Pumpkins & Seasonal Events

What is it about fall that makes us think orange!

Although First Light Farm is a fairly small farm, our pumpkin wpid-img_20141102_111256421_hdr.jpgpatch is always full of pumpkins of all sizes and shapes. We can assure you and your family will have a special time walking the fields, finding the PERFECT pumpkin, and enjoying the beauty of the open spaces. As the fall season gets closer, we often offer special activities for families so check with us on Facebook for the latest updates. September is the start of Pumpkin Season!
