Grand Opening!

What a fabulous day for visiting Hickory Creek Farms this afternoon! Folks galloped on over!

The ducks fairly flew threw their races, along with the pigs and the chickens!Folks dove right in to having fun!

What fun wondering the patch looking for the perfect pumpkin!
An exciting ride on the Hickory Creek Express was just the ticket!
Can't even remember the last time I went on a hayride!

Can't wait to go back to Hickory Creek Farms!!! Maybe tomorrow! :)

Hen Party

What's up chickie? Hope you're planning to come see us this Fall in the Critter Corral at Hickory Creek Farms - right next to the pumpkin patch! You might even see us sprinting around the race track a time or two! Sometimes we get a little distracted, what with the grasshoppers and all. But whatever! We're gonna have a ball! :)

Our Winner!

A big congratulations goes to Dwayne Smith, the winner of our guess-the-pumpkin contest! He guessed our peanut covered pumpkin to be a Warren Old English Airloom. Our seed packet called it Galeaux d'Eysines. In checking it out on the internet, I'd say they look exactly alike. So, Dwayne you're our winner and one FREE admission ticket to Family Fun Days at Hickory Creek Farms is yours! Can't wait to see you and your family this Fall!

And speaking of winners! Our little piggies are really doing great in their training! They've taken to racing like a "pig to mud". :) You've got to see them!

Preparations for your visit this Fall continue! The Hickory Creek Express is out of the barn loft and has a fresh coat of paint. Won't your kids love it!!!

The question everyone's asking us after our LONG, hot, dry summer is... "Do you have any pumpkins?" I just took a walk out in the patch and snapped a few pictures. We've got orange ones great for carving! Can't you just see that smiling face sitting on your front porch?

And we've got weird ones! The first one to tell me what this variety is called gets a FREE admission to Hickory Creek Farms Family Fun Days!

We've got flat ones!

And we've got ghostly white ones!

Hope you've got us on your schedule for a visit! We open Saturday, September 24th and will be here with LOTS of fun stuff for the whole family every Saturday and Sunday afternoon through October!
