Scarecrow Contest


Drumroll, please! Since meeting all 16 of this year's scarecrow contenders, more than 300 of you voted for your favorite. The final results are in, and we are pleased to present our top three scarecrows for 2022:

  1. In first place — "Frida 'Caww'-Lo" by Daniel N.
  2. In second place — "Gardener Gone Missing" by Tracy H.
  3. In third place — "The Harvest Queen" by Renee E.


The winning scarecrows will be on display at the Farm through Halloween, alongside the many scarecrows created by Cornell Farm team members. Staff scarecrows will also be available for purchase, so come visit them before they go home with someone! For more info on pricing, look for the sign accompanying each scarecrow. 100% of the sale price goes to the creator of the scarecrow.

Take home a piece of Cornell Farm this autumn and support the many wonderful artists we have on our team when you decorate your garden with one of their scarecrows.


Thank you to everyone that submitted to this year's contest and voted in the final round! Here's a look back at all of this year's contestants.
