Hopkinsville Pumpkin Patch Opening @ Christian Way Farm
Sep 12 @ 10:00 am – 8:30 pm

Christian Way Farm  announces that fall pumpkin patch activities are set to begin on Saturday, September 12. While school has just started and summer weather is here to stay a bit longer, Christian Way Farm & Mini Golf is looking ahead to cooler days on the farm and is now scheduling group trips and events. Also beginning September 12, Christian Way Farm will open the pumpkin patch and corn maze daily Monday through Saturday from 10 AM to dark. The mini golf course has extended hours under the lights. Visit www.christianwayfarm.com for specific closing hours.

Groups visiting Christian Way Farm this fall will experience an education about how the pumpkins grow, learn to shell and grind corn that they will then get to feed to the animals, and will be taken by tractor wagon ride to the corn maze and pumpkin patch. Adults with groups and walk in guests may purchase pumpkins picked from the patch or from around the barn. Group tours are scheduled and guided. Individuals visiting the farm will have a similar experience on the farm but at their own pace.

For more information, visit the Christian Way Farm & Mini Golf Facebook page for updates, news and special discounts as they’re available. Visit the Christian Way Farm & Mini Golf website for hours of operation and pricing information.
