We hosted The Great Pumpkin Run on Saturday, September 16, 2017 at our Oswego Farm! Wow – 2,946 runners participated! Please scroll down for 2017 photos!

The Great Pumpkin Run celebrates everything that is great about fall with a healthy dose of physical activity! Run or walk this 5K path through the apple orchard, pumpkin patch, and corn maze on our farm! (These paths are not paved because, well, it’s a farm!) Think you’re tough?

  • Commemorative bib
