Pick Your Own Pumpkins
Pack your picnic lunch and put on your best farm clothes and come out to Shlagel Farms for some good old fashioned fall fun! Hop on the tractor and take a ride down to the pumpkin patch where you can pick your own pumpkins. Take as much time as you like scouting for that perfect pumpkin and when you are done, spend some time making a scarecrow or visiting the petting zoo or enjoying some of the other fun activities they have in store for you.
While there is a small fee for the pumpkins (49 center/pound), there is nothing like a pumpkin pie baked from freshly made pumpkin. I have been buying fresh pumpkins for years so that my mom can cook them down and baked the freshest pumpkin pies ever. If you have never had a pie made with fresh pumpkin, click here for instructions on how you can wow your own family!
No Tricks, Just Treats
Shlagel farms is all about clean fall fun so you won’t find any scary props or decorations to scare any of the little ones here. The corn box is full and the straw maze is stacked and ready for your children to enjoy. If you bring your own clothes, Shlagel Farms will provide all the straw you need to make the scarecrow of your dreams. Don’t miss the fun over at the petting zoo where kids of all ages can enjoy some furry fun!
Insider Tips to Shlagel Farms
Bring your picnic lunch: You can easily spend hours at a pumpkin patch with all the entertainment that is included here. Picnic tables are available so feel free to bring your lunch so you can take your time and enjoy your day. This year, the “Milkshake Trailer” is available which will be serving light refreshments.
Bring your camera: This is one of those events that you will want to have plenty of pictures to enjoy. Bring your camera to make sure you are ready for them!
Wear shoes that you don’t mind getting dirty: This is a farm which means there is dirt. If it has been raining the ground may not have hardened back up. Just be prepared.
Leave the stroller in the car: While strollers are necessary, they are not very compatible on a farm. This is a pumpkin patch without paved sidewalks. Try to bring some other mobile device to help you with the younger children.
