Sonny Acres Farm

Prices are the same as last year, with pumpkins costing 35 cents a pound. "We're holding the line on all prices because of the recession," said Feltes. "That's for everything: sweet corn, Christmas trees." The pumpkins are a bit small this year in comparison to past years. Feltes said extra-large pumpkins that should weigh 35 pounds weigh about 10 pounds less. But the pumpkins are in abundance, with workers hauling in 30 tons in a two-day period. Open 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays, 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday. No admission fee, no parking fee. Tickets must be bought for attractions and concessions.
