Thanks for your help, good ideasWell I found the farm stand thread I loved but seems like all the photos from it are now gone. That sucks. Maybe the thread will still give you a few ideas.
Our Creepy Farm Setup
but I just checked to see if @Skelly215 had posted the photos from it to an album on the forum and they did! Glad you’ll be able to see them

You could get some plastic animal skeletons. The large horse skeleton that Home Depot sells could be set into a cool scene. Maybe have it pulling a wagon or plow, then set a regular sized skeleton driving the equipment. I have my horse set in front of a wagon with a headless bride driving it. I used black wired ribbon to create the harness and reins.Welcome aboard @sharona4578 ! I’ve seen a number of post/threads on farm scenes shared here on the forum. One of my favorites included a farm stand. I’ll see if I can locate it to get you started. If you go that route, Stores like Dollar Tree and 99 Cent Only Stores are a few suggestions to find inexpensive faux fruit and vegetables to include in it. Also sometimes a Goodwill might have faux fruit and certainly different baskets and such.
When we did it, we would find a way to get our corn stalks as cheap as possible. The ones at the stores are small and can get pricey when you need a bunch of them, like we did. Some years we were given a lot of them via a community garden, or sometimes checking online for people selling theirs in exchange for cutting our own and therefore cleaning up the field. We would tie them into a bundle just like you find at the stores (tied with twine around the middle), splayed the bundles out, sometimes digging the ends into the ground a bit, and running a length of rebar down the middle to make sure nothing knocked them down. We also had a red pumpkin light underneath them. You could switch up the color depending on what kind of feel you want it to have.funny you should mention this - I just sent a message about the 2 scarecrows in this posting - but it might also give you some ideas...
I have a number of items that I will be listing, adding several over the next few days that are in this theme. We spent a lot of time collecting them as we did a Haunted Cornfield theme for many years but last year switched to a cemetery. So I gotta make room! Willing to trade for similar value...www.halloweenforum.com
