Our Tips for Planning a Perfect Visit
We thought we’d provide some tips on how to best enjoy the organic apple orchard and pumpkin patch located 20 minutes west of West Des Moines. Follow these suggestions and you’ll have a lovely time at Wills Family Orchard!
- We accept Visa & Master Card.
- We have clippers for cutting your pumpkins off the vines & wagons to carry your pumpkins.
- Please leave all pets at home. It’s not because we don’t love dogs & other pets — we do! — it’s because we’re a working farm and want to ensure the safety of your animals as well as all of our visitors.
