The Fall season just isn’t complete without a trip to a local pumpkin patch. Here at VonThun Farms, we don’t just have one pumpkin patch — we have two! We hope you’ll take the time to visit them both! Prices are are determined seasonally and are available at the farm.
The Walk-To Patch
It’s located near the orchard with our apple picking guests in mind. The Walk-To Patch is filled with lots of Jack-o-Lantern pumpkins and is decorated with fun and whimsical wooden cartoon characters. No cost to enter — you just pay for what you pick.
Located on the back acres of the farm, this Pumpkin Patch requires a hayride to visit (available with Festival Admission). Filled with pumpkins and gourds of all shapes and sizes, it’s also home to many cartoon characters and photo props.
Good to know …
- Pumpkins are technically a fruit. Fruit does rot, and so do pumpkins. Although many pumpkins hold up well all Fall and last well past Thanksgiving, we cannot tell when any given pumpkin will rot. We unfortunately cannot, therefore guarantee that all pumpkins will last until Halloween.
- Although any type of pumpkin can be used for cooking or baking, cheese pumpkins and sugar pumpkins are the best pumpkins to use for pie making.
- Many different type pumpkins, gourds, and hubbards can be found in our pumpkin patches.
- Canned pumpkin and fresh pumpkin are interchangeable in recipes.
