Fabio Farms Harvest Festival
Located in the East Columbia neighborhood of Portland just south of the river, Fabio Farms offers a host of enjoyable activities as part of their annual Harvest Festival, including a giant corn maze, a hay bale maze, and hayrides. Pick up a few pumpkins from the homegrown pumpkin patch or stop by the produce stand to pick up some other farm-fresh produce to take home. You can also stop by the snack shack to pick up some fall treats to munch on as you make your way through the corn maze, like popcorn, cider, and candy.
Plumper Pumpkin Patch & Tree Farm
The Plumper Pumpkin Patch & Tree Farm is located in the northwest corner of the city, tucked away from the busy downtown streets. Beyond picking for pumpkins, guests will have a chance to run around the farm’s endless activities, including pony rides, tube slides, a kid-sized hobbit playhouse, hay mazes, and farm playgrounds. Visitors of all ages will have a blast playing with the farm’s apple cannons and pumpkin cannons by shooting produce at targets. The farm animals are available for guests to visit, including goats, pigs, cows, bunnies, and more. The farm’s kitchen cooks up fresh mini donuts, caramel apples, and corn on the cob. Farm admission is $12/person, with an additional fee for select activities.
Sauvie Island Pumpkin Patch
The Pumpkin Patch on Sauvie Island is one of the oldest operating pumpkin patches in Portland, and they’ve got plenty to offer to visiting families. Guests can visit the animal barn to see the farm’s variety of animals, climb on the massive hay pyramid, or hop on a free hayride to tour around the farm. The site also features an enormous corn maze, a cozy gift shop, and, of course, the pumpkin patch! Stop by the Patio Cafe for lunch, where you can pick up a simple fall snack, like a candy apple or elephant ear, or get something heartier, like one of the cafe’s selections of burgers and sandwiches. Grownups can even pick up a glass of beer or a latte!
Bushue’s Family Farms
Bushue’s Family Farms is located in Boring, OR, about a half-hour outside of the city of Portland, but the short drive is worth it for fall lovers. The farm offers a massive corn trail, farm animal tour, and private hayrides. Kids can enjoy the farm’s pig train rides, the Pumpkin Playland outdoor playground, and the hay slide. The farm’s snack stand offers a variety of treats, including fresh mini donuts, hot apple cider, and frozen apple cider slushies.
Hoffman Farms Store
A few minutes to the southwest of Portland in Beaverton lies the Hoffman Farms Store, a beautiful picturesque destination for any family wishing to celebrate the harvest season. Come take a ride on the Scholls Valley Railroad, a farm tour in a miniature train, or walk through the farm’s corn maze. The farm also features a sweet farm store and a playground for the little ones. Take a visit over the weekend to experience the farm’s live music and events, or grab a bite to eat at the Farmhouse Kitchen BBQ Food Truck.
