  • Build a scarecrow that is freestanding (or is attached to a metal t-post).
  • No live plants on your scarecrows. Also, real pumpkins tend to rot quickly.
  • Make your scarecrow as durable and weatherproof as possible. Scarecrows that deteriorate to an unacceptable level during the month will be removed.
  • Entries must be suitable for children/families. The farm has sole discretion in determining if the scarecrow is family friendly and appropriate for display at the farm.
  • The farm will provide signage identifying your organization (if applicable) and the name of your scarecrow.
  • The farm is not responsible for damage of the scarecrows.
  • Voting for scarecrows will occur throughout the month of October. Winners will be notified via email by November 4th.
