Warm our hearts. October 16-22, 2017

I’m sure you realized you needed a warm jacket this morning as you were getting ready for the pumpkin patch. Let us guess..it didn’t fit, right? Bring that gently worn coat, gloves, hats, and other winter apparel to the Farm and help the children in our community who have many things to worry about, a coat shouldn’t be one of them.

Best Pumpkin Farm in Nebraska! My son loved going there! There's many fun activities for the children and the food is great! I love there popcorn, caramel apples, and best of all their funnel cakes topped with fruit jams!! There's no place like

A beautiful facility! The outdoor environment was even more beautiful. The service was excellent from the staff.

Took both of my boys(4yrs old and a 15 month old) yesterday along with my husband and we had such a blast. There was something for all of us to do, from playing in the corn and duck races. I was so happy that my whole family could enjoy the pumpkin patch. And my kids also picked some small pumpkins that were just their size.

We went yesterday (Saturday) when there was no Husker game. I had been previously with our daughter, but only during the week, not on the weekend. We were pleasantly surprised at how quickly the line to get in moved, and how relatively short the lines for the attractions were given how busy it was.
