This charming pumpkin patch is often overshadowed by the popular adjacent Maan Farms. Willow View Farms is set against wide-open spaces as you drive downhill to view their picturesque country-styled farmhouse.
The farm was first purchased in the 1960s by the Siemens Family and thus began their life in the Valley as dairy farmers and moved on to hog farming in 1978. Since 1991, the ownership of the farm has been passed over to their son Murray & his wife, Cheryl to continue the farming legacy. To this day, it still remains a family affair as Murray and Cheryl’s grown daughters and a son-in-law all contribute to the farm.
