It’s a list of never-ending fall fun at Hee Haw Farms with a corn maze, petting farm, hayrides, pumpkin patch, silo slide, haunted hayride and more farmin’ fun.
Before things get messy at the Giant Pumpkin Drop on Oct. 24, Hee Haw Farms has a pick-your-own pumpkin patch and a pumpkin weigh off.
The weigh off is on Saturday, Oct. 10 at noon. If you think you have a pumpkin that can tip the balance in your favor, enter your pumpkin at utahpumpkingrowers.com and email Chalise at email@example.com. The first place winner receives $1,000 and there are monetary prizes through sixth place; seventh to 10th place wins a Hee Haw Farms family season pass.
“I can’t believe how this farms grows every year,” said Steve Aten, a longtime attendee. “From the new addition of the silo slide and pumpkin bowling to all of the regular activities, there is something for everyone. I love to gather my family here and watch my grandkids enjoy the fall festivities. If I had one complaint, it would be there is too much to do and I have to follow the grandkids in too many directions. “
Part of the $6 general admission is the bi-weekly Trick-or-Treat Hayride. On Saturdays from 12 p.m.– 3 p.m. and on Mondays from 5 p.m.– 7 p.m. grab your candy bag, climb in the wagon and prepare for costumed friends to throw treats into the wagon as you ride.
If you are looking for something a little less pumpkin related and are a little more gutsy, the Haunted Hayride is the scary solution you’ve been looking for. After the sun goes down, climb into Hee Haws wagon and take a chilling ride through their 155-year-old barnyard which will have you end your haunted adventure to brave a walk through haunted corn. It is only $5 added onto general admission. Beware: This ride isn’t for the faint of heart — it’s recommended for teens and children who aren’t easily startled. The Haunted Hayride spooks on Mondays, Friday and Saturdays through October.
Speaking about guts — or more specifically pumpkin guts — be sure to save the date for the annual Giant Pumpkin Drop on Oct. 24. Your jaw will drop as pumpkins demonstrate the laws of gravity dropping over 16,000 pounds of pumpkins on a target. Not only is this event wildly entertaining, but it is Hee Haw Farms way of giving back; the money raised at the Giant Pumpkin Drop is donated to the March of Dimes! A Dime a Pound for Babies. The drop begins at noon and ends at dusk.
Watch this and you won’t want to miss the drop!
