While you are there, take a hay ride out to the 15 acre pumpkin patch, check out the “Critter Corral”, navigate the kid’s patch just next to the petting zoo and stop by their farm market store for even more delicious goodies to take home. Freshly picked vegetables and a plethora of their own fruit preserves, pickles, sauces, & healthy snacks and even an old-fashioned candy counter. Tuken’s will begin harvesting their pumpkins at the beginning of September. All pumpkins (pick your own or pre-picked) are priced by weight. Wagons are available free of charge.

    What I am looking for is a farm that has giant pumpkins?? As a child, my father would take my sister and I to pick out the biggest pumpkin we could find at a local pumpkin farm that grew giant pumpkins. We would often come home with a pumpkin between 200 and 300 lbs!! This is a tradition I want to continue with my boys. I need suggestions though for farms in Cincinnati area that have them! Help!!

      I was just at Neltner’s Farm this past weekend and they had some big ones… not sure they were THAT big, but I wouldn’t have been able to carry them!
