Freeman Farms month-long Pumpkin Festival came to a close after Halloween night, with hundreds of families from around the state enjoying the pumpkin patch, hay rides, and performances, all while learning about life on the farm.

"We're a real, working farm and we've invested a lot of time and money to make sure these families can enjoy themselves and have some real, old fashioned family fun," said Norm Freeman, who with his wife, Lynne, have been hosting the festival for six years.

More than 75,000 people attended the festival on weekends since it opened in late September, with nearly 6,000 students from Arizona schools visiting the farm during the week.

"It's important for these kids to learn a little bit while they're having fun," said Freeman. "We're not a carnival or state fair, we're a real farm and we try and teach them that with the fun comes some rules and boundaries, but they really do love it, and their teachers appreciate that fact that the kids are learning some new things."
