Opening Weekend Saturday, September 24 from 10am-dark Sundays 1pm to Dark
Sunset View Farms is located in Ballard, West Virginia. The 70 acre farm was purchased in 2014 by Kelly and Tara Johnson who live there with their two children. Originally, it was purchased as a beef and cattle operation. Starting the summer of 2016, they planted a pumpkin patch to grow & sell pumpkins locally. Pumpkins were sold from the back of a truck in both Monroe and bordering Giles County, Virginia that year. With a wonderful community response the decision was made to open the farm to the public for the first time in 2017. Sugar Run Pumpkin Festival, LLC began first in 2017.
By 2018 Sugar Run Pumpkin Festival, LLC located at Sunset View Farms made the list topping the 9 Best Pumpkin Picking Places in West Virginia!
Sunset View Farms is a family run farm promoting agri-tourism to Monroe County, West Virginia. The farm is owned and operated by Kelly and Tara Johnson and their children Paul & Addyson. They view the farm, and their abilities to run the farm, as just a few of God's abundant blessings. Church groups are welcome to enjoy the ample opportunities to be immersed in God's word and participate in wholesome family fun. In the corn maze, not only is there bible trivia questions, but also the winding path reads a message of the bible from above.
