A final note: Crazy Dave will be auctioning off all the Patch inventory, equipment, farm etc. on Saturday May 10th. It will be a sad day so please remember Charlie and Dave in your prayers. Would love to see any of our Patch families come out and support us in this final effort. You will all be in our hearts forever. We love you all so much.

To all our Patch families: I have always dreaded the day that I would have to slow down. Unfortunately that day has come. Charlie and I can no longer keep up with the demands of running the Patch. So I will be selling the farm and the business. It breaks my heart and Charlies too, but hopefully we will find a family that will continue with the Patch. We have enjoyed the past 7 years more than we ever thought possible. Mostly due to the wonderful friends and families that we have found. We love you all so much and ask that you keep us in your prayers and in your hearts as we do you. Will update you with any news as soon as we get any. Thank you all so much for the greatest times of our lives. Love you all. Dave

Charlie here: To all our "Patch" families: We want to wish you all a Very Merry Christmas. We pray your holidays are full of family, friends, and that special magic that makes everything wonderful. We love and miss you all. Be safe, be happy. Also: A Huge Happy Happy Birthday to the boss. Yep Crazy Dave is the big 50 this year. Y'all make sure to send him a birthday hello.


To all our "Patch" families and friends: We want to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving. Remember the 4 F's----Family, Friends, Food, & Fun. Be happy & Be Safe. Love you all. Dave & Charlie


FYI Update: The boss (Dave) took me out for my steak dinner tonight. It was SOOO good. I don't know which I enjoyed more, eating it or thinking of all the wonderful people who helped me get it. We had fun talking about and remembering all the fun and silly times we had with you all this season. I love each and every one of you dearly and will think only good thoughts for all of you in the coming year. God Bless, Love Charlie


Happy Halloween from Dave & Charlie! We miss you all so much already.


FYI: The last punkins sold to help me win my bet were bought by John & Patty Hatfield Nicole & Dawson. THANKS !!


It's time to go, we've had such fun.
Fall is racing by, on the run.
The punkins are gone, the sweets are too,
There isn't much left to do.
Tuck away the memories of another great season,
The weatherman says, It'll soon be freezing,
Close the shop.
Put away the signs.
Turn out the lights one last time.

Love you all so much,
Charlie & Dave


Charlie here: Just wanted to say a HUGE Thank You to all our wonderful Patch families who came to visit this season. I love and appreciate all of you so much more than I can say. Thank you to all of you silly people like me, who helped me win my bet with the boss. It was so much fun! Blessings and good thoughts going out to all our old and new friends. Always. :)


Hey everyone, just a note to let you know, Charlie did it! She sold all the punkins and even a few of the ones Dave decorated with. What a gal. So, steakhouse here we come. LOL


Charlie is almost there, she has just 22 more punkins to sell by 6pm tomorrow. Can't believe she did this well today. Guess what she always says to me is true. Our "Patch" family are the best people in the world. Thanks for making her day so fun.


Ok. Here's the deal. Anyone who knows Charlie knows that she is great at everything she does. However I don't think she can sell all the punkins this weekend. So I have promised her a steak dinner if she sells them all. (She hasn't had a steak dinner in almost 15 years) So even though I want to win the bet, you should help her out if you can. She a wonderful person and a great best friend. She deserves to win. Thanks. Dave


Thanks to Tiger Cub Scout Troop #32 and some new friends, Charlie now has only 82 punkins left to sell. She's trying hard to win this bet with Crazy Dave. Stop out this afternoon and help her out. You'll be glad you did!


The big $3 Punkins are now $2.50each
Buy 5-------$2.00 each
Buy 10------$1.50 each
The more you buy the more you save, and the more likely Charlie will win the bet. She has 120 left to sell. Stop out tomorrow and help her clear the Patch. :)


This is the last weekend for punkin season. Crazy Dave's Punkin Patch will be open as usual, Friday 4-8 Saturday 8-8 and Sunday noon-6. See you there!


Dave & Charlie have a bet! Charlie says she can get rid of all the punkins this weekend. Dave says "No Way". We have 131 punkins left and if we know Charlie she'll keep marking them down to ridiculous prices just to win. Also last chance for cookies, popcorn balls, and that delicious hot cider. Stop out this weekend and help Charlie win her bet. She'll make you a great deal;)


Charlie has been doing too many cartwheels, she's turning everything in the shop upside down, including prices. (or maybe she's just hung out with Dave too much) Stop out this weekend and check it out.


FYI: Dave grows the Punkins. CHARLIE does EVERYTHING ELSE!! Oh, like Fareway, Dave also does carryout.


The wind was brisk, the air was chilly, but had a GREAT day, just being silly. Another great day at the Patch, visiting with "old" friends and meeting lots of new ones. :)


Whoo! Fall is really here and a cup of hot cider will take the chill away. Stop out this weekend and warm up.


Useless trivia: The largest punkin grown this year weighed in at 2032 lbs. It was grown in Napa, California by Tim Mathison in 105 days. FYI: It wasn't very pretty,but the ones at Crazy Dave's Punkin Patch are beautiful! :)


FYI: Dave & Charlie are marking down prices on almost everything this weekend. Still need punkins to carve or decorate with. All punkins 30%-50% off. All signs 50% off. Christmas crafts & signs 30%-50% off. The more you buy the more you save. Come on out this weekend and stock up, enjoy the fall weather, and visit with Charlie. Only open 2 more weekends. See you soon.


Crazy Dave's has lots of gourds, dried and ready to decorate for all you crafters. FREE Hot Cider to sip while you browse and visit will really hit the spot with this wonderful fall weather. See you soon.


FYI: There are still lots of beautiful punkins, fun fall crafts, and economical Christmas gifts available ONLY at Crazy Dave's Punkin Patch. Y'all should stop out this weekend and check it all out. Also lots of Charlie's famous Ol fashioned Popcorn Balls and Jack 'O' Lantern cookies to nibble on.

The cutest Punkin found love at the Patch.

Another beautiful day at the Patch. Its a little overcast and chilly, but a perfect fall day to drink some hot cider, enjoy the country setting, and visit with friends. Also select crafts and gifts are now half price. Guess Charlie has been hanging out with Dave too much. She's kinda crazy too! Stop out today and see the Cutest Punkin in the Patch.


First day at the Patch was so fun. It's so great to see y'all every year, and to see how much our "Patch Kids" have grown and changed. Punkin Plinko was a hit! Punkins, cookies, and popcorn balls are just flying out of the shop. Hope to see more of you tomorrow.


We have a new crafter this year and she has some amazing décor items waiting for you. Come on out to the Patch this weekend and check em out. You'll be glad you did! Especially you cowboys (hint, hint) :)


Tomorrow is opening day at the Patch! It's been a lot of hard work and long hours but in just a few more hours we get to see our old friends and hopefully make some new ones. Can't wait for the fun to begin. See you soon.


The cookies are baked and iced with a face,
Punkins all picked and set in their place.
Plinko is plinkin and popcorn balls poppin,
With Charlie & Dave there just is no stopping.
The Cider is spiced, the shelves are all full,
The Christmas Shop twinkles, the golf balls all roll.
The grass is all mowed, the sky is so blue,
The only thing missing quite simply is YOU!

Hope to see lots of you this weekend. :)
