Bauman Farms Pumpkin Patch

On one of the days where it wasn't a torrential downpour outside, we seized the somewhat sunny weather and made our way to the pumpkin patch. Maisie had been asking about it for weeks and was so excited to pick out a pumpkin. Oh and take a spin on the tractor for the hay ride (she loved it of course). Maisie went without a nap that day so she started to get pretty cranky and demanding towards the end, so it was a fairly short trip, but still fun nonetheless.

Maisie made friends with the ducks and geese (surprise, surprise right?) and also fed the goats and sheep. I was happy to see she wasn't as leery of the barnyard animals as she was last trip

Other highlights? The hazelnut house- a little wooden house filled with hazelnuts that kids can jump in. Also the corn box, same concept as the hazelnut house, but with corn. Maisie was in sensory-play heaven.

She's been asking about going back, but I think we need to hit our other favorite pumpkin patches around Portland before Halloween. Hopefully the weather allows it!


  1. Yes you do. You need to hit some pumpkin patches up here with us. I super support this plan.
