The raspberry donuts we got were so fresh, they were still warm!

What to Know Before you Go to a Pumpkin Patch in Salem Oregon

Check the website

Always check the websites to confirm current open hours and upcoming events! These pumpkin patches are all working farms. Poor weather, or high demand, may cause the harvest events to end early.

@dinkumtribe This was a ton of fun! You get to slingshot apples (the ones that aren’t suitable for sale) and aim for the trees, targets and a couple old beat up trucks. Kids LOVED it! @dinkumtribe @dinkumtribe @dinkumtribe #appleblaster #appleslingshot #appleslinging #funatthefarm #autumnfun #fallfestival #harvestfun #pnwharvest #pnwfarms #oregonfarmer #oregonorchards #traveloregon #oregonexplored #bestfarm ♬ Rattlin Bog (Album Version) – The Irish Descendants

Call ahead for specific items

Call ahead if you want a specific kind of produce, pumpkin, or item. The phone number listed on the website or Facebook page will give you the quickest answer to your farm question, and you might save yourself a trip by checking ahead.

Sometimes demand exceeds supply, especially towards the end of the season – some pumpkin patches closed a week early in 2021 because they sold out of pumpkins.

Dress for the weather

Wear clothes appropriate to the weather. You are visiting a farm, so if the weather has been wet, mud is guaranteed!

Pumpkins in a field on a foggy day.
A foggy or cloudy day at the pumpkin patch is standard for Oregon.

Crowd control

Weekends are going to be incredibly busy at the farms, and you will be in closer contact with people. If you have low immunity or if your kids have sensory issues, it may be best to visit on a weekday when things are quieter.

On the other hand, live music and many events may only be available on weekends, so decide which is more important to you before visiting.

Support Local Farms after Pumpkin Season

Many of these farms have additional agri-tourism events through December. It’s not uncommon for a pumpkin patch to also have Christmas trees or wreaths available in November and December. Ask at the farm, and make a plan to come back for your Christmas tree or holiday-baked goods and local craftsman gifts!

Family with Christmas tree at a Christmas tree farm. Many of the pumpkin patches in the Salem, Oregon area double as Christmas tree farms.

And while you’re thinking about Christmas activities, we highly recommend visiting the Silverton Christmas Market! It’s a favorite holiday event in the Salem, Oregon area.

We’d love to hear from you if you have a favorite pumpkin patch in Salem Oregon! Tell us which one you recommend and why in the comments.

  1. This is the first time I’ve heard about pumpkin patches in Salem Oregon and they all sound so cool! Great to know there are great things to do at and around these pumpkin patches as well. Such a nice activity for the whole family!

    1. It’s definitely worth seeing both – we love the fall colors and farm activities here in Oregon!

    1. I never realized that you don’t have pumpkin patches in Australia! The colors are definitely a highlight for me too.

  2. You have so many great options for pumpkin patches!! I haven’t been to one in ages but I loved going with my family when I was younger. Also I’ve never heard of a raspberry donut but that sounds delicious!

    1. They were new for us too, and I was a bit suspicious of the raspberry donuts too until we tried them.

  3. What a helpful post for enjoying fall near Salem, Oregon! We love PNW pumpkin patches north of you and these all look like fantastic choices! Thanks for all of the tips for visiting local farms.

  4. I love the time of year for visits to pumpkin patches. And the wide variety in pumpkin colours and sizes. A great way to find local food products around Salem. Donuts seem to be a favourite treat. Lots of options for great pumpkin patches around Salem.

  5. Wow, all these pumpkin patches near Salem look wonderful! We live in the Portland area and are always down to drive a bit for a great pumpkin patch. Thank you for sharing these! Can’t wait to eat one of those raspberry donuts!

    1. Oregon has some beautiful pumpkin patches and farms. I’ve been to a few closer to Portland too.

  6. Going to pumpkin patches is one of my favourite things to do in the fall time. It’s great that there are so many around Salem to visit!

  7. So jealous that there are so many options in Salem! I will have to visit one day… Also, I love that most of them offer other activities as well, so I could easily spend an entire day there. As I enjoy those raspberry donuts haha

    1. I was impressed with the sheer number of options as well – pumpkin patches are far more common here in the Salem area than I expected.

  8. One that you might also look at – Heiser’s Pumpkin Patch in Grand Island/Dayton area (about 30 mins North of Salem). Closed the past few years due to Covid, but planning to be open this year. Corn maze, petting zoo, pumpkin cannon, hay rides and lots of fun for the family.https://www.heiserfarms.com

    1. We are fairly recent to the PNW too, and I’m sure you’ll find so many amazing places like we have!

  9. Salem has always been a bucket list location for me! Now I know what time of the year is perfect to visit! Pumpkin patch time! Thanks for sharing with us!
