Four generations of the Schilter family have called the farm home. From a dairy farm to today’s pumpkin patch, the Schilter Family Farm has grown into a major agritourism attraction in the Nisqually Valley.
With two pumpkin patches plump for the picking, a visit to Schilter Family Farm can be an all-day adventure. Before heading out to the pumpkin patch to find your choice for this year’s Jack-o-lantern, explore the family farm.

Open every day except Tuesdays through Oct. 30, Schilter Family Farm also offers a dining menu, including apple donuts and cider.
Thomasson Family Farm – Enumclaw
A hayride to the pumpkin patch may be the mission, but a trip to Thomasson Family Farm in Enumclaw involves so much more than just this year’s gourd. Your farm admission includes visiting farm animals, exploring the corn maze, tractor train rides, basketball, foosball, corn hole, giant Jenga and so much more!
The Thomasson Family Farm’s pumpkin patch and field is also dog-friendly, although that’s the only dog-friendly area at the farm.

Located outside Redmond, Serres Farm is a true small family farm, but don’t let looks deceive you. There are plenty of pumpkins of all kinds of varieties, waiting to be picked from the field and taken home to become this year’s Jack-o-lanterns, pumpkin pie, and maybe even a few pumpkin bars.

Puyallup may be home to the Washington State Fair, but it’s also home to Picha Farm, site of great pumpkin harvests and fall celebrations. Navigate your way through the corn maze before jumping on a hay ride to the pumpkin patch. If you can answer eight trivia questions throughout the maze, you’ll receive a free mini pumpkin for your hard work!

The Huntting’s Pumpkin Patch and Haunted Forest- Cinebar
Imagine navigating your way through a Halloween forest to find this year’s pumpkin. Ok, maybe it’s not quite like that, but at The Huntting’s Pumpkin Patch and Haunted Forest in Cinebar you can enjoy a hayride to the pumpkin patch to find your future Jack-o-lantern and then stay until dark and venture through the Halloween (not haunted) forest on weekends.

Colville Corn Maze and Pumpkin Patch – Colville
Colville Corn Maze and Pumpkin Patch seeks to provide an old-fashioned pumpkin picking experience. Head to the field to search for giant pumpkins, or perhaps you prefer a smaller one. Before you do, however, navigate your way through the 12-acre corn maze.
Using a fresh design annually, the corn maze offers a fun, casual path. The Colville Corn Maze and Pumpkin Patch has been a local favorite since 2009. You can buy tickets at the gate with a credit card or cash. Pets are not allowed in the maze or pumpkin patch.

Beck’s Harvest House – Green Bluff
Beck’s is one of the most famous farms on Green Bluff, and for good reason – all roads lead straight to Beck’s! It means Beck’s can get pretty crowded, especially on the weekends, but it’s such a fun time for families.
Beck’s Fall Festival runs from September 23 to October 29, 2023, and you can enjoy a giant corn maze, pumpkin patch, homemade pies, drinks on the outdoor patios, and so much more. You’ll want to buy your tickets and parking ahead of time, and try to go in one big group car if you can, because parking gets difficult as the day goes on.
Walter’s Fruit Ranch – Green Bluff
More off the beaten path than Beck’s, Walter’s Fruit Ranch still gets super busy during its fall festival! Walter’s is a ton of fun though, with its fantastic Press Plate Bar (signature drinks, beers, or wines), pumpkin patch, orchard cafe, barnyard play area for the kids, caramel apple booth, and so much more.
We went to Walter’s last year for their fall festival and had an absolute blast. Yes, you may have to park pretty far out, so bring your walking shoes, patience, and prepare to have a good time! The weather is perfect during fall, so it’s a great time to hang out with friends, celebrate fall, and get some apples or apple cider for the road.
Siemers Farm – Green Bluff
Siemers Farm is another great place to enjoy pumpkin patches in Washington state! Siemers Fall Festival takes place this September 23 to October 29.
In addition to their tractor-driven tour into the pumpkin patch (where you get out and find the perfect pumpkin for you!), Siemers offers lots of food options, drinks, play space for the kids, holiday market vendors, and more.
You can buy your wristband ahead of time online here. When we went to Siemers fall festival last year, we had a blast! It was just different enough from the other fall festivals to make the drive worth it, and it was fun to do some holiday shopping at the same time.
Middleton Farms – Pasco
While pumpkins may be the main draw, imagine being encouraged to “get lost” in a corn maze. But, that’s exactly what Middleton Farms wants you to do! This year’s corn maze theme is Mario – you won’t want to miss it!
In addition to the corn maze, you can also enjoy a hayride around the fields to grab your favorite pumpkin, enjoy delicious food, and take home autumn decor. Middleton Farms Fall Festival is one of the biggest fall events in the Tri-Cities, so make sure to get your tickets ahead of time!
