The Pumpkin Patch at Rondriso Farms
In October Rondriso Farms opens up its annual pumpkin patch. The farm offers a traditional pumpkin patch experience with a field and wagon hayride. There are also a few farm animals in the barn, like cows, that people can visit.
Wagon rides out to the pumpkin patch cost $3, in addition to $6 per person to enter the pumpkin patch. Folks can also walk the five-minute trail down to the field for just $5 but then have to carry their pumpkins back up (and some of those can get quite large). The farm also has carts that visitors can borrow to help carry the pumpkins. Very tiny kids also enjoy getting pulled by their parents in the carts.
Pumpkins at the farm range in price from between $1 and around $50. You can buy them from outside the store right by the road for those prices, or you can pick one up from the field.
Visitors who take the wagon ride down to the pumpkin patch get a piece of paper (which they’ll need later). People can stay at the pumpkin patch for as long as they want – to take photos and find the perfect pumpkin. When they are ready to head back up guests then hop back on the next wagon.
When you climb back on the wagon the driver of the tractor takes your paper, marks down the size of your pumpkin (so you know the price) and when you get back up to the store area you take your paper to a booth and pay then.
