We get a lot of questions. Here are your answers!
Q: Do you grow the pumpkins at the farm?
A: We don't. Unfortunately, pumpkins don't grow well on our land, but we're lucky to know great Virginia farmers who provide us with pumpkins.
Q: What are the pumpkin patch's hours?
A: The pumpkin patch will be open October 10th through the 19th, Wednesday — Saturday from 10:00 am — 8:30 pm, and Sunday from 10:00 am — 2:00 pm.
Q: What else can I do at Congaree and Penn?
A: There’s a whole farm to enjoy. Sip some cider (or beer and wine), enjoy a farm tour (Fridays and Sundays at 10:30 am), let the kids run free, take your dog on a walk, take yourself on a walk, and savor the outdoors.
Q: Do you accept credit cards?
A: Of course; we live in 2018, too.
Q: Do you take reservations?
A: We do not.
Q: Can I bring my dog?
A: Of course! Well behaved dogs on leashes are always welcome. Please clean up after Fido (and take the droppings with you, even if you've used a biodegradable bag), and please keep your canine companions away from the chickens and goats.
Q: Do I need to worry about snakes and alligators (and lions and tigers and bears) at the farm?
A: Not really. We've never seen an alligator at the farm. We haven't seen a snake in over a year. The wildest thing you'll likely see is our rooster (steer clear). But the great outdoors is full of surprises.
