Grand opening of Schappacher Farms

WILMINGTON — The Wilmington-Clinton County Chamber of Commerce recently held a ribbon-cutting ceremony celebrating the opening of Schappacher Farms at 3068 W. SR 73 in Wilmington.

Schappacher Farms is a family-owned operation based on 50 acres in Wilmington. They provide pick-your-own pumpkins, free hayrides, corn maze, Thanksgiving turkeys, group tours and more — they love to open their farm to customers and visitors throughout the year not only to provide food products but agricultural education.

They say, “We love to see new and old faces and allow customers to put a farmers face to the products they eat, and ask questions! We pride ourselves in our fresh products, animal care and customer service as well as allowing visitors to have affordable food and family fun while still keeping the family farm atmosphere we love.”

Fall activities include: Pick-your-own-pumpkin off the vine; free hayrides to the Pumpkin Patch (only on Saturday and Sunday, weather permitting); free corn maze; farm animal visits; Timmy the Train (operates Saturdays and Sundays; $2/ticket); and other kids’ activities. photo
