Guide to Rocky Hollow Pumpkin Patch with Kids

Kent and Kaye Dyer purchased over 90 acres of family land a few years back, then spent the next few years wondering what to do with it. They built a venue for weddings, but it wasn’t until she saw families enjoying time together at a pumpkin patch that Kaye found her true vision for their land: a pumpkin patch where children around the area, including their own grandchildren, could come to both play and learn!

  • Shoes: If you’re planning to actually pick a pumpkin from the patch (there are several to choose from up front that are already ready to go), wear close-toed shoes. Otherwise, have your child wear shoes that are easy to slip on and off for the various activities…but bring socks! The farm is spacious, so adults would benefit from wearing good walking shoes as well.
  • Restrooms: There is a restroom in the covered pavilion called the “Learning Barn” which also has picnic tables
  • Strollers: The land is somewhat sloped and a little rocky  (hence the name Rocky Hollow). Strollers with larger rubber wheels (think jogging stroller) would work. Wagons are available for use throughout the land at no charge.IMG_3691
  • Bring: Though temps should be cooling off, it may still be a good idea to bring water.

 

Tips for the Farm:

  • For Sale: After walking through a scenic covered bridge, you may want start at the “General Store,” complete with trendy wooden signs, decorative Indian corn, mums in a variety of colors, and old-fashioned candy for sale.

  • Pumpkins: Unlike some, this pumpkin patch actually has a pick-able pumpkins in a variety of sizes and colors (white, tiny, and “camo” green)!  If you plan to look on the vine, ask upon entering where to find the variety for which you are looking. Pumpkin prices are very affordable. Many good carving pumpkins were in the $5 range.

  • Photo Ops: There are several spots for great Fall pictures around the farm. Dress the kids accordingly and bring your DSLR if you’re that type.

  • Activities: Your price of admission includes all activities. (It does not include concessions or pumpkins.) Ages 3-8 would likely have the most fun, though there are activities for all ages.

(This can get warm, so bring socks! Weight limit ~250 pounds)IMG_3688Animal barn with this adorable goat, lots of chickens, ducks, goats, a lamb, a potbelly pig (named Peaches), and two mini houses: Rusty & Midnight!

There is also a corn maze, photo op spots, and bubbles (on the weekends).

The newest 2020 addition is a zip line that will be available soon!

The land was open and spacious, but the crowds were few, making my experience (visiting alone with three young children in tow) low stress. It certainly helped that Kaye and her family were so welcoming.

 

It’s definitely worth your time to give Rocky Hollow a try!

 

**Attention School Groups:** Kaye is a retired teacher, and has created a Pumpkin Patch STEM lesson to be taught ahead of time with an activity at the Education Barn when you’re there! Contact her at (256) 475-3030 for more information.

    • Kristin, there is a covered picnic area with restrooms and sinks. They were putting them in last year, so aren’t too old. I’m not sure about the restrooms by the big “pillow” and car track though.

    • Kristin, the bathrooms are close to the pumpkin patch. Last year there were ports potties by the petting zoo, cars, and bouncing pillow. There is a little walk from that area to the “indoor” plumbing bathrooms, but it is doable.

  1. My daughter got married here this time last year. Have not been to the pumpkin patch but definitely want to go it looks like loads of fun and of course take my grandkids.

  2. This place looks SO cute and looks like tons of fun! I havent been to a pumpkin patch since I was in primary school but this would be a super fun date idea for sure! I hope I get to come!

  3. My 5 grandkids are super excited to come to the farm! The hay ride, slide, and the pillow is what they are most excited about! I will just enjoy watching them have a good time!

  4. Love this pumpkin patch. Have gone the last 3 years. Lots for the kids to do and the prices are great. Please support our local businesses. The staff/owners are so helpful and friendly.

  5. This is our favorite pumpkin farm! The corn pit is my 18 month olds favorite and my 9 year old loves the big pedal cars. I love the fact they have live music and my husband loves the boiled peanuts

  6. This place definitely isn’t just for kids either! Super fun for adults, it brought out the “kid” in all of us! The staff throughout the pumpkin patch where all super nice! Even one of the ponies are friendly and try to give you sweet nibbles!!

  7. We are looking forward to visiting this weekend as a family this will be our first time coming to the farm. I can’t wait to pick pumpkins and see everything there is to do
