Pick Your Own Pumpkins!

When you visit Down in the Hollar, you have an opportunity to pick your own pumpkins right off the vine. Instead of looking through buckets or piles, you can walk through our acreage. We are available to lend a hand - our own grandkids were the ones that thought this was more fun.

Newton's Best Funnel cakes

There's nothing better than a crisp fall day hanging out in our pumpkin patch having a funnel cake and looking for pumpkins. If you're not in the mood for funnel cakes, no worries! Verlin and Sonya have lots of other great fall treats ready for you to try.

Corn Maze at Down in The Hollar!

Our corn is over 10' high and this is one of our most popular activities. Walk over the dry creek bridge from one maze to the other maze. Our corn maze, pumpkin patch and haunt is only a few minutes away from Newton and Wichita.

About Us

About Down in the Hollar

Verlin and Sonya Siefkes have been entertaining people for many years. Several years ago, they realized a pumpkin patch and corn maze would be a great treat for their family and others. It started out unofficially in 2007. Their family invited other families (many, many other families), and before they knew it, it became a time-honored tradition. 2013 marks the innagural year of Verlin and Sonya planting this many pumpkins.

Sonya would also like you to know that she sowed every individual pumpkin seed herself - on six acres!

If you live in Newton, Wichita, Bel Aire, Park City, Derby, Goddard, Maize or Andover, we hope you will take a couple hours and come visit our pumpkin patch and corn maze. It's the most family-oriented fun you are likely to have, and significantly more like visiting friends and experiencing the best of what Kansas has to offer...as opposed to an amusement park that offers pumpkins.

Come visit Down in the Hollar today - it may be the most fun you've had in a long time!
