This weekend we are closing out our 9th season of the Pumpkin Hunt. We're excited to finish this season with a bang - or a band! The Soulphonics and Patty Finney to be exact.Come out on Sunday to the Rockin' Pumpkin Finale for live music, fall games, wagon rides and a great cause. Half of the proceeds of ticket sales on Sunday will benefit the Dell Children's Hospital. It's free admission and you can pick and choose which fall games you want to play ($2 a ticket).
1 p.m. - Farm opens and fall games begin
2 p.m. - The Soulphonics play
3 p.m. - Patty Finney plays
5 p.m. - Pumpkin Hunt officially ends for 2009
* - Don't forget it's day light savings. So make sure to set your clocks back an hour!
We love dogs at Evergreen Farms (as long as they're on a leash). And dogs love being out at the farm too. The fresh air, all the new smells and of course getting to visit with the donkey and goats. It's a fun, yet exhausting time for them. So after they leave the farm dog tired, go home and make them some pumpkin doggie treats! Perfect for this time of year. One of our favorite food blogs - Delish - recently posted this recipe:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine all ingredients in a small bowl. Mix well. Scoop a teaspoon of dough and roll into a ball. If dough is too sticky, sprinkle with a little flour. Place balls on baking sheet and press flat with fork, criss-crossing horizontally and vertically until cookies are uniform in thickness. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown on the bottom. Let cool competely before giving to your dog.
After months of preparations to get the farm ready for the Pumpkin Hunt, it's nice to finally get to enjoy the fruits of our labor. The families this past weekend got to experience the farm with some of the best weather we've ever had during Pumpkin Hunt. We're hoping it's the same weather this coming weekend, too!
We may not have gigantic pumpkins that weights 1725 lbs like this couple in Ohio...but we do have plenty of pumpkins ready for your picking. The Pumpkin Hunt begins this Saturday and the weather is supposed to be beautiful. Come out and enjoy the fresh air of the country, explore the farm with your family and pick up a pumpkin or two.
