October is finally here and that means haunted houses, apple picking, trick-or-treating, and, of course, taking a trip to the pumpkin patch!
Is there anything better than carving a couple pumpkins with your family to perfectly decorate your home for Halloween? We didn’t think so. Unless you’ve got a few pumpkins growing in the garden behind your house, you’ll probably need to find a pumpkin patch to bring home your family’s pumpkins and other locally-grown produce like delicious apples. Thankfully, we here in the Portland area have access to many great farms for picking pumpkins. While we know that we cannot possibly list them all, we’ll do our best to highlight a handful of them here for you.
Up on Sauvie Island is The Pumpkin Patch on Sauvie Island. The Pumpkin Patch on Sauvie Island has many different attractions ni addition to pumpkin picking, like the Giant Haymaze, the Giant Pyramid, and the Big Red Animal Barn, that children and families are sure to love. Pumpkin picking starts at 9:00 am every day and lasts until 5:45 pm. Before you pick your perfect pumpkin, be sure to take your family on a scenic hayride around the farm.
Plumper Pumpkin Patch
With over 65 acres of farm land, Plumper Pumpkin Patch brings beautiful views of the rolling hills of Willanette Valley. Family owned and operated, Plumper Pumpkin Patch places an emphasis on easy access to fresh and home-grown produce. Families can choose to choose their pumpkins out of the barn, or grab a whopper lopper to cut pumpkins off the vine in the fields.
About half-an-hour West of Portland sits the Roloff Farm. Many may recognize it as the backdrop to the long-running TLC show, “Little People, Big World”, Roloff Farm provides great experiences and activities for kids of all ages. They also have a huge variety of pumpkins including blue and pink pumpkins, white (ghost) pumpkins, hound speckled pumpkins, and mini pumpkins and gourds as well!
Even though there are many more pumpkin patches in the Portland area worth visiting, we’re going to end our list here. Besides, if we kept going, we wouldn’t have a chance to talk about the great Mercedes-Benz vehicles here at Mercedes-Benz of Wilsonville. With our wide array of models, we know that we’ve got the perfect vehicle for you and your family right here at our dealership.
