The first time I went to Siegel’s Pumpkin Farm was 5 years ago with my family and teenagers.  We had such a good time especially getting lost in the maze.  I couldn’t wait to visit again with my toddler and experience some of the other activities that Siegel’s has to offer.

Siegel’ Cottonwood Farm Pumpkin Fest is a 4th generation real operating family farm.  The best thing is most of the attractions are included with general admission.

Family Fun 411 was invited as complimentary guest of Siegel’s Pumpkin Farm, all opinions are completely my own based on my experience.


Straw Mountain.  Children and adults can enjoy climbing and playing on a huge straw mountain.

Corn Maze. Siegel’s Pumpkin Farm is known for one of the largest corn mazes.  It is a 12-acre maze be sure to pay the $1 and get the map.  After our 2015 experience with the maze we decided to do the Spookley Corn Maze a smaller 2-acre maze which is more suited for a toddler. 

Ghost Town Railroad.  With a toddler fascinated with trains we never pass up an opportunity to ride the train. 

Hayrack Rides.  The traditional hayride takes you to the pumpkin field where you can pick your pumpkin right from the vine.

J.D. Grain Train.  Siegel’s Pumpkin Farm is not short on rides.  We really enjoyed the 10-car tractor that pulls you through the corn.

Lexi’s Jumbo Jumpin Pillows.  The largest jumping trampoline I’ve ever seen.  Two large jumping pillows that you’ll have to pull children away from.

Mia & Miley’s Mountain Slide.  This huge mountain slide is 150 ft the tallest the Midwest. 

Scrap Yard Shoot Out.  This was a fun paintball shooting game that will appeal to the older kids.  It is not included in the general admission ticket.

Tee-Ball Challenge.  Kids can test their batting skills.

Fly’n Founder’s Trolley Lines.  A zip line for kids and adults.

There are several themed playgrounds all around the farm.  They all have different themes and unique features.  The Barnyard Playland has a 6’ climbing wall and 4 slides.  Kaden’s Birdie Barraks has little birdhouses connected by a swinging rope bridge with tunnel slides.

Zach’s Farm Animals

Farm animals are perfect for little kids.  My toddler loves hearing the animal sounds.  I even got startled by the loud “Moo”.  Check out the pot belly pig, goats, llamas, cows, sheep, and the baby chicks.  There is feed available for purchase.

Photo Ops

There are plenty of great photo ops perefect for the obligatory social media posting. There is the iconic Giant Rocking Chair and Maddie’s Web which  I’m sure this large spider web crawler if for playing but the photos are so cute.

Food & Beverage

Siegel’s Pumpkin Farm has plenty of food options, so come ready to eat!  All the classics including pulled pork and smoked turkey legs.  I really enjoyed the Bucket of Cheese Fries.  Do not miss the Apple Cider Donuts, they are smaller than standard donuts but don’t let that fool you.  These donuts are delicious.  Very light and perfect when warm.  Beer and wine are also available on the weekends.  We bought an Apple Carmel Walnut pie to take home, we only bought a half pie and quickly regretted we didn’t purchase a whole pie. 

Siegel’s Pumpkin Farm is full of fun attractions that will entertain everyone in the family. Plan to spend several hours with your family and eat your fill of apple cider donuts and bring home a pumpkin you picked.
