VIDEO: Heart of the Harvest 2020 — Vancouver Pumpkin Patch


Take a look at one of Vancouver’s favorite farms and how they’re fairing during COVID-19

VANCOUVER — October is nearly over, but pumpkins are still in full swing. Our second stop this year is Vancouver Pumpkin Patch at Velvet Acres Gardens in East Vancouver.

The farm operators ask that you bring a mask and follow social distancing precautions when in the shop. You’re also encouraged to visit the small zoo that features Oreo the goat, a llama and two miniature horses his year. Reservations are not required for entry, but tickets are $3.

Amenities this year will include the corn maze and farm store, with a food cart open on weekends. Unfortunately, the farm is unable to offer hayrides for people (only for pumpkins) or the event room.

Vancouver Pumpkin Patch is open through the end of October. Tuesday through Sunday they are open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The farm is located at 18905 NE 83rd St, Vancouver, WA 98682. For more information, visit their website or give them a call at (360) 892-0434. They still have many pumpkins available.
