Perry Farms: Unfortunately, this once priceless family experience now has a hefty price tag! I haveRead More been coming to this family pumpkin patch since a child myself, so I knew once it was time to take my own children, Perry Farms would be the place. It has changed! This year, for the first time, they decided to charge an entrance fee - when your entire family comes to be a part of a special memory, it adds up! The least they could do, is take it off the price of a purchased pumpkin, but they don't do that. Do you know they even charge you if your pumpkin has a stem? Yup, that pumpkin with a STEM costs an extra $2.00!!! I thought pumpkins were supposed to have stems! The quality and quantity of pumpkins this year was really poor! And for the first time ever, there were cardboard boxes full of pumpkins like you see at the grocery store. I keep thinking, this just isn't right - did they supplement their stock with outside pumpkins - because the ones we saw were either rotten, dented, had holes in them, crushed, etc. not the Perry Farms quality I grew up with. Very disappointed! We will be finding another patch to frequent next year for sure! They have lost this lifetime customer with their overpriced and poor quality pumpkin patch experience!
