Looking for a local pumpkin patch, corn maze, hayride, gourds and other
Halloween activities in Southeastern Missouri? Scroll down this page and you will see the
all of those in Southeastern Missouri, sorted by county. Some are
farms, where you take a hay ride out into the field, others are elaborate farm
stands with mountains of pumpkins and other activities and some are simple
roadside stands. Most have loads of pumpkins to choose from. To really make it
fun for your kids, look for those that have the extra activities, like a corn
maze, spook house, or hayride. There is usually a small fee for the mazes (of
course, the more elaborate mazes tend to charge more. Hayrides are often free.

Check. Our family has been growing fruit since the early 1900s.
We started in Washington state before moving to Missouri in 1951.
Mr. Cates' youngest daughter, Janet and her husband, Kevin, took over
the orchard in 1986. They have also added a large variety of
vegetables grown in their large garden and 2 high tunnels. Kevin
and Janet have three children that have grown up as 4th
generation family farmers. The family would love for you to come
visit us mid-June through October for "fresh from the farm"
fruits and vegetables! Hope to see you soon!!.
