French Prairie Gardens is owned and operated by the Pohlschneider Family. It started as a roadside stand in 1987. Today, our 500-acre farm grows grass seed, wheat, clover, and hazelnuts. We also have many acres of fruit orchards and berry fields. The produce from these fields are sold in our market. The farm also includes a farm store, bakery, and garden center.
When fall comes around, our farm in transformed into a festive pumpkin patch. In addition to pumpkins, we also have a bunch of family fun activities, such as animal feeding, giant slides, a corn maze, a hay maze, and a farm ninja challenge. But the event that keeps people talking is our famous Pigtucky Derby, our famous pig races! Our pumpkin patch events take place over four extended weekends in October.
We can't wait to have you at French Prairie Gardens!
