Pumpkin Patches in Southeast Idaho

Autumn is one of my favorite times of the year. It is the season for changing leaves, apple cider, cozy sweaters, haunted houses, and best of all, pumpkin patches. If you’re in the mood to get in the Autumn spirit, check out this list of the best pumpkin patches around southeast Idaho. Let’s get picking!

RC Acres

 

RC Acres is owned and ran by two parents and their eight children. This family-fun property not only allows you to hand-pick your own pumpkins, but they also offer several other activities for everyone to enjoy.

Activities:

  • Barrel Train Ride
  • Corn Pit
  • Pedal Go-Carts
  • Slide
  • Circle Roll
  • Corn Hole

They even have a Craft Barn for those who want to create DIY autumn crafts after a stroll in the pumpkin patch. This family business truly wants you to get the whole Fall experience.

RC Acres offers three different sizes of pumpkins this year. 

  • Large $8.00 
  • Medium $6.00
  • Small $4.00. 
  • You also have the option of picking specialty pumpkins (an additional $2.00 per size) and two Gourds for $1.00

U-Pick Red Barn

U-Pick Red Barn is the biggest pumpkin patch in Southeast Idaho and has been open for 12 years. It was first started by two 11 and 12-year-old boys, McNeil and Chase Walker, who wanted to create a place for people to come and pick pumpkins. McNeil has sadly since passed away, so Chase and the other owners have continued this incredible pumpkin patch in honor of him. 

This place is more than just a pumpkin patch, however, as it features tons of different activities to truly make your experience great.

Activities:

  • Pumpkin Cannons – These air cannons “shoot corn, pumpkins, potatoes, and water bottles” at 150 mph. Talk about exciting!
  • Jumper Pillows
  • Wagon – Grab a wagon as you enter to carry your pumpkins as you pick them. 
  • U-Pick Red Barn Train – This train is an activity everyone can enjoy, as it holds up to 50 passengers and circles around the patch.
  • Pedal Carts – Don’t want to walk? Pedal your way around the farm.
  • Old Tractor and Wagon Hayrides – After you ride the train, hop onto an old tractor or a wagon hayride to get the perfect view of the pumpkin patch.
  • Climb onto their giant straw pyramids and slide down their huge slide into a corn pit!
  • Kid’s Maze – Let your kids explore the maze and pet pheasants and chickens.
  • They also have a model train that you can see go around the track as well as baby kittens in the barn to snuggle.

Pricing:

If you just want to pick pumpkins, it’s free to enter! Pumpkins are sold at any size of three for $20 and five for $30. If you would just like to buy one pumpkin, they have individual prices inside as well. 

To do any of the standard activities, all you need is a wristband, which costs $5 for adults and is free for children ages 0-2. However, the wristbands do not include train rides or cannons.
