Adventure farm on Lake Pfäffikon

Pumpkin festival on the Juckerhof farm

Fall is pumpkin season on the Juckerhof farm. Under this year’s motto «music», huge figures made out of pumpkins and different pumpkin varieties are on display. Other season highlights are the pumpkin-based cuisine at the restaurant and the different varieties of pumpkins that are for sale.

On arrival, visitors are truly in for a treat: a stunning picture-book view awaits along with a playground paradise for the kids. The huge hay bale bouncy castle is perfect for letting off steam, and the goats are patiently waiting in the park for someone to come and pet them. Why not discover the Apple Labyrinth, a maze made of countless apple trees? Or why not visit the pumpkin show? Open daily from September to the end of October.

If you had enough of pumpkins, the farm restaurant, located in the former barn, serves vermicelles, a sweet chestnut-based dessert that looks like noodles, and Halloween jam cookies. The farm shop is a great place to buy a souvenir after a great day out, whether it be homemade jam, syrup, bread made at the farm bakery – or a pumpkin, of course!
