Meet The Owners

Paul and Sherry Staley are the proud owners and managers of Pumpkin Works. The Staley Family has been involved in agriculture in Elbridge township for the past 7 generations.

In 1993, they opened the doors of Pumpkin Works for the first time with one straw maze, a haunted house, and pumpkins for sale. Their main barn was built in the 1850's. Paul's Great Grandpa Johnson helped build this barn to house horses for the local stage coach. Since then, it has been used for dairy cows, beef cattle, hogs and currently houses 3 mazes, displays and a toddler’s corn room.

Pumpkin Works has grown to provide the public with 10 mazes, 3 hayrides through the 200 acre woods located at Pumpkin Works, a nature preserve with a hiking trail, bonfires, silhouettes, a straw fort, the Discovery Barn, and much more. The Staleys love running Pumpkin Works, as they are able to provide good, wholesome, family entertainment. The Staleys invite you to escape to Pumpkin Works and enjoy awesome family fun on their farm.
