Many farms are still finalizing their fall plans due to a strange year for weather. We'll continually add more spots as we hear back from them.
Yesteryear Pumpkin Patch and Christmas Trees is expanding its offerings in 2022 with its first pumpkin patch. With nine different varieties of pumpkins, you'll be able to find some perfect for carving as well as ideal for fall décor. Just to add to the mix, they have a huge area filled with fun holiday decorating items, making sure your home will be filled with the Halloween spirit inside and out.
Head out to Boring for Liepold Farm’s annual Fall Harvest Festival, running the final two weekends in September before opening 7 days a week throughout October from 9am-5pm. Not only do they have a tremendous selection of pumpkins, but a huge, five-acre corn maze that will be an exciting challenge. The Kid's Pavilion has been modified for COVID safety this year and includes the Dark Maze and other fun. Other fun activities include the Apple Pult, hayride and the Dead End Challenge. If you come during the weekends you can enjoy sausage dogs, nachos, caramel corn plus a great selection of local beers, wines and hard ciders.
The pumpkin patch at Frog Pond Farm in Wilsonville opens up seven days a week starting Sept. 23 and runs through October. Bring the smaller kids during the day to see the fields filled with pumpkins, plus more than 80 animals of 15 different species. The braver can come out on Friday-Sunday nights for the Spooky Farm Walk.
Bushue’s Family Farm out in Boring is known for being a great spot for u-pick berries. Once that season ends, pumpkin season begins. Pumpkin season here starts October 1 this year. Admission is free, but reservations are required. Private hayrides are still available. You'll be able to pick the perfect pumpkins from their extensive (and scenic) grounds.
If a big pumpkin patch isn’t enough to excite your kids, perhaps a miniature train ride at Flower Farmer/Phoenix Holly Railroad in Canby will be enough to get the kids interested. Train rides are available on the weekends while the store is open daily for seasonal fruit and veggies. Be sure to check their website for schedules.
For a truly unique weekend experience check out Our Table Cooperative's Certified Organic pumpkin with both decorative and edible pumpkins every Saturday and Sunday in October. Additional fall fun includes hay rides, arts & crafts, beer and wine tastings, coffee tastings as well as kombucha tastings. Best of all, a costume contest over Halloween. *Dog-friendly farm!
