Council Bluffs Pumpkin Patch Guide
Fall is almost here and that means it’s time to plan a visit to local pumpkin patches! For the past seven years or so, we’ve stuck to visiting pumpkin patches in Council Bluffs. We love supporting local businesses and the family vibe that the local patches offer. There are three fantastic pumpkin patches in Council Bluffs if you are wondering where to get your jack-o-lantern this year!
Pumpkin Patches in Council Bluffs
One of our favorite places to visit for apples and pumpkins is Ditmars Orchard. Offering a great selection of pumpkins, delicious foods, and fun for the kids! There is a play area, corn maze, hayrack rides, and more. Don’t forget to grab some Apple Cider Doughnuts, a Cider Slushie and Nacho Taters – yum!
Welch’s Pumpkin Patch (Currently Open Weekends 9am-7pm)
I definitely need to take the kids back to Welch’s Pumpkin Patch this year. The last fall we visited was while I was pregnant with the twins. Admission is free at Welch’s, situated on Sunnydale Road behind the owner’s house. Don’t let that fool you though as it’s a huge patch and there are plenty of fabulous pumpkins, fun to be had for the kids, as well as honey and jams to purchase. Check out this post about our visit in 2012.
Pioneer Trail Orchard and Pumpkin Patch (Pumpkin Patch and Events begin September 23rd)
Located on Chestnut Road, Pioneer Trail Orchard and Pumpkin Patch has lots to offer. Hop on the hayrack ride to pick out your pumpkin, test your fears in the haunted house, pick apples, find your way through the corn maze, and more. They also offer outdoors movies on Friday and Saturday nights.
