See the beauty of the season at your local pumpkin patches
YACOLT — October is almost over, and the Fall has officially ushered in the season of harvest and autumnal activities; chiefly among them is the pumpkin patch.
We are visiting patches all over the county to give you a taste of what these local farms have for you to enjoy. Fifth on our list is Pomeroy Farm’s Pumpkin Lane.
The still, family-owned farm is over 100 years old and features a stunning landscape of timber and fields nestled in the Lucia Valley along the east for of the Lewis River.
The farm’s pumpkin patch is an annual event joined by many other groups and activities. Open every weekend in October, Pumpkin Lane, as it’s called, hosts different food carts, reenactments and performances each year.
Chiefly among the reenactments, is the Civil War camp that is there one weekend out of October. Soldiers dressed in accurate uniforms and occupying real canvas tents give demonstrations with rifles, old toys and crafts.
There is a nearly mile-long hayride to and from the pumpkin patch itself, with many fun things to see along the way. Gorgeous views of the valley are numerous, as well as “Pumpkin People,” which can be spotted along the route.
Every year, all manner of comical scenes are constructed by the farm staff with figures sporting pumpkin heads. The little vignettes of humor contain some 100 Pumpkin People in total.
Admission to Pumpkin Lane is $6 per adult and $4 for children 3 to 11-years-old.
From all of us at Clark County Today, we hope you have an amazing time going pumpkin picking across the county. Go grab your pumpkins today! Happy Fall!
