disclaimer: Naturally “R” does not come after “D” in the alphabet but we decided to skip around a little for our Go. See. Do. project. We have some “E” and “F” adventures that we want to do but we probably won’t be able to until next summer (because of the snow) so we just changed the rules so we can keep going through the winter.
We went to Rock Creek Farm in Broomfield, CO and the views alone make it worth the drive. The mountains are the perfect back drop for pumpkin picking. We choose this pumpkin patch out of all the other ones in Colorado for a couple reasons:
- Free Admission
- Pumpkins that were all the same price ($7 for one, $12 for two, etc) so we didn’t have to worry about which field we were in.
- Other free activites (petting zoo and bouncy house)
- Free parking
Basically we didn’t want to pay a lot just to go look at pumpkins and enjoy the afternoon. Some pumpkin patches charge $24 for two adult admissions. I am sure that they have a wider range of activities but with Elijah being so young, it wasn’t worth it to us.
We were very pleased with our decision and with how organized the Farm was. There were a TON of people there but it didn’t feel like it. We were able to drive to any of the pumpkin patches and parking was very simple. Once we found our pumpkin, we headed to the activities area. They had lots of animals to look at (pigs, goats, sheep, cows and turkeys), fun photo opportunities and some yummy food.All in all we spent $16 for one pumpkin, a slice of pumpkin bread, a caramel apple and a bottle of water. Plus we had a great time.
