It’s officially fall, and probably our favorite time of year!
Halloween, cool weather, crunchy leaves and pumpkin flavored everything. It’s all right up our alley!
We also love a good pumpkin patch.
Wargo’s Pumpkin patch is a great place to go for free fall family fun.
Corey and Monica Wargofcak live on the family farm that has been passed down through generations.
They always wanted a fun place to take their kids in the fall to celebrate the autumn season.
As a service to the community, they decided to open their property to visitors each October.
The endeavor begins as a family affair way before the air gets that telltale crisp. In early June, the family sows a variety of pumpkin seeds in their fields. The pumpkins are tended until early October when they are harvested. This is a labor-intensive process as it is all done by hand.
In addition to a large variety of pumpkins, Wargo’s offers a range of delicious fair food and fun activities for the kids like painting, a small petting zoo and hayrides.
The animals in the petting zoo are the family’s goats and chickens. Monica laughs as she describes to us how friendly the chickens are. Apparently, they get lots of love from the Wargofcak kids and they eat up the attention. For those who can’t get enough of local markets, there will also be handmade items for sale from local artisans and crafters.
Adam’s Honey will also be back. This is an award winning local honey brand that is delicious!
Wargo's will open October first and be open every weekend of October and admission, parking, hayrides, painting and the petting zoo are all completely free.
The pumpkins are all for sale, but the Wargofcak's choose a different charity each year and donate the proceeds. Grantville is a short drive from Newnan and the Wargo’s signs are everywhere showing the way to the farm. For more details, check out the Wargo’s Facebook page.
Happy fall! If you make it to Wargo’s, we would love to see your photos and hear about your experience!
