The Wild Pumpkin: Fall Fun for the Whole Family

It’s time to trade in the beach balls for pumpkins, the lemonade for apple cider, and the ice cream for donuts! It’s fall and there is so much to be excited about! The Wild Pumpkin in Beaverton is open and in full swing this fall season. After a rough last season they are open and ready for business. Owner Lori Hedrick explains, “Last year we were open six days and our pumpkin barn burnt to the ground. We had a lot of rain… Mother Nature was not good to us, but we got through the year and built our new barn this spring and we are up and running!”

The community rallied behind the Hedricks and helped them stay in business last season. “People stopped in, offered their tents, people offered us their pumpkins out of their pumpkin patch and fields we even had 2 little girls who baked us cupcakes and brought them to the farm and wanted to raise money to build this farm,” says Lori.

Rain or shine, the Wild Pumpkin is the perfect place to spend the afternoon. Admission is $5 dollars and includes all activities. Lori says, “That includes the animal petting farm, a wagon ride, 10 acre corn maze, a straw maze, mega slides, playground and the corn box.

The Hedricks are also known around town for their iconic donuts. “We make a lot of donuts every day. On the weekend we make over 7,000 donuts a day,” explains Lori.

The Wild Pumpkin is open through Oct. 30th. Monday-Friday from 12-7 pm and on Saturdays and Sundays from 10-7 pm.
