By GRAHAM BROOKS / Staff Writer

HELENA–Griffin Farms of Helena, which has become a fun and unique spot to host birthday parties, wedding receptions, baby showers, corporate events and more, has just announced a brand new addition coming to the farm this fall.

In just a few years, the Griffin family went from hosting a birthday party for a family member on the farm, to now booking numerous parties each weekend and turning the farm into a full-blown business.

The Griffin family farm consists of roughly 160 acres located off Shelby County 17 in Helena, and beginning Sunday, Oct. 1, the farm will have a pumpkin patch with loads of entertainment for everyone.

The pumpkin patch will be open every weekend during the month of October with an admission fee of $10.

The pumpkin patch will be open on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. and Sundays from noon to 6:30 p.m.

The $10 admission will include hayrides, a tire mountain, rope climbs and tire swings, hay maze and obstacles, petting zoo access, land slides, corn barn and silo playhouses.

Additional activities will include pony rides, Bouncin’ B’s bounce house, a trampoline bungee jump, craft vendors the weekend of Oct. 7, food trucks and Charlie Choo Choo train rides.

Live music will also be played at the pumpkin patch every weekend.
