Lakeview Farms originated in 1987 as a family run produce garden by Mike and Sue Cropp with the help of their four children. As its popularity grew, we found that people were enjoying the beautiful settings of the majestic, evergreen tree filled park and serene lake side area more than the garden. As a result, we have developed an inviting, private park area that accommodates a multitude of large and small groups and gatherings.
Enhanced by the yearly Halloween celebrations, one member of the yearly garden produce emerged as the people's favorite: the pumpkin! We quickly expanded on the pumpkin's popularity by planting 15 acres of the plump, colorful vegetable. In order to make the pumpkin picking and harvesting a more fun and fun filled adventure for children, adults and families, we soon added stern wheeler boats to glide across the lake's surface and a miniature train.
