“Nice place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Great place to take your kids for fall season photos. As the fall colors sure make for some nice photos. The little kids love visiting the patch and picking out a pumpkin or 2 to take home with them for Halloween.

“Family Fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013 via mobile

Great place to go with the kids. Priced very reasonable. Parking was a bit difficult because everyone just kinda parked wherever. Snacks were also priced very reasonable. Will make this a yearly event.

“Fun for the kids...Relaxing for the adult”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

The Pumpkin Patch does an amazing job. The simple things that the kids can do will keep them entertained for hours, and the zip lines are great. A person can get great pictures and the treats are very inexpensive. We actually enjoyed Papas Patch 3 seperate times this year, including doing our 6 year olds birthday party there. The boys had a blast. We had our own small area with table and baloons along with pumpkin cookies for everyone. We also spent a couple hours there with our sons kindergarten class, they loved the corn pool. Couple things that may be improved..the porta pottys may need to be emptied more often, we were also there a very windy day, and because of the dryness the dust was terrible, spraying some water down on the roads would help. Thanks for all the work everyone does to ...Can't wait for the winter adventure.
