"Thank you so much for a wonderful field trip! Our class visited you last week, and had a wonderful time learning all about pumpkins and farm animals. We also enjoyed our hayride! Your staff was so friendly, knowledgeable and cheerful, and really helped to make sure that we enjoyed our visit. This was by far the best pumpkin patch we've ever seen. We can hardly wait to visit you again next year! Keep up the great work, and thanks again for a wonderful field trip."
