Pumpkin Festival at Bates Nut Farm


I've been visiting the pumpkin patch at Bates Nut farm for decades now, but this will be the very first year that I'm participating! Cheryl's Caramels will be located at booth 41 for the entire weekend of fun!

Check out the eighty artisans selling American handmade crafts and fine art at the “Pumpkin Festival” Arts ‘n Crafts Fair. Admire and shop for beautiful jewelry, woodworking, candles, toys and many other unique items. Bates’ famous Pumpkin Patch will be open so you can enjoy the fall decorations, tractor hayrides, straw maze, Snows Pony Rides, petting corral, and delicious food from a variety of vendors.

Start your fall mornings at Bates Nut Farm with the Lion’s Club Pancake Breakfast from 7-10 a.m. each day. Enjoy all-you-can-eat pancakes, eggs, bacon, sausage, coffee and orange juice and all proceeds benefit local charities.

Free admission. $5.00 parking on October weekends.
