Island Farm c.1847 is hosting their first pumpkin patch every weekend this month, celebrating old school Halloween with a hayride, corn husk doll making, and scarecrow stuffing for the whole family.
Saturdays in October, Island Farm on Roanoke Island invites you to take an ox-drawn wagon ride to the farm’s pumpkin patch and find the perfect future jack-o-lantern to take home.
The pumpkin patch is open this Saturday, Oct. 20, and next Saturday, Oct. 27, from 10:30am to 12:30pm and again from 1:30 to 3:30pm both days.
Admission is $6 for adults and children ages 5 and under are free. You can take home a pumpkin for an additional $4.
Other activities at the pumpkin patch include creating your own corn husk doll, candle making, children’s 19th-century toys and games, stuffing and taking photos with a scarecrow, and interacting with the farm’s animals.
Those who wear a Halloween costume on the last day of the event, October 27, will receive a surprise.
Island Farm opens at 10am and closes at 4pm.
