BUCKSPORT, SC (WMBF) - Strong winds damaged Thompson Farm during Hurricane Matthew, but October is the farm’s busiest month of the year. 

So Scott Thompson knew he needed to get it functioning again as fast as possible.

“I do what I have to do to make as many people happy as I can,” Thompson said. “I’ll work 24 hours a day if I have to for a little while. We’ve been working pretty long days, there’s no doubt about it.”

The wall blew out of the classroom, but field trips will resume Thursday. Children from schools all around the area come to learn about pumpkins and the history of the farm.

The ticket stand blew over and that’s right-side-up again. Some of the plastic siding of the green houses is still gone and the bottom of the slide broke off, so that might not be back up again for right now.

Still, the farm will be open for its fall events this weekend, starting with Teal Nation Day on Friday because it was canceled last weekend..

Friday is also movie and flashlight night for the corn maze. Saturday is the dog show and people can bring their pets to participate. Hay wagon rides and the other fall festivities will be going on as well.

Check out the Thompson Farm and Nursery website for full schedules and details.
