Frequently Asked Questions
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS - The Pumpkin Patch
WHAT KIND OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT?
We accept cash, a good check, and we NOW ACCEPT credit or debit card.
DO YOU CHARGE ADMISSION?
Nope! You are welcome to come to the farm without charge. However, to keep admission free, we have to sell lots of pumpkins! So give in to your inner child and go a little overboard out in the patch!
DO YOU HAVE WAGONS THAT PEOPLE CAN USE WHILE VISITING THE FARM?
Yes! We have wagons that will help you bring in your selection of pumpkins, gourds and squash. However, on a busy day they may all be in the patch. You are welcome to bring your own wagon or stroller for the kids.
ARE YOU OPEN DURING THE WEEK?
Just Fridays and on weekends. We apologize if that is an inconvenience for you but its one of the things we do to try and make sure that we run the patch and it does not end up running us.
ARE YOU OPEN ON RAINY DAYS?
We will plan to be open as long as the conditions in the patch allow. Please call to be sure or check our Facebook page for up-to-date weather info. We can not allow you to be out in the patch during lightning.
DO YOU HAVE RESTROOMS?
We have handicapped accessible port-a-johns on site for your convenience.
IS THE FARM WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBLE?
We have closer parking for those in a wheelchair or who have trouble getting around. Let us know and you can park closer to the display area near the big red barn driveway. We also have a handicapped accessible port-a-john on site.
The pumpkin patch has been tilled before planting and is covered in vines and the path is uneven and bumpy. It is not well suited for the unsteady walker. If you have trouble, feel free to buy from the great selection in our pumpkins, gourds and squash already picked.
DO YOU OFFER BULK DISCOUNT OR WHOLESALE PRICES?
We do not sell our produce wholesale nor do we take orders or hold product.
ARE YOU ORGANIC?
No, we are not organic. However, we do take very seriously the when, why and what we are spraying for.
DO YOU HAVE EDIBLE PUMPKINS AND SQUASH?
Yes! We have pumpkins perfect for making pies. We also have a wide selection of squash for eating, from the traditional acorn squash & butternut squash to unique delicious varieties of blue doll, sun spot and delicata (looks like a pickle and tastes like buttery potatoes).
HOW SHOULD I STORE MY PUMPKINS?
If you'd like to keep your produce all winter long, they need to be stored in a cool, dry place (like a heated garage, basement or even your pantry). If your pumpkins get frozen they will begin to go bad. Eat those first!
DO YOU OFFER FIELD TRIPS?
You may contact Christie directly to find out more information. or call 217-416-0839
ARE DOGS ALLOWED?
No. For the safety of our animals and yours, please do NOT bring your dog or other pets (other than seeing eye dogs) to Greene Fields Farm. We have shaded parking areas, you are welcome to leave your furry friend in your vehicle and park in the shade during your visit to our farm.
