Pumpkin Patches, Corn Mazes & Fall EventsLooking to pick your own pumpkin this year? Or maybe you've finally mustered up the courage to head to a haunted house? Have no fear, we've compiled it all here for you.
As stated on their website, "From 2007-2017 the farm transformed into "Scary Dairy" hosting a haunted hayride and in the later years a haunted walking trail. After 10 fun and thrilling years the ghosts and goblins have left the property and the Harris family can't be thankful enough to all the visitors and support they had. "We are sad to disappoint those that made it an annual tradition to come visit or work with us. We enjoyed putting on the family fun event in the fall for 10 years, but all good things have to come to an end. Everyone is always welcome to visit our farm, it just won't be scary anymore," says farmer Joe Harris who turned 70 this year."
