Plenty of Pumpkins at Geisler Farms
There are plenty of large, carvable pumpkins available for purchase at Geisler Farms. The patch is now open on weekdays from 4:00 - 6:00 p.m., weather permitting.
Celebrate the Fall Season With a Visit to Our Pumpkin Patch
It’s pumpkin season at Growing Family Fun. We have plenty of our farm-grown pumpkins of all sizes to select. In particular, there are some dandy 20- to 40-pound pumpkins available in the patch. In addition, we have corn shocks, straw, winter squash, Indian corn, ear corn and other fall decorations for sale. There is no admission to purchase pumpkins.
Come visit and take a picture next to the area’s biggest pumpkin. It stands eight feet tall. The fiberglass pumpkin was created by a company in Wisconsin.
Now Open on Friday Nights
If the weekend is too busy, perhaps you can visit the corn maze on a Friday night. The farm will take maze admissions from 5 p.m. up until 7 p.m. on Friday nights beginning Oct. 2nd. Our pumpkin patch, not the maze, will be open on weeknights unless it is raining from 4 – 6 p.m. from Oct. 2 through Oct. 30.
Open Columbus Day
Geisler Farms has special hours on Columbus Day, Oct. 12. The farm and pumpkin patch will be open between 1:00 and 6:00 p.m.
