CORE Charter School


Bishop's Pumpkin Farm

In 1973, Bill and Sandy Bishop planted the first pumpkins and invited local schools to come visit the farm. Since then the Bishops have added delicious homemade foods, authentic farm fun, and the largest U-Pick pumpkin field in the world. 

A day at the farm can start with a made-from-scratch Pumpkin Apple Muffin, a visit to Weeland Petting Zoo to pet the goats, a trip on the BPF Line, and a pig show. It can then continue with a hayride to the pumpkin field to search for the perfect pumpkin.

You can possibly get lost in the Corn Maze or take a spin on Charlie’s Carousel (extra cost, not included). 

A good day at the farm should be complete with dirt in your shoes and hay in your hair!
