Pumpkin Patch, Pig Races, Mazes & More!

September 27th - October 31st

The crisp fall air signals it is time for a little Farm Family Fun at French Prairie Gardens and Family Farm's Pumpkin Patch!

During this 5 week event, people travel from all over to enjoy a day out in the country and have the opportunity to enjoy one of the main attractions - Pigtucky Derby! We have many fun new additions this year to help make your fall trip even better!

Visit us opening weekend for our Fight For Your Life 5k, 9/28/14, for a Fun Run to help raise awareness and to support women’s rare cancers! Run, walk or crawl, we’d love to have them all! A flat course, on all dirt roads. Money raised goes towards Em’s Fight, a foundation formed in memory of Emily Pohlschneider-Edwards. More information at FightForYourLife5k.com.

NEW THIS YEAR: Free Admission and free parking on Weekends!*
