PUMPKIN PATCHES - October

Fall is here, and that means pumpkin spiced everything is on the market. Well, you can’t have the spice without the pumpkin, and fortunately we have a lot of farms in Mt. Hood Territory with some pretty awesome pumpkin patches. So here’s a round up of some of our favorite pumpkin patch and picking options here in The Territory.

  • 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. Head over Tuesday – Sundays from 10 am to 5 pm for your pick of pumpkins from their extensive (and scenic) grounds. Plus tractor-pulled hayrides and farm animals!
  • Fiala Farms in West Linn has a great pumpkin patch and you can even clip your own pumpkin straight from the vine! Not to mention a large corn maze as well. They also have wide selection of other vegetables, from various gourds to peppers, carrots beans and more.
  • Fir Point Farms near Aurora has a lot to offer in addition to pumpkins. Their Country Grains Store is known for farm-fresh baked goods (hint: apple cider donuts) and delicious soups, fresh pies and all sorts of other fresh goodies that hearken back to a simpler time. Also fun for kids is the Charlotte’s Web corn maze. Their friendly goats are always a big hit as well.
  • 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. The Pumpkin Run begins operations in Sept. and runs through Oct. 31. The jack-o’-lantern train runs seven days as week. The Boo Train, (think haunted house on rails) for older kids runs in Oct. from late dusk until 9 pm. *Dog-friendly farm!
  • Head out to Boring for Liepold Farm’s annual Fall Harvest Festival. Not only do they have a tremendous selection of pumpkins, but a huge, five-acre corn maze that will be an exciting challenge. Other fun activities include the Apple Pult, hay ride and the Dead End Challenge. The Owl Bistro features amazing pulled pork sandwiches, nachos and other favorites, as well as a great selection of local beers, wines and hard ciders. *Dog-friendly farm!
  • Wenzel Farm really pulls out all the stops. Not only do they have pumpkins for the choosing, but the Fantasy Trail is all decked out for Halloween with spooky lights and sounds. The trail includes a suspension bridge, castle and crooked house. Check their site for updated hours this year.
  • Ryser’s Farm off of Stafford road is great for school field trips with their abundance of pumpkins, mini straw bales, mini hay maze and apple cider. Plus they have ready-picked farm fresh eggs, herbs and veggies.
  • For a truly unique weekend experience check out Our Table Cooperative’s Certified Organic pumpkin patch with both decorative and edible pumpkins. Plus a myriad of family activities including hay rides and cider pressing.

With this many options throughout Mt. Hood Territory there really isn’t any excuse to not decorate your porch with a funny (or spooky) faced pumpkin. So get out to one of these charming farms!
