One of the best parts of living in Oregon is the phenomenal pumpkin patches we have to choose from during the fall. Our favorite pumpkin patch is Liepold Farms’ annual pumpkin patch east of Portland.
The Pumpkin Patch at Liepold Farms
Liepold Farms is located in the tiny town of Boring, Oregon about 20 – 30 minutes southeast of Portland, Oregon. It’s been there since 1952 and can be found at
14050 SE Richey Road
Boring, OR 97009
The pumpkin patch is open most days from 9-5 pm. Even on a sunny weekend day they enforce their hours.
It is a bit of a drive from Portland, but I feel like it is totally worth it. It is many local’s favorite pumpkin patches in the area because they have tons of family activities including a corn maze, hay maze, petting zoo, a pumpkin catapult, and more.
They always have an area set up where you can snap some family pictures. I’ve been taking the kids here since they were little, so it’s been fun to compare photos over the years taken in some of the same spots. You will notice that the kids are an assortment of ages throughout this post. We take photos in several spots. At the entrance, where you pull in to park, is always a nice setup and lots of families take photos there. Under the pavilion is another place where they usually have a nice set up for photos. That’s where I am sitting in the photo above. When you go for a hayride, you can ask a worker to snap a family photo. And of course, you can take photos in the pumpkins.
Kid’s Pavilion at Liepold Farms
There is a fun area that is perfect for younger kids that I am pretty sure they call the kid’s pavilion. It’s across from where you can see Jonah riding a tricycle in the main pavilion. You can see the petting zoo further back behind where they are pedaling around.
One of the most unique things you will find here is the corn box. Instead of a sandbox they have a box full of kernel corn for the kids to dig in. It’s great because instead of trying to get sand off the corn just falls away. All the fun with less mess!
They have a hay maze in the dark that the kids and adults can go through. They have to use a flashlight to see through it, because it is pitch black inside. Before you decide to do this with your kids, know that you may end up crawling through parts of the hay maze on your hands and knees.
Also found at the kids pavilion is a tiny little merry go round and a ball pit. Even if it’s raining you can still bring the kids out to do these activities because the entire pavilion is covered.
There is always a hayride and it’s covered, which is important since it’s almost always raining in Portland. A tractor pulls your family and other families around the farm for a fun ride. Sometimes halfway through they stop and give an educational lesson.
Every year there is an extensive corn maze. Halfway through there is a bridge and from there you can see super far. It’s another great spot to grab some photos. If you want to there is a game you can play. Along the way there are various spots to hole punch a card. If you manage to get all the punches you can enter to win a big prize. We have never managed in all of these years to ever get our cards completed!

Pumpkin and Apple Catapult
There is a pumpkin pull that kids tend to get a massive kick out of. They can launch apples or little pumpkins. They have targets set out way out in the field and if you happen to hit one you can get a prize.
