Things to know as your plan your trip to Plumper Pumpkins
We have been working hard to get the farm ready to open for Pumpkin Season for the last several months. Those of you who have been coming for many years will see a number of changes. Although we understand that things will be different, the good news is that you will get to see the farm in ways like never before!
This year, we will be using a “Farm Admission” model. We also have set up an online store where you can purchase your tickets for the date and time of your choosing. Please plan carefully as these tickets are non refundable and non transferable (think in terms of a movie ticket or a zoo ticket). This new ticketing system allows us to limit the number of people who are on the farm at any given time.
Most of our attractions will be open! You will see many new hand sanitizer stations, staff members dedicated to sanitizing touch surfaces, and one way paths. We will not have hayrides, pig races, live music, or barrel trains. We have been carefully watching both local and state guidance, and understand that some things are inherently easier to clean and socially distance than others. We are also working to adapt as guidance changes.
Our new “Farm Loop” trails will take you all around the farm! There are loops through the animals, corn maze, sunflowers, and pumpkins. As a bonus, there is a 5th loop through our Christmas trees where you may just sight the perfect tree for your house this year!
Tickets are available at the link below.

**The Pumpkin Patch will open September 26th for our 23rd season! ** Hours: Tuesday thru Sunday 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. We will be closed on Mondays!
The Plumper Pumpkin Patch and Tree Farm is located on 65 acres of what used to be a century dairy farm. The rolling hills and beautiful view of the Willamette Valley provide the amazing setting for our family owned and operated farm. Our focus here is to provide easy access to home grown produce, while creating lasting memories for children and families as they experience the wonder and beauty of a working farm.
On our farm, you’ve got options! You can pick your pumpkin out of our bins, or out of our fields, the choice is yours! Then you can choose between the old fashioned wagons or the ever efficient wheel barrels to bring what you harvest from the nearby fields.
We have a wide variety of types, colors, and sizes of pumpkins to choose from. But that’s not all! We also sell hand painted as well as plain ornamental gourds. Pick some up to make a centerpiece, decoration or bird house. Bring some fall atmosphere into your home!
Don’t forget to stop by our farm kitchen where we sell caramel apples, kettle corn, fresh cider, and corn on the cob from our corn roaster. There’s something to tickle everybody’s taste buds!
There’s a lot to do and see at the farm in the fall, so bring your family by and create some fun and lasting memories!

Ben Brink from the Oregonian was here and wrote nice article with nice photos and a video that was published on the OregonLive.com website. He came on a foggy day when lots of field trip folks were here. Here is the link: Plumper Pumpkin Patch has 24 varieties of pumpkin, and a whole lot of ideas on what to do with them.
