Fall festivities have always included a visit to the pumpkin patch. There are plenty of farms in the greater Washington area, but if students can’t go far, there are two local pumpkin patches to go to.

Dusty’s Nursery & Company

Besides the pumpkins themselves, students can also go through a free corn maze with the size reaching roughly an acre-long. With a variety of pumpkins like warty, ghost, cinderella, blue, sugar pies and the regular orange carver

Closest to campus, Dusty’s Nursery & Company can be located at 1116 E Mountain View Ave and is open from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Monday-Saturday and 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. on Sunday’s. Dusty’s also has corn stalks, fall flowers, along with a gift shop in their 120 year-old barn  with many different seasonal items.

Dusty’s Nursery & Company, the first barn quilt location in Kittitas County, has the fall fun you could be looking for. 

The Patch

Not only about the pumpkin experience, The Patch, previously known as Jensen Farms but now Huffman Farms, has plenty to offer as well. With a new name but the same farming family, this 36-acre farm has much to offer for the public.

The Patch is located at 6181 Wilson Creek Rd, which is open from Thursday to Sunday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. With activities such as hayrides, corn maze, petting zoo to a kid’s zone, trike course and life sized pool. The patch has much to offer for everyone, with admission to certain activities.
