Patch at Velvet Acres Gardens celebrates another Halloween season, and other farms throughout the county are welcoming guests, as well
There is a hayride, there is a corn maze, and get this, you can play corn hole on a painted board of corn, right next to stalks of corn.
For the adventurous souls, there is a pyramid of hay to climb.
Oh, and if you are into cute, you must check out the petting zoo. Miniature horses, goats, and baby goats. All of them are your best friends … if you have a little food in your hand.
And of course, there are pumpkins and pumpkins and more pumpkins to choose from, all at the Vancouver Pumpkin Patch at Velvet Acres Gardens.
Cost is $10 to join in on the fun, which includes a pumpkin for each person to bring home. Velvet Acres Gardens is located at 18905 NE 83rd Street, Vancouver.
“I love it. It’s just rewarding. Putting things in the ground, and digging in the earth, I love it. I love looking at all the stuff we’ve harvested,” said Crystal Boldt of Velvet Acres.
And she loves having the community celebrate at the family farm every year during October.
The pumpkin patch has been open at Velvet Acres for 12 years
It is just one of many farms throughout Southwest Washington that are having pumpkin patch festivities throughout the month.
The Patch in Woodland, located at 612 Whalen Road, is open. So, too, is Bi-Zi Farms at 9504 NE 119th Street. Pumpkin Lane at Pomeroy Farm at 20902 NE Lucia Falls Road in Yacolt is always a prime destination in October.
And many, many more.
