Just sharing about a place we really enjoyed visiting!

On Saturday we took a trip out to visit Ryser’s Farm & Pumpkin Patch in Tualatin, Oregon.  This was our first pumpkin patch visit as a family!  I think it might have been the first time I have ever been to one.

The farm is fairly small but there are plenty of pumpkins to choose from, both growing on the vine and lined up in rows for easy choosing. There are different sizes and varieties of pumpkins, as well as gourds, squash, and decorative dried corn.   Isaac (after much apparent inner debate) chose one of the little red wagons provided by the farm and set off in search of the perfect pumpkin.

But before we found it, a young man asked if we were interested in going for a hay ride on the big covered wagon pulled by a tractor.  Insert here resounding YES’s from both kids.  The wagon fit multiple families and we all sat comfortably on hay bales enjoying the ride around the farm, Emma with her eyes on the corn stalks, pumpkins, flowers, goats, and other scenery around us and Isaac with eyes only for the tractor ahead.  ;-)  After that, we found our special pumpkin and checked out some of the other highlights of the farm.

Some of the attractions we enjoyed were:

– Various places to take pictures (with the hay spider, scarecrow, & more)
– The pumpkins range in price from $2 to $4 depending on size.
– Wagons you can use during your visit (free)
– Tractor hay ride ($2, children 3 and under are free)
– Mini pumpkin toss (free)
– Small hay maze ($1)
– Swings for the kids
– Baby chicks, goats, turkeys, and chickens to look at (not a petting zoo)
– Drinks and snacks including delicious homemade caramel apples ($4 for the apples)

If you’re looking for a fun, family-friendly, tot-friendly farm experience, you’ll love Ryser’s Farm!   The kids (5 and almost 3) loved every minute there. What I really liked about it was the fact that it had a laid-back family farm atmosphere.  It was not overwhelming and was a great experience for us.  I appreciated that the things to do there were reasonably priced, too.   We’ll be going back next year!

  • I love that you shared going to this farm! We like going there too and have every year since my son was born! The slide show to give us a look of more of of your adventure is a great touch too!

  • Aww! There’s not many things better than a pumpkin patch and hayride in the fall! :) Truly a great memory making experience! We go each year and it’s the boys talk about it for weeks! This year they let us feed the cows and chickens some tortilla’s! haha Pumpkin and fall picture are probably my favorite of the entire year! Glad your kiddo’s had fun! I’m sure Isaac was in little boy heaven!

  • That hay spider is super cute. I had no idea what you meant until I saw the picture.
