Our annual Pumpkin Festival is truly something to write home about! We are celebrating our 31st anniversary during the 2022 season and are making sure this will be a year to remember. Attracting folks from miles around, we bring out the best of the farm during our traditional pumpkin harvest. While our pumpkin patch is the star of the show, we offer six weekends jam-packed with activities, music, food, and fun you won’t want to miss.

Enjoy fall festivities at Sinkland and our Pumpkin Festival unlike any other! Listen to live music, explore local vendors, or tour our grounds on horseback (or ponyback!). Even the pickiest eaters will find something to sink their teeth into. Taste authentic southern barbeque, kettle corn, hand-dipped ice cream, and more. Grown-ups will enjoy a sampling of local beer and wine. Finding a one-of-a-kind souvenir is simple, but getting out of the corn maze is no easy feat!

Hayrides to a 10-acre pumpkin patch, make your way through a mind boggling corn maze, and visit with Sinkland's farm animals. On weekends we feature horseback trail rides, pony rides, a huge kid’s zone with a barrel train ride, giant slide, kids zip line and many games. Lots of entertainment and local live music while sipping beer and wine on the terrace. You can watch pig racing, try your luck at our famous Bad AXE Throw and enjoy local food trucks. Sinkland Farms will also host some of the best bands in the area.

Look For The Scarecrow

Scarecrow wows the crowd by standing or sitting motionless making people think he’s just a regular old scarecrow until he says “Howdy” or gives a friendly wave.
