Over 100 acres of farm are here for you to explore when you visit Munson Farms. In addition to pumpkins, they specialize in sweet corn, tomatoes and peaches. Pick your pumpkin from the patch or grab one that's already been picked for you. Hay rides and a corn maze are other attractions here.
75th and Valmont
Family owned and operated since 1949, this farm has got the pumpkin game down. During the fall harvest, everyone takes a tractor ride to the fields with stops along the way to pick their own vegetables. They’ll get the fun and educational experience of putting their hands in the dirt and the rewarding benefit of picking fresh produce to take home to their families. They have a giant “Croc-pit” (imagine thousands and thousands of chopped-up Crocs in a giant pile-o-fun), corn maze, kids play areas, antique tractors, peddle tractors, a hay pyramid, farm animals, and a unique collection of oddities and activities.
