On Oct. 4, the Schopfs and staff at the Dairy View Country Store invite everyone to the second annual Pink Pumpkins for Cancer Festival and Corn Maze Walk. It’s a full day of family fun with pony rides, face painting, tractor rides and a chance to win cash by guessing the weight of the Great Pumpkin in a 50/50 raffle. Here’s an opportunity to help in the fight against cancer and take home one of Door County’s only crop of natural, pink-colored pumpkins.
“This spring we planted hundreds of special pink pumpkin seeds along with our traditional varieties of orange pumpkins and gourds in the Dairy View patch to sell on this special day as a fundraiser for cancer research,” says Roxanne Schopf.
The day starts off with a corn maze walk for cancer research. Adults can register to walk for $25 ($15 for youth walkers), with all walkers getting a souvenir T-shirt and goodie bag. All proceeds go to Door CANcer. Register in advance at dairyview.com. Maze walkers will huddle up at 9 am on Saturday and depart at 9:15. Walkers can also register on the day of the event beginning at 8:30 am.
The Modern Day Drifters will play classic country tunes from 11 am – 3 pm and there will be lots of delicious food and drink available all day. The petting zoo and 30-acre Corn Maze with three games spanning more than 10 miles of trails will also be open as usual from 10 am – 6 pm.
Schopf Family Farm and Dairy View Country Store is located on County Road I, just east of Carlsville. For more information visit dairyview.com or call 920.743.9779.
