If you’re looking for some fall entertainment for your family, the Great Oregon Pumpkin Patch and Corn Maze will delight old and young alike.
(JEFFERSON) - The Great Oregon Pumpkin Patch and Corn Maze Company in Jefferson was established in 2004 and provides family focused entertainment. The farm is owned and operated by Iverson Family Farms.
Iverson Family Farms is a diversified agricultural operation. They cultivate a variety of crops on their 3000 acres. Crops include grass seed, vegetables, tulips and daffodils.
Iverson Family Farms has also presented the Woodburn Tulip Festival for 21 years. The Pumpkin Patch and Corn Maze is their specialty. The pumpkin patch and corn maze brought in approximately four thousand visitors in 2004 and ten thousand in 2005.
The Corn Maze is a must visit.
As the name suggests, there is also a pumpkin patch. You may want to plan on setting aside a little time for this.
There is a vast field of mostly pumpkins with different gourds sprinkled about. There are so many “perfect pumpkins” that it is hard to narrow any down. Kids in certain age groups get to take a pumpkin from the patch free. There are big ones in there, but you have to be able to carry them out. Pumpkins are for sale as well and they are willing to give you a deal on your favorites.
There is no shortage of fall artillery. The pumpkin cannon will grab your attention. It shoots pumpkins out of it into a large field with a van in the middle as target. There is also a corn launcher and paint ball targets.
Great activities for the little kids include: tractor cart rides, tricycle races, an animal petting area, water churn races, hay rides and of course the pumpkin patch.
If you’re looking for some fall entertainment for your family, the Great Oregon Pumpkin Patch and Corn Maze will delight old and young alike. The pumpkin patch also hosts field trips and birthday celebrations.
