I’m a bit of a pumpkin patch connoisseur.
The best pumpkin patches I’ve known have been in the Portland area.
Both Sauvie Island and Leopold’s do a good job and provide optimal pumpkin joy.
And while I love Walla Walla, Klicker’s just doesn’t cut it. If Sauvie Island is like a sandbox, Klicker’s is like a cup of dirt.
But Bauman Farms? Oh my word. They take the cake. If Klicker’s is a cup of dirt, and Sauvie Island is a sandbox, then Bauman Farms is the entire Oregon Coast.
Imagine the activities that would make the most epic pumpkin patch experience ever.
Warm cinnamon sugar doughnuts and fresh pressed cider?
Enormous bouncy houses?
Rides and attractions galore? Check.
This was the bug train but add pumpkin slide, swing zip line, mini corn maze, giant corn maze, corn tunnels, frontier fort, and more.
Hayride? With onboard accordion player?
And of course, pumpkins.
We were there for 2.5 hours and didn’t make it to the tricycle tractors, petting zoo, Apple catapult or face painting.
Matty B doesn’t know this yet but we are going to Bauman Farms every fall for the rest of our lives.
