U-Pick Pumpkins
We grow more than a dozen varieties of pumpkins in our five-acre U-pick pumpkin patch. Bring the kids and Grandma and Grandpa, too! Everyone has a great time looking for that special pumpkin. Cost: $0.45/pound.

Treats & Eats
It’s made right here, it’s fresh, & it’s awesome! You will absolutely love our homemade treats. Lunch food (hotdogs, hamburgers and brats) is available during Apple & Pumpkin Fest Weekends.

Shop 
You’ll find a variety of products in our on-farm store including all of the great products that we make from our apples, peaches, pumpkins, and more.

Activities
Fee of $7 adults and children plus tax (age 2 and under is free) provides you with:

  • Hay Wagon Ride
    Everyone loves a hay wagon ride, young and not so young! — it’s a great way to see the entire farm and soak in the beautiful Iowa countryside in the fall. You’ll be surprised that you’re so close to Des Moines! Please note: The hay wagon rides are available only during Apple & Pumpkin Fest weekends.
  •  Corn Box
    Our corn box is a favorite again this year!  It’s amazing how much time kids can spend romping around, walking, playing and digging in piles of corn kernels.
  • Hay Bale Maze
    The hay bale maze is perfect for children and it’s fun for parents & grandparents to watch their kids wind their way through bales of hay.
  • Duck Races
    The race is on at our hand-pump duck races.  This activity is another favorite! Pump and pump to race little plastic ducks down stream.  This is a fun activity not just for kids but for grown-ups too!
  • Rope Maze
    New in 2019, is our rope maze.  We’ve had a corn maze for years but this year a storm packed with rain and wind flattened our corn maze and it did not recover. But for those of you who like mazes, we set out to create a different kind of maze. It’s a rope maze and it’s located just inside of our timber. The rope goes from tree-to-tree-to tree. Visually, it’s very hard to see how to navigate through it.  We think you’ll like it!
  • Giant Tube Slide
    Also new in 2019, is our
    Giant tube slide. Our tube slides are big enough for adults too!
  • Barnyard
    Come and say “hi” to our entertaining goats and chickens. We’ve also added on to our barn!
  • Toss Games
    There are several bean bag toss games set out for friendly competition between you and your family or friends.

Gourd Painting
During our Apple & Pumpkin Fest weekends, kids of all ages can paint their own gourds.  Cost: $2/gourd and we provide the paint for free!
