All winning scarecrows become the property of Bates Nut Farm and will be added to our famous scarecrow collection.

Cash prizes and gift certificates will be awarded to the top entries in each category. Click here to download an Entry Form or you can pick one up at the Bates office.

All of the Pumpkin Patch festivities will continue throughout the weekend including the tractor hayrides, straw maze, pony rides, and food.
