Bring your leftover jack-o-lantern to our smashin’ session and let it fly!    The Silo Drop and the  Zip Wire Sploosh let you do the smashin’ yourself or bring your pumpkin the Pumpkin Drop Zone and add it to our upside down “fireworks display” as the pumpkins are dropped from a 40ft lift.  You will be sure to love giving your pumpkin one final ride.   What happens to all those smashed pumpkins… the pigs and cows love to eat them and we compost the rest.

Lucky Duck Giant Pumpkin Drop:  Join us for the GIANT DUCK Drop to support Boulder Crest Retreat for Wounded Warriors at 2pm on Sunday, November 1, 2015.  Purchase a duck in our Farm Market all season long and and then watch the giant pumpkin drop into a pool of ducks.  They will splash out and those landing on prize spaces will win prizes from our local community.

uIn 2014 we raised $4,000.00 for Boulder Crest and we want to double that number in 2015!  Check out this video of 2014 and join us for a bigger and better drop in 2015!  We are seeking sponsors NOW!  Become apart of this amazing cause and support our Wounded Warriors.

We did it!  Thanks to the farm engineering skills of Farmers Scott and Mark and the skillful Crane Driving from H&M Crane,  the Lucky Duck Giant Pumpkin Drop was a huge success!  Despite the windy day we made a big splash!!  We drew the winning lucky ducks in the Farm Market with the help of Boulder Crest’s Amy Petit because the wind was too heavy to keep the ducks contained on the pond.  Congratuations to all our winners!
