Saturday, activities start at 9:00 AM
Start a new fall family tradition at the Petersen Family Farm Pumpkin Patch. Under crisp October skies, make memories as you enjoy wagon rides, frolic in the corn pit, wander the beautifully decorated greenhouse, and even launch a few apples from the apple slingshot. For a blast from the past that you can take home with you, try out our old-fashioned popcorn crank: a hand-operated machine designed to separate the delicious kernels from the cob. Then collect your kernels to pop at home!
Of course, no visit to the Pumpkin Patch is complete without pumpkins. This isn’t your grocery-store bin of round orange squash. Instead, it’s a rainbow of colors and a spectrum of sizes. Find pumpkins of every conceivable kind: miniature to massive; short to tall; smooth or warty; and everyday orange to red, white, green, yellow, grey, or pink. We grow them on the Farm, so every year at harvest we have a huge variety, and do our best to keep the varieties harvested until the last week of the season. Grab a few pumpkins for carving, several for decorating the porch, and at least one sugar pumpkin for a great seasonal dessert.
With your purchase of a Pumpkin Pass to the pumpkin patch, you receive the month long entrance pass, and 3 tickets each that can be used to participate in the activities, plus access to our yearly Harvest Festival. (Additional activity tickets are available for purchase at the farm for activities.)
Looking to purchase the famous Petersen pumpkins without enjoying the patch and needing a Pumpkin Pass? We have a Market Patch available with a wide selection of our pumpkins located to the east of the Market, come by anytime during market hours to find a new favorite! The Market patch is for those looking for their perfect pumpkin, but not wanting to participate in the additional activities such as the wagon ride, apple slingshot, etc.
