It’s that time of year again! Cory Holman’s Pumpkin Patch is now open, and they have a ton of pumpkins, gourds, squash, cornstalks and other fall goodies. And by “ton,” I mean at least a literal ton or two or three.
I stopped by there on Sunday and took a few pics of the Holman Crew bringing the pumpkins in (Thanks, Georgia, for alerting me!). Is there any happier place than a pumpkin patch? I think not.

The Holman farm has a very long history on the Old Mission Peninsula, which you can read more about here, and Cory and his wife Elise are carrying on the tradition of farming on the Old Mission Peninsula – which is so awesome. Here’s Elise at the pumpkin patch. She is such a sweetie!
Cory Holman’s Pumpkin Patch is located at 12926 Center Road on the Old Mission Peninsula, about a half-mile north of Island View Road. If you have questions, feel free to call (231) 492-9019, and be sure and “like” their Facebook page here.
There will be cider and doughnuts at the patch on Saturday, Sept. 26.
Also, if you’re in the village of Old Mission, be sure and stop by Cory and Elise’s farm stand at 4309 Grand Street, between Brinkman Road and Traverse Street (the Old Mission Post Office and Legion Hall are located on Traverse Street). Read more about their fabulous farm stand here.
Here are a few more pics of the pumpkins and crew setting up the patch on Sunday.
A NOTE FROM JANE: I started Old Mission Gazette in 2015 because I felt a calling to provide the Old Mission Peninsula community with local news. After decades of writing for newspapers like the New York Times and Los Angeles Times, and magazines like Family Circle and Ladies' Home Journal, I really just wanted to write about my own community where I grew up on a cherry farm and raised my own family. So of course, I started my own newspaper. Because the Gazette is mainly reader-supported, I hope you'll consider tossing a few bucks my way if I mention your event, your business, your organization or your news item, or if you simply love reading about what's happening on the Old Mission Peninsula.
