Why Saturday is Extra Fun
Saturdays are popular at Tate Farms because special activities are added to the everyday fun! You'll find face painting and the pumpkin cannon (men can’t resist the lure of watching the pumpkin cannon shoot 3-5 pound pumpkins a quarter of mile across the field). Additional specialty foods are offered like fresh squeezed lemonade, funnel cakes and cotton candy.

Weekday hours are 2:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m.
