MALAGA — When Steve Scott planted a pumpkin patch on his Malaga farm eight years ago, he said he did it for the children. He still plants the pumpkin patch and makes a corn maze from field corn to show children a farm. But it’s also bringing in a quarter of his farm income. With 1,500 to 1,800 people visiting Gau-Sco Produce and Pork Farm during a good October, it’s no surprise that the annual pumpkin patch and other farm activities have become a major part of Scott’s farm income. “It’s catching on,” said Scott. “More people want to come out to the country and it’s close to town.”
