When it comes to "fall festivities" in the Treasure Valley, what comes to mind? Haunted attractions, coffee shops, or pumpkin patches?
We're lucky to have several of all of those things in the Treasure Valley-- yet, one of the "oldest" and most authentic pumpkin patch experiences is actually in Nampa. Here's a look:
We love Wissel Farms because they've been a local, Idaho business since 1911!
Not only is Wissel Farms a place that has seen thousands of families visit for produce for years--but they're a place that continues to offer opportunities to the community, as members themselves.
We get it--there are a LOT of halloween and "fall" attractions in the Treasure Valley this year, but locally owned and operated Wissel Farms is a little different. You won't find flashy billboards driving a mile-long line for admittance to their doorstep.
What you WILL find is a family run farm with arguably the best pumpkin selection in the State of Idaho. Not only can you go out and pick your own--but the farm offers FREE hayrides for kids, families, and dates alike to get the full farm experience.
If you're someone who grew up in the area, perhaps you recall the magic of field trips out to Wissel Farms each fall. For many in the Nampa area especially, this is a cherished tradition--and it's something everyone should experience.
As the farm shared on their Facebook page:
FREE hayrides are available for the pumpkin patch DAILY, from 9:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. and you can find Wissel Farms at the corner of Lake Lowell and Middleton Road, in Nampa.
