About the ScareCrow Patch

the Horaks
Gene & Sheila Horak
Proprietors

Back in 1985, we decided to move to the country to raise our three little girls. So we bought our farm. In 1988, we were blessed again with twin boys. Gene grew up just east of St. Libory. His family was one of the first to grow and sale melons around St. Libory.

In 2001, our brother-in-law gave us the idea about opening up a pumpkin patch, so we did and called it The Scarecrow Patch. There wasn't anything like this in the area at the time. We had all of these buildings on this place, so we slowly put them to good use. Our pumpkin shed, is the shed the Horak's sold melons out of for years along Hwy 281. We have five kids, our grand kids, family and friends that help us with the Scarecrow Patch, we are so blessed to have them in our lives.
