Pumpkin Paradise, LLC began in 2002 when the Steve Weidner family decided to expand Steve's pumpkin-growing hobby into a pick-your-own pumpkin patch and corn maze open to the public. The patch has grown from a half-acre pumpkin patch and a half-acre maze in 2002 to 12 acres of pumpkins and produce and a 4-acre maze in 2018. Steve, who is also a fourth-generation full time farmer, is always enthusiastic (some say obsessive!) about any project he undertakes. He spends most of the year researching pumpkin varieties and ordering every type of seed he can find, so that now he plants over 200 varieties of pumpkins, gourds, and squash each year! Steve designs the maze himself and puts it in by hand. He tries to add a new attraction every year, because we aren't just selling pumpkins - we're selling fun!
