In 2004, my wife Olivia and I were blessed with the arrival of our beautiful daughter Trinity. When Trinity was 2 years old, I thought it would be a memorable idea to grow a pumpkin patch. We took a ride to the local hardware store, purchased a few packets of pumpkin seeds and planted a 30 X 30 garden. To our delight, the crop grew successfully. We picked pumpkins, took photos and admired the growth of our patch. That day, I decided we would expand our next patch and start an October Festival with our family and friends.
In 2007, we doubled our patch to 60 X 60 but we were unable to host our October Festival because Olivia and I were blessed with the arrival of our son, Liam.
In 2008, with the success of growing pumpkins two years prior, I planted pumpkins on 1-acre of land. We kicked off our October Festival with family and friends who enjoyed an exciting fall day. In 2009, I decided to branch off and plant a corn maze. This was a hit and became part of our annual October Festival. As you can imagine, as our family and friends grew, our October Festival has become larger and larger.
In 2012, I purchased Happy Day Farm and turned my success, love for growing pumpkins and passion for planting the earths fruit into a place for the community to enjoy. Make Happy Day Farm a part of your family tradition this season — a farm-centered experience where memories are made!
