With the fall season fully upon us, it is time to make the annual pilgramage to the area pumpkin patches to select our display, carving, and baking pumpkins for our homes. If we are lucky, we can also score some mums, pumpkin treats, and a lot of outdoor fun for the family! This week THG is following the Fun Farm Pumpkin Patch in Kearney, Missouri, where you can do all this and more.
With a full event calendar including concerts, kids activities and other live performances, there is certainly something for everyone. You can even rent campfire rings for small and large groups and book fieldtrips. The corn maze and jumbo jumper are just a couple of items on the long list of activites designed to burn some energy. If animals are your thing, the farm also comes stocked with a variety of animals to feed and view, including miniature donkeys and horses. Hayrides, the barrel train, and pig races round out the days activities. You can easily plan a full day to enjoy all the sights, shopping and activities available at this full-service Pumpkin Patch.
“Admission to the Pumpkin Patch gets you access to the hayride out to our pumpkin patch, jumbo jumper, corn crib, petting farm, tricycle track, playground, tire swing, barrel train, and rubber duck races (ducks are $2.00 but you get to keep them).” Pumpkins, concessions and gift store items are extra. The website has a full list of activities, hours, pricing and directions.
Pumpkins Etc. in Platte City provides an equally enjoyable, but different, pumpkin patch experience. With the delightful charm of a working farm, this pumpkin patch provides a more relaxed family feel. Barn kittens, a wide variety of pumpkins and gourds, and big, beautiful mums are the hallmark of this family owned and operated business. Come visit on halloween weekend and you might even get to take home one of the impish, well loved felines!
Whether you are looking for a full-day adventure or a low-key stroll through the pumpkin patch, the Northland provides a variety of pumpkin patch experiences. With barns and fields full of pumkins, like Charlie Brown and the gang, you too can welcome your Great Pumpkin!
