Visit Your Nearest Hood River Valley Pumpkin Patch
It's easy enough now days to pick up your Halloween pumpkins at your nearest grocery store or even Walmart, but around here, there's nothing quite like visiting a local pumpkin patch. Our favorite is at Rasmussen Farms because they not only have acres of pumpkins, but decorative gourds of all kinds, corn, fruit, jams, and the list goes on. They also have a hilarious, whimsical fairy tale display of scenes made out of gourds and pumpkins. And their corn maze is not to be missed.
Open now, until November 11th, Pumpkin Funland at Rasumussen Farms is located at 3020 Thomsen Road, just five miles south of the town of Hood River. The Hood River Valley Fruit Loop is a tour of the region's fruit stands, which includes lots of other great spots to pick your perfect pumpkin.
