No October is complete without a trip – or two or three – to the pumpkin patch. Here are three of Olympus at the District’s favorites in and around South Jordan.
A family farm with roots dating back to 1884, Mabey Farms in South Jordan has long been a local favorite. With more than 45 varieties of pumpkins in all colors, shapes, and sizes, this 16-acre farm is sure to set you up with an impressive haul. Check out the patch through Oct. 31.
Petersen Family Farm
For a full day of fun, Petersen Family Farm in Riverton is a sound choice. Beyond its vast selection of pumpkins, this long-established farm features a variety of other offerings – wagon rides, old-fashioned popcorn, and the potentially cathartic apple slingshot. The pumpkin patch is open through Oct. 31, so be sure to plan your visit soon.
A day of adventure at the pumpkin patch? Why not? Schmidt’s Farm in West Jordan reimagines the traditional pumpkin patch experience with its lineup of activities, including a slide and zip line! Yes, please. Other attractions include straw mountain, hay bale maze, corn pit, apple launcher, I-Spy, and the ever-glorious goat tower. There are even hay wagon rides on select nights. Visit before the patch shuts down on Oct. 31.
