Fall Field Trips
What better time to visit the farm than in the crisp fall weather?
Our fall farm tours have the advantage of being held at the same time as our fall pumpkin patch season, so the farm is already set up for making fun fall memories.
We begin the tour by gathering your group in our main barn. Groups big and small sit comfortably upon our straw bleachers while one of our knowledgeable guides gives the farm talk. We discuss the different types of pumpkins and produce grown on the farm as well as what it is like to be a farmer and the responsibilities that come along with the job such as taking care of animals and working the fields. We wrap this segment of your tour up by sharing the rich history of our farm.
Now it’s time to get outside and experience the farm in the elements!
Then your guide takes you to visit the animals, tour the farm, and play on our mazes and slides. We have 5 tube slides, 2 hay slides, and 3 different mazes all suitable for children and adults to enjoy!
Next we go on a hayride though our Christmas trees and up into our upper field on a scenic ride. The pay off is at the top of hill, when you can look down at the full spread of the farm and the valley below. You will be riding on our custom built wood trailers. The trailer is pulled by one of our tractors and has a real down home farm feel. The trailers are also covered, so you can take refuge from the Oregon rain when needed.
After the hayride you are off to pick your very own sugar pie pumpkin to take home. Many classes like to come to the farm for two tours per year, and if your group has come to our spring farm tours then you get to pick your pumpkins from the seeds you planted in the field last May. Children love seeing the result of their hard work!
This is where the guided part of your tour ends. Your group is welcome to stay a little longer and play in our fallow field, or in our play structure and tipi area, or simply to have lunch or a snack in one of our picnic areas. Apple cider and kettle corn are great options for a snack here on the farm, just remember to bring your own smaller containers to split up the large containers we sell them in.
Treat your group to a colorful harvest experience!
Notes About Weather
We will conduct your farm tour rain or shine.
That being said, we will do our best to customize your tour to fit the rapidly changing weather here in Oregon, and we do have many covered areas. All of our tube slides are covered. We have a straw maze that is covered. Your farm talk inside our barn is covered and so is your hay ride. We also have several covered spaces for your group to gather to eat their snack or lunch.
Our best advice is to make sure that your group is dressed properly for the weather and for a trip to a farm. Rain coats, umbrellas and rubber boots are always welcome!

Notes for School Buses
Sometimes school buses coming from the south prefer to avoid the hard curves of Old Cornelius Pass Road below the farm.
An alternate route is to take Cornelius Pass Road to the top of the hill at Skyline Boulevard, turning left/west at the blinking yellow light. Then turn left/south at the quick stop sign and then turn right into the driveway a quarter mile from the last turn.
