One of the things I enjoyed the most about living in Portland, Oregon is going to the pumpkin patches each fall. Somehow I lived my entire life without knowing about pumpkin patches. Now that I know there’s no going back. Lucky for us, around Portland there are tons to choose from including the Sauvie Island Pumpkin Patch.
Sauvie Island Pumpkin Patch
They have a u-pick pumpkin patch. Unlike some of the area farms these pumpkins are not brought in. They are grown on site on the farm. During other months they have other things available for U-pick like berries and flowers.
Strawberries ~ June 1st – 20th
Raspberries ~ June – July
Marionberries ~ June – July
Blueberries ~ June -August
Blackberries (Thornless) ~ July-August
U-cut Flowers ~ August – September
Peaches ~ August
Nectarines ~ August
Tomatoes ~ September
Pumpkins ~ Late September & October
Something unique about this one is the cow train the kids get to ride. The cow train takes you on a tour of the farm every Saturday and Sunday in October from 10 AM – 5:45 PM.
Farm Fresh Market
They have an on-site market where you can purchase farm fresh products. They have over 50 vegetables and fruit they grow on the farm, plus pasture raised, all natural, grass-fed beef.
During the Pumpkin Patch and summer months is the animal barn. It’s officially open from June – October, daily 9AM – 6PM. Here you can meet farm animals like turkeys, goats, and chickens.
