Pumpkin Patch 2016


Painted Oaks Academy is a Private Equestrian Boarding and Training Facility that offers many services all year long, for both children and adults. But, in October we open our private property to the public for the Pumpkin Patch, and weekend WWP Fundraiser. I have see the same local families come every year and watch their kids grow larger each holiday, thank you for for stopping by and making this event as fun as it now has become.

Several people asked me how this whole thing got stated, so let me try and explain:

I have lived in Orlando for many years but, I am originally from Wisconsin “Amish Country”. Now that I have two young boys of my own I wanted to get out in October to visit a Pumpkin Patch here in Orlando. I was very disappointment to find the absence of any decent Pumpkin Patches or Fall Festivals for my family, only Gory, Headless tourist events. October was always my favorite time of the year to get out and enjoy the cool weather. So, about 6 Years ago we set up our own Pumpkin Patch here at Painted Oaks Ranch under the oak trees for our kids, friends and family. It was enjoyed by everyone so much, that we decided open our ranch to the public every year in October for our Pumpkin Patch to have a place for local families, like yours and mine, to come enjoy our facility and spend some precious family time with your kids picking out that “Perfect” Pumpkin. Come make some memories and take a few pictures before the new “Mega” Lake Pickett North and Lake Pickett South Developments Pave over Rural East Orange County.

I will have my Restored 1925 Ford Model T Fire Chiefs Car this year available for Photographs along with some of the Winter Park Model T and Model A Car Clubs Cars coming out for this years event,,, Ahh-OO-Ga!20160307_180033
