Our Tips for Planning a Perfect Visit

Since you’ll likely be driving out to the farm to visit us, we thought we’d provide some tips on how to best enjoy the organic apple orchard and pumpkin patch located less than 20 minutes west of Des Moines. Follow these suggestions and you’ll have a lovely time at Wills Family Orchard!

  • Please leave all pets at home. It’s not because we don’t love dogs & other pets — we do!– but it’s because we’re a working farm and want to ensure the safety of your animals as well as all of our visitors.
  • We have clippers and wagons for you to use for picking pumpkins!
