A few years ago a coworker of mine told me about Bishops Pumpkin Patch in Wheatland and ever since then we have gone. It is by far the BEST pumpkin patch around!! I can only think of two downfalls; the food “stores” and coyote mountain. Each food store sells a different item, which means if you want a corndog and fries you have to stand in two different lines. I’m really not sure why they would set it up like this. Who would want to eat a corndog and not fries? Not me, bring on the lard! As for coyote mountain; this is an area with two slides, one 50ft and another 30ft. All very cute, but I’m not going to pay $4 a kid to go down a slide. No matter if it’s unlimited!
Now to the reason’s why it’s the BEST pumpkin patch; free tree house slide, free barn play area, free pig races, free petting zoo, free hay ride, and a free puppet show (even though it’s a little creepy). Now do you see why it’s the best? FREE, FREE, FREE! They also have a huge selection of pumpkins. You can either take the hayride out to find your special one or grab one on your way out. And I can’t forget their apple cider, DELICIOUS!
As always, the kids had a blast! This year their cousin Tyler and buddy Carter joined us. It’s amazing how will kids can get along when they are enjoying themselves. :)
