Harvest Festival
Through October 31, 2018
EZ Orchards, Salem, OR

October in Oregon is a magical time of year! Each October the Market and Farm pull together to host you at our HarvestFest! This time of year brings a new meaning to "hustle and bustle!" Fresh apples and pears arrive from our orchards daily and the pumpkin patch and corn maze are ready for visitors. Our store is still full of great local foods, as well as a large number of fun decorations, packaged foods, and fall gift items.

Harvest Festival

Bauman Farms, Gervais, OR

With so many fun things to do where do you start? This year there are more than 25 activities for kids of all ages. The farm is transformed into an activity center with mazes, obstacle courses, giggle-worthy rides, oodles of farm animals and memories-a-plenty! Plan on spending the day with us for Fall Family Fun….All Day Long!

Pumpkin Patch, Pig Races, Mazes & More!
October 6-31, 2018
French Prairie Gardens, St. Paul, OR

The crisp fall air means it is time for some family fun at our pumpkin patch. Fall on the farm is much more than just pumpkins, we have animal feeding, giant slides, a corn maze, a hay maze, and a farm ninja challenge! There is so much to do for all in the family it’s hard to believe there could be a favorite, but the event everyone talks about is our Pigtucky Derby. The derby is our famous pig races! The pumpkin patch event runs over 4 weeks from October 6 to October 31st. Farm Fun Wristbands are available for purchase and cover all of the activities to experience.
