Flinging Machines

Watch the pumpkins fly!

It's A Beautiful Day To Shoot Our Cannons!

We have a real variety of pumpkin flinging machines here at the farm. Each weekend in October demonstrations are held every hour on the hour from 11AM to 4PM. It’s an experience you won’t want to miss!

Our machines: Check Out These Pumpkin Cannons!

The Cannon
We have two different pumpkin cannons. They are both run on hydraulics and can shoot a pumpkin up to 400 feet away!
Introducing Our Newest Addition: The Pumpkin Popper!

The Trebuchet
Trebuchets are awesome machines and we think that if not everyone can have one of their own, they should at least be able to experience one first hand. We built our counterweight trebuchet right here on the farm in 2001 and have been shooting it ever since. Trebuchets are an interesting example of engineering from the Middle Ages. We do not use this trebuchet as a weapon though, we shoot it simply for entertainment! Our staff will ready the machine for you, but let you set it in motion by pulling the rope that releases the tension. It’s a real thrill!

The Corn Cannons
The corn cannons are another farm built toy for you to enjoy. Shoot corn on the cob out into our field with these hand directed cannons. Our staff will load up the cannon for you, but you get to do all the aiming and firing that you desire! We have even put some old cars and targets out in the field for you to aim at!

Ready! Aim! Fire!

Are you up for the challenge?
