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.
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.
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!
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.
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!
