afraid it would be falling apart. Enjoyed the music and food vendors and kids activities. My kids loved hearing the legend and seeing the horses on the hayride (they're 4 and 7) Maybe you could add some take-away activities or crafts for the kids? we loved it and will definately go next year
