Kuipers Pumpkin Farm has all the fall festival fun with the bonus of a free U-Pick pumpkin.  We filled up our time completely at the pumpkin farm but Kuipers also offers apple picking and towards the end of the season offers a discount for both experiences.  What I like most about Kuipers is that it is a big open area with plenty of room for children to run around. 



There is ample parking however a parking attendant would be helpful.  A crossing guard to help guest get across the street from the apple picking to the pumpkin farm would ensure safety. 


Standard fair food is available to purchase at a reasonable price.  I highly recommend the apple cider donuts and apple cider slushie.  A food truck selling barbeque is on-site during certain hours.

Kuipers Corn Maze

Every true pumpkin farm boast of their corn maze.  This five-acre maze does not disappoint. 

Pig Races

Pig Races at the top of each hour.  This is truly a don’t miss event.  Get a seat a couple minutes early especially upfront if you have little ones.  Four pigs’ race around a track several times.  It is utterly ridiculous and a lot of fun.

Petting Zoo

The petting zoo is up close and personal.  A large area that you can walk around and interact with the sheep, pigs, and goats.  You can buy small feed for $1. 

Scary Fun

Haunted Forest & Jed’s Scream Shed.  Didn’t experience this firsthand since I was with my toddler, but I heard that the haunted shed is scary and does not disappoint.

Pumpkin Picking

U-Pick Pumpkin.  Take a wagon or a wheelbarrow out to the fields and pick a pumpkin right of the vine.   There is a washing station to clean your pumpkin the two closest to the patch get crowded and muddy.  I suggest using the cleaning station by the entrance.

Box-O-Kernals.  My son had a fun playing with corn kernels.  It is a much cleaner giant sandbox.
