Fall Festival and Pumpkin Patch

Fall Field Trips!

Nickajack Farms Fall Festival & Pumpkin Patch

Nickajack Farms is an operational farm, farming over 500 acres. We are very proud to farm and love to celebrate the harvest with you! In addition to the Fall Fest and the Pumpkin Patch, we offer Field Trips, Tours, Birthday Parties and group events outside our normal Fall Fest & Pumpkin Patch  times.

Pumpkin Patch

Pick your own pumpkin is back! Take a train ride out or walk out to the field to pick your pumpkin or choose one of the pre-picked pumpkins out of our picking area. We also carry mums, corn stalks, straw, indoor/outdoor fall décor and more.

Stop in on the weekends and eat lunch with us at the Farmers Café . Before you head out play a quick game of pumpkin bowling or run through the straw path. If you are looking for even more fun head into the Mane Barn to purchase admission for Fall Fest! Stop by the corn cannons or paint ball gallery and let off some steam!

The Market in The Mane Barn– Find beautiful décor and farm and country themed items and fresh home-style goodies. The Market is also where you will purchase your goods grown on the farm, decorative corn, pumpkins, gourds, and honey from the bees enlisted to pollinate the pumpkins. Local is the flavor of The Market offering local baked goods and fresh chocolates.
