Pumpkin Patch News – 2023

Hi Everyone,

After 28 years of offering family fun at the Pumpkin Patch, we have decided it’s time to slow down and begin our journey into retirement.

With this change we will no longer be charging admission, nor offering tractor rides, camp fire rentals or entertainment activities.

Each fall moving forward we are returning to our traditional roots of simply offering pick your own apples & pumpkins, providing we have good crops.

We will still be open for food at our Apple Jack’s at the Patch restaurant year round.

Madness Haunted Farm will still be here and open from mid September through October, so be sure to check out their website for details!

We will be posting additional information on our Facebook page, so please feel free to follow us there!

We would like to thank everyone that chose our place for their fall family fun! We are blessed.

Sincerely,

Tarry, Jan, Tyler, Nick & Sarah & and all of our incredible friends that helped us, we couldn’t have done it without you!

What We Do

Pumpkins

Pumpkins grown here on our farm are great for carving and making pies. We primarily grow Howden which are the large pumpkins and various pie pumpkins which are used for decoration or as pie pumpkins.

We also grow Acorn & Butternut squash. Though we aim for a good crop each year there are years that mother nature posses a challenge. So be sure to check our website for the current year crop status.

Apples

At our orchard we grow the classic favorites such as Red Delicious, Jonathan, Mackintosh & Fuji. Hopefully they meet your snacking, baking, or making cider needs.

We also press and sell our own apple cider here on the farm too.

Again, though we aim for a good crop each year, there are years that mother nature posses a challenge. So be sure to check our website for the current year apple crop status.

Apple Jacks Restaurant

Join us for a tasty dinner here on our farm just south of Council Bluffs.

Cheese Burger, Philly Beef & Chicken, Tacos, Pork Tenderloins and more!

We are open Wednesday, Thursday, Friday & Saturday from 4 pm until 9 PM at the restaurant. We occasionally take some time off to just sit and watch the corn grow, apples and pumpkins too, so be sure to checkout our facebook page to make sure we’re open!

About Us

We bought our small farm just south of Council Bluffs in 1994 and moved into the existing old farmhouse which was built in 1890. We planted 627 apple trees in 1995 & 1996 and started building our current home ourselves as well. We also began selling pumpkins and apples as Pioneer Trail Orchard & Pumpkin Patch in 1995. Our children are, Tyler, Nick, and Sarah, have grown up working on the farm and have learned the value of hard work and entrepreneurship. Each year the surrounding community enjoys visiting the orchard as well as to stop out to our Apple Jacks restaurant which is open throughout the year.

“Don’t be in a hurry to achieve your dreams. Take a day to play with your kids and relax – your dreams will still be there tomorrow.”
