Warren, RI, September 27, 2012 — Fall is a lot of fun at Frerichs Farm with activities every weekend during our Pumpkin Palooza and with the event that gives Warren, Rhode Island national attention — the SNGPG Annual Pumpkin Weigh-Off.
SNGPG Annual Pumpkin Weigh-Off

Frerichs Farm is known for its giant pumpkins! We’ve made national news! Who would have thought that Warren, the smallest town in the smallest state, would be known for something so large?

Magic Pumpkin Coach & Snap the Dragon
Pick your mode of transportation and take a ride around our farm—choose from the Pumpkin Coach or Snap the Dragon!
Have a grand time panning for farmer’s gold, going to jail, hanging your hat in the saloon and then stop to rob the bank — in any order you prefer.
Make Your Own Scarecrow
We supply the hay and little items to create the body — just bring some old clothes, crazy hats or whatever else your imagination and back of your closets can conjure up.
Play in the Hay!
Kids can climb all around in it and go crazy. They can even try to find the “needle” in the hay stack!
Come, sit around the table and paint your pumpkin how you please — scary face, happy face, no face but a pretty fall scene. You’re limited only by your imagination (and your artistic ability).
Charlie Brown’s Pumpkin Patch
Take your picture with Charlie Brown and his friends as you stroll through the patch to find that perfect pumpkin.
Ride the Witch Broom
Another great photo opportunity for the little ones.
“Although the farm offers something special during every season, fall is really our favorite,” says Barbara Frerichs. “There are many families that look forward to our fall activities as much as we do!”
Frerichs Farm will be open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. during their Pumpkin Palooza and the Pumpkin Weigh-Off.
