About The Farm
Studt’s Family History
Studt’s original pumpkin patch was started over 30 years ago by Ward’s parents, Jeep and Priscilla Studt. They were farmers and grew a wide variety of vegetables and crops including pumpkins. Visitors came to the farm to pick and purchase the bright orange beauties. They instilled a love for farming in their son Ward. Later, Jeep and Priscilla moved on to other things, but Ward remembered the pumpkin patch. Almost 15 years ago, Ward re-opened the pumpkin patch for the community. A you-pick event for young and old. Soon, he added a corn maze. A few years later, Ward and Jennifer began dating and decided to run a bigger and better pumpkin patch together. Many of the familiar things visitors see today such as the Giant Slide, Hay Mountain, and the Dark Acres Haunted Maze were begun that year. By the end of their first year’s business adventure, the two had fallen in love with one another and were a few months later married. They primarily farm and ranch throughout the year with grain crops and a few thousand head of sheep. They have been blessed with two children and the whole family has a special place in their heart’s for the one month out of the year they get to share a sliver of their rural life with the community.
