Enjoy special appearances by actors, artists and more! Check back here as your visit to Keller's approaches to learn more about the fun and entertaining storytelling options available for you to enjoy as part of Keller's Fall Festivities this year!
Storytelling Mime Performances
This year, our children's mime performer, Jen Buhrow, will be at the farm on 9/16, 9/23 and 10/1 – for performances each day at 11am, noon, 1pm and 2pm. You won't want to miss this extraordinary artist – and your children will be captivated. They might even get to try miming for themselves!
Storytelling through Pumpkin Carving
We have a special guest appearance this year by an extraordinary pumpkin carver! Marc Solomon will be on the farm on 9/30, 10/8 and 10/14, from 11am to 1pm. He will be carving GIGANTIC pumpkins! This is pumpkin carving by a Michelangelo! If you've ever wondered how the best pumpkin carvings are made, then this is the day to come to the farm! And what's even better, you do not need a Fall Festivities ticket to enjoy this great event! Find him in the Pre-Picked Pumpkin Patch.
Storytelling through Face Painting
What child doesn't like to have their face painted! We have some of the best artists on hand every weekend during Fall Festivities to give your cheek a special look, or your forehead, or half your face – ask them about fun fall designs, farm designs, or just whatever your child happens to love. Look for our face painters in the Pre-Picked Pumpkin Patch, every afternoon on Saturdays and Sundays through October, from 1:30pm-4:30pm. Prices range from $5 to $20 per face (CASH ONLY please) – ask your artist for details! No Fall Festivities ticket is needed to enjoy the talents of our face painters!

Helpful Hints For Your Visit
- We are open rain or shine! Keller's Farmstand reserves the right to close outdoor activities due to inclement weather and reopen them when weather conditions are safe for visitors.
- Please be respectful of our corn maze. Stay on paths and leave the corn on the stalks. Our dad will be harvesting the corn once the maze closes at the end of the season. Thanks!
- Dress for the weather! If there is recent rain, wear old shoes or boots.
- Typically our corn maze takes about an hour to complete. Kindly begin your corn maze adventure no later than 5:00pm since we close at 6:00pm.
- Keep your pets at home. Thanks!
*If you get hungry while you are visiting us, we offer many concession stand items to choose from -- APPLE CIDER DONUTS, gourmet popcorn, hot dogs, chips, hot pretzels, nachos, hot & cold drinks, and fudge! NO OUTSIDE FOOD, DRINKS, OR COOLERS ALLOWED.
For everyone's safety, NO SMOKING or e-cigarettes allowed! You are welcome to smoke in your car.
The pumpkin patch register (near the corn maze for customers who pick pumpkins off the vine) is credit/debit only. Customers who want to pay cash may do so in the Farmstand.
During the summer, I earned a free Fall Festivities activity wristband coupon from my local library. How do I use it?
- No reservation is needed for a library coupon. Simply present the library coupon to the cashier at the ticket booth. If we are not at full capacity, we will hand you a free activity wristband. We are only accepting coupons issued during the current year.
