Book Now – for Teachers and Young Learners
Now through Nov 5, 2017

Spookley the Square Pumpkin is a square pumpkin who lives in a round pumpkin patch world. The Legend of Spookley the Square Pumpkin, available as both a book and movie, delivers a message of tolerance and kindness in a fun, accessible format that is easily grasped by young students. By making these advanced concepts easily understood by early learners, teachers can help stop bullying before it begins.

This online toolkit includes resources educators can use to effectively present The Legend of Spookley the Square Pumpkin as a multi-subject learning opportunity. The core elements of the online toolkit involve a reading of the book supplemented by downloadable lesson plans and other activities that teach bullying prevention and character values.

 We prohibit strollers in the orchard area and pumpkin patch. This is a working farm and the ground is too irregular to permit the safe use of a stroller in the field. As a result, we cannot allow strollers (even collapsed & folded)  to accompany small children on the hayride wagon. Thank you for your understanding. | Please know that we cannot allow dogs (leashed or otherwise) to accompany you on our farm
(except service dogs). Thank you.
