A Visit to the Reno Pumpkin Patch
Since it’s the fall season, it’s the perfect time to schedule a visit to the pumpkin patch!! This past weekend Dylan’s family drove up to Reno and we decided to spend our Saturday afternoon playing in the corn maze!
Because of the great reviews of the Andelin Family Farm’s Pumpkin Patch out in Spanish Springs, we decided to give it a try. We drove out to their location, about 35 minutes from our house. But, unfortunately we didn’t end up staying.
Granted, it was a Saturday afternoon so we expected it to be crowded. But, we didn’t expect it to have such a long line, with a ticket price at the entrance! They were charging $7 per person just get through the door!
After talking with my friend today who happened to go to Andelin a few weekends ago, turns out they charge for more than just getting through the door! Even though there is a cover charge, there is an additional cost to do the corn maze, zombie hunting and buying pumpkins.
Because we were shocked at the price, we all packed back into the car and headed to Ferrari Farm’s.
Ferrari Farm’s is where I’ve always gone in Reno. It’s the cutest little Pumpkin Patch with tons of pumpkins and gourds. It also has a number of activities including a petting zoo, corn maze, corn walk, hay rides, bounce houses and zombie hunting.
And of course, it also has a number of picturesque spots for a fall photo shoot:
The newest little family member, Dominic, seemed to really enjoy the Pumpkin Patch! He spoke to the animals, ran around through the corn, and had a great time throwing the small pumpkins around!
To me, visiting the Pumpkin Patch is just part of fall and is a must-do tradition. Have you visited the Pumpkin Patch yet?
