Welcome to Our Farm
This is the 2nd year for the pick your own pumpkin patch and we are excited to open up our farm to you and your family to enjoy the fruits of our labor (pun intended). We hope you enjoy your afternoon with us and make some great memories with your loved ones.

Joe & Karen
We want to make sure the kiddos have something to do so we will have the following activities during the festival:
- Clover & Riddle Maze: Make your way through our white clover maze as you find and solve riddles.
- Pumpkin Tic Tac Toe: Pull up a straw bale and battle the kids in a game of tic tac toe.
- Pumpkin Painting Station: Let the kids paint an ornamental pumpkin or one they pick from the field. The paint is non-toxic & washable. We will also have inexpensive stick-on kits for purchase for the parents who prefer their kids to stay paint free.
- "Grow with Us" Photo Op: Take a picture in front of our "Grow with JK Orchard & Farm" sign to track the kiddos growth from year to year as you visit the farm.
- Face Painting: Have the kiddos get their faces painted with fall inspired art. There is a small nominal fee.

Where is the farm located?
1345 Lutz Rd. Lima, OH 45801
DO NOT TRUST GOOGLE MAPS... it takes you to our neigherbors 3 houses to the East (to the right for those of your directionally challenged). This is the house you are looking for.
Is there off street parking?
Yes, there is parking in grassy areas behind the orchard. In the event of a lot of rain the fevtival maybe cancelled due to risk of cars getting stuck.
Is there a public restroom?
Yes, a port-a-john.
Do you accept credit cards?
Yes. Providing the Internet cooperates that day. There is a $10 minimum and a $0.50 card convenience fee. Cash is the preferred method of payment. We do not accept personal checks.
How long will you have Pumpkins this year?
We sold out the 1st day last year so I would say just the festival weekend.
How much are the Pumpkins?
XLarge .................. $8.00
Specialty ..............$3.00 to $8.00
Are your pumpkins organic?
While we do our best to use only organic practices we are not certified organic. Pumpkins are susceptible to powdery mildew which cannot always be controlled by organic practices once PM becomes established a conventional fungicide has to be applied for control. We are working on a better IMP to prevent PM from happening so we don't have to use a conventional fungicide and can keep everything organic. The good news is with pumpkins, like oranges and bananas, you don't eat the skin so being organic is less of a concern as apposed to strawberries.
