We are a family based business that originally started raising pumpkins to shield our nursery trees from a drought that was effecting our watersupply here in Canon about 14 years ago. Diana was allowed to keep the profits from the sell of these pumpkins for her band expenses and thus, the name Diana’s Pumpkin Patch was born. We soon realized that there was a need for pumpkins in our area and we started expanding. The corn maze was started 11 years ago to help families spend a little more “Family Time” on the farm. The Maze is really a big draw for our farm and it is a challenging part of the farm. The ability to raise such tall corn ever year on minimum space and very limited water is a genuine credit to Tim. He is the true farmer of this operation. Jimmy, our son, is his right hand when work needs to be done in the field. We are both proud of his equipment skills and willingness to help with the farm. I am Sue, the mom of this operation. I suppose the Maze ideas are mine and the love of variety in planting, when it comes to pumpkins. Once we realized the Maze and pumpkins went together well we expanded and Diana’s education was our goal. We have not been able to fund her entire education, but all of our efforts have helped support her dreams of a college education. We are proud of what she has accomplished. We have made your Fall Fun a very big part of our lives and we hope to do this for a very long time. Come out and see us, we would love to meet you!

2011 was a good year for the wheat that is planted for the pumpkins to be put on, Jimmy used his swather to cut it before we started the season.

Sometimes the wheat gets too tall so Jim brings his swather over to cut it for us.
