The kids are back in school, and summer is coming to an end. But there’s no need to fret. Soon enough apple cider, hayrides, bonfires, and the copious use of cinnamon will signal the glorious arrival of fall.
As the air starts feeling a bit crisp and the leaves begin to turn, we’re all excited to start celebrating the impending autumn season. What’s on every family’s fall bucket list? Visiting a pumpkin patch of course! With good eats, games, and adorable photos, it’s easy to tell why we love the annual pilgrimage to our favorite patch.
Portland Moms Blog has put together a full list of local pumpkin patches.
A Few Pumpkin Patch Tips:
- If you can go on a weekday, do it! It will be much less crowded, and the farms often have weekday pricing. With that in mind, there are usually fewer “activities” during the week, so it’s a bit of a pros vs cons situation.
- Remember these are working farms! Common sense prevails and kiddos need supervision. Many have heavy equipment and live animals. You don’t want your child to end up in a pig pen!
- We know you want those adorable pumpkin pictures, but keep in mind part of the fun of a farm is getting a little dirt on your hands…and clothes. Depending on the weather, it can get both muddy and HOT in those patches. So dress in layers, and be prepared with boots and raincoats! Seasoned moms bring towels and a change of clothes just in case.
Kruger’s is a working farm located just 20 minutes from downtown Portland on Sauvie Island.
Visit us in October, and you’ll find hayrides, a pumpkin patch, farm animals, caramel apples, a corn maze, a haunted maze, weekend hoe downs, and more.
No cowtrains or hoppity houses….just a real farm with authentic farm activities and animals that live here year-round. We’ve (lovingly) named our corn maze the “Weed Maze.” That’s because we skipped the Round-Up herbicide this year and the weeds have grown almost as high as the corn. We love it!

All things apples! Offering farm family fun centered around apples and a quaint pumpkin patch, Oregon Heritage Farms is a must-do stop for your fall adventures.
Kids will love the many fun activities (Apple Bounce House, Spider Web, and more) and adults will love the farm fresh apples and freshly pressed cider.
We look forward to seeing you this fall! Welcome to the Charm of Oregon Heritage Farms.
