To Guard the Pumpkin Patch
September 21 - October 31
It takes 200 Scarecrows to return to the farm for their annual reunion to stand guard along the lane as the team of Belgians and hay wagon haul kids to the Pumpkin Patch during Fall Harvest Days at Amish Acres. 
Lining the lane, these creative creations come from far and wide as individuals, families, friends and groups of all kinds compete for $850.00 in cash prizes. Winners are selected by the votes of the visitors, so tell all of your friends to come and vote.

Get your group together and bring your scariest creations to the historic farm on September 21 through October 27, scare off the crows and compete for cash.

Calling all Churches, Service Clubs, Schools, Scouts, Libraries, Families, Girlfriends, Senior Centers, Day Care, Bowling Leagues, Euchre and Bridge groups, Music and Sports Boosters, Company and Office Departments, Sunday School Classes and Neighbors to create the scarecrows. It's a haunting task, but worth the time and toil for your good cause and reward to your group. 

All scarecrows must be self standing, life size, and resilient with all accessories securely attached as they will remain outside through the end of Fall Harvest Days.
