Preserve Produce Partake
Homesteaded in 1859
straight line
From selective seed collection to careful cultivation to culinary rewards, The 200 Acres encompasses the growing experience from start to finish. The Great Pumpkin Patch and The Homestead Bakery provide a dynamic and immersive view into the entire process. Since 1859, the McDonald-Condill family has curated a culture of diversity and land stewardship. In 1989, this family farm started growing pumpkins and inviting guests to experience the harvest season on a working farm, connecting them to the land and each other. The family, now in its sixth generation, has grown up to 63 acres of pumpkins, squash and gourds, been involved in commercial pumpkin production and worked to preserve heirloom cucurbit seeds. The evolution continued in 2006, when the made-from-scratch bakery opened its doors.
