The fall season and Halloween just don’t seem complete without a trip to a pumpkin patch. We have friends in Las Vegas who, in a town with no legitimate pumpkin patches, take their kids to the make-shift patches in commercial parking lots just to let their kids have the chance to experience fall and pick their own pumpkin. It’s tradition, right?
We love our St. George tradition of going out to a fully functioning farm, Staheli Farm in Washington Utah, picking out pumpkins and enjoying an entire evening of activities. The weather now is just starting to get crisp enough in the evenings that you can justify a nice cup of hot chocolate to go along with the activities.
Here are some of the things you can do:
- The Corn Maze: Great for all ages.
- The Field of Screams: In our experience—not great for younger kids (or weak knee-ed parents)
- Pumpkin Patch
- Farmland: Games, jumping pillow, petting zoo, pony rides, playground—the little kids can spend hours here
We’ve found it’s a great place to take some family pictures as well. Go enjoy Staheli Farm and check out their website. They have facilities for group activities and other events throughout the year.
Directions: The Farm is located in Washington Fields. 3400 Washington Fields Road, Washington, Utah. Click here for detailed instructions on how to drive there.
(And I have to give them an extra shout out for all that they do for the local elemetary schools. They host classes and classes and classes of elemetary school children who go and learn about what happens on an actual live farm. Thanks for your generosity!)
