Although it may be more pricey than most pumpkin farms, if you're willing to spend the money it's an amazingly fun experience!

When I was a kid Howell's was always a tradition, I hadn't been back in awhile and was shocked at the prices. 17 dollars to get the wrist band, but most of the attractions were still quite expensive (i understand this is to limit people from doing that one thing all day long, but still). The price of pumpkins was... More

Howell Family Pumpkin farm is a well organized adventure for family. There are many activities here including the corn maze, pumpkin-saurus, and all sorts of things to discover. There are hay rides, and animatronic shows (the owner has built and designed all the animatronic displays). They even have pig races - which don't harm the pigs in any way. ITs... More

Paid the extra money for wrist bands for my 8 and 6 year olds. No mention of age restrictions was made to myself when purchasing these bands. Turns out that a few of the attractions need to have adult accompaniment and the adult needs to purchase the wrist band. No sorry, no trying to realize when I brought his up... More

It would be more advicseable if the Howells did not charge for the senior adults who do not take advantage of the "childrens' " activities. The children enjoy the tricycle ride, pumpkin toss, jumping pit, sandbox, duck race and many ore activities. Hence the howlling! The adults are there to supervise and purchase the pumpkin treats and the various squashes... More

OMG we went as a family and went on a Tuesday where the price had been less expensive. Never ever will I recommend nor ever go back. EVERYTHING cost money. Although you pay an entrance fee of $17.00 a person!!!! which includes entrance ONLY!!! so for $17.00 you get absolutely nothing except entrance. The hay ride alone was $3.00 per... More

This was the first year our family visited Howells, and on an overall we were definitly impressed with the offering! The Adventure Pass was worth every penny even with four of us and allowed us to have hours of fun inside with our kids. The scenery is beautiful and it is not hard by any means to pass a day...

This is good for kids and adults. It generally runs during part of September and all of October until Halloween. There are lot's of activities, little rides, a haunted barn, displays, food, puppet shows, and so on. They have a good display of artistically carved pumpkins, and yes you can buy pumpkins too. The attractions change a little every year... More
