Calling all Scarecrow Makers and Tractor Owners!

Fall is definitely in the air – football is officially underway, pumpkin patches are popping up, corn mazes are getting ready to open for the season, and Josh and his staff and volunteers are busy changing over some of the gardens for the season.

Our Fabulous Fall at Wellfield kicks off next weekend with our Antique Farm and Garden Equipment Extravaganza, Scarecrow Contest and Scarecrow Picnic!

We are still looking for some Antique Tractor and Garden equipment! If you are interested in showing off your collection in our Antique Farm and Garden Equipment Extravaganza, please contact Josh Steffen at 574-266-2006 or email him at

We are in need of scarecrows for our contest! If you, your business or school group, church group or non-profit would like to enter our Scarecrow Contest, please check out this info Wellfield Scarecrow-contest-rules 2017.docx. (NOTE: Non-profit registration fees are being waived, please call to register.) You can register online by clicking HERE, or by calling or stopping by the Visitor’s Cottage 574-266-2006. We’ve got some great prizes lined up!

Our Scarecrow Picnic was so much fun last year! Here’s your chance to bring the family out and play some games while enjoying live music, bring your own picnic and enjoy the beauty of the Gardens. More information, including the registration link and pictures from last year’s event, can be found HERE.

See you in the Gardens!
