Pumpkin Patch Extravaganza

Pumpkin Patch Extravaganza

Hello Reader,

Sunday my Aunt and I took the little man to the Fischer’s Croix Farm Orchard pumpkin patch here in Hasting. This is my son’s second halloween but the first one that he will be celebrating because last year he was a little over a month old.  I have to say the pumpkin patch was definitely something I want to do every year now. The place has so much to offer and the people that run it are very friendly and helpful. A great experience for the whole family!

Anyway about our pumpkin patch extravaganza. We started by just wandering around, checking everything out. We walked looking at pumpkins, apple trees, the beautiful area around us and even saw a bunch of turkeys.


Our extravaganza onto the corn maze that we preceded to get lost in for almost forty-five minutes. I was so happy when we finally made out of there because the front tire on my stroller was completely flat and it was almost impossible to push it through the mud.


After walking back from the corn maze my son was able to play on the wooden train they had there next to the little petting zoo.


After that I turned him loose in a patch of pumpkin they had sitting out for guest to pick from.


The extravaganza didn’t end there though, the wonderful people who put all this together also had an area set up for guest to take memorable photographs of their pumpkin patch experience.



Our day at the pumpkin patch was almost over but we had to take a seat in their lawn chairs to enjoy the beautiful view before our little group headed off to target for pumpkin painting supplies.


So, if you are ever around Hastings MN this time of year keep in mind that Fischer’s Croix Farm Orchard is definitely an experience the whole family should have!

That’s about all I have time for today but I hope you all will be back tomorrow and I’d love you hear from you. Questions, comments or ideas.

Thank you for reading, now go get your mom on!
