Click here to see the listings of pumpkin patches, corn mazes and farms in Southwestern areas Oregon or just scroll down the page!

A visitor writes on July 02, 2012: "We have stopped going to all of the "big" farms in the Eugene/Springfield area and only go to Hentze farms now. They have a spring festival and a fall festival, and when we went to the last fall festival, we ended up spending all day and barely spending any money at all. Had we gone to one of the other farms we would have spent WAY more money and had way less fun (and not spent very long because of all of the costs and the mess of people). We LOVE Hentze Farms! They also have Strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, peppers, flowers, etc. Very reasonably priced. Their fall festival is pretty much free for everything you want to do. The corn maze is not huge, but it's perfect for families with younger children or with limited time or budgets (it's free). They are very kid friendly, with all kinds of farm animals you can visit. They sometimes do horse rides (usually during their festivals in the spring and fall). During their fall festival they have a free corn maze, free hay rides, free pumpkin carving, hot air balloon rides, pony rides, games, a BBQ, and a "secret" pumpkin patch with giant pumpkins that have been carved (free to visit). They also have a night-time jack-o-lantern walk with all of them lit up. Very cool! Not sure if they are organic or not, but they are the only place in Lane County that I have found where you can do u-pick raspberries! They are very kid-friendly. They also have amazing norseberry jam for sale! They do also sell produce at the Lane County Farmers' Market."

A visitor writes on October 12, 2011: "A great place - especially for kids. Too far north to be Eugene, after all, but just barely. Festivals: Strawberry, Watermelon Feed, Bodacious Corn, Apple, and then all the fall/halloween stuff. *Draft* horse hayrides! (Percherons, I think) Playground, "panning sluice", "cow train trail" During fall season, jack-o-lantern faces are painted on the ends of those huge round hay bales, welcoming you to the grounds."
A visitor writes: "Lone Pine has an enormous corn maze that can be challenging for adults and kids alike. The corn maze can be done both day and night, haunted and not. It is especially fun at night. Be sure to arrive early because there is always a long (but quick) line. Cost used to be approximately $10 per person, but I am not sure if that is still the case. There is lots of supervision outside the maze, but I recommend children going in large groups or with adult supervision. Bring a flash light or buy one on site. They have a great grocery store with lots of local produce from Polk County and all over Oregon. The goat house is also neat for kids. This is a great place for local and seasonal produce. There are also a number of local farms on the same road for stopping along the way. This is on location that I miss now that we have moved out of county. "

We follow organic methods, but are not yet certified. Payment: Cash, Check. WE do not use pesticides or fertilize much, however, most of our stuff is not truly organic. We do a pretty good job at avoiding getting chemicals into or onto our plants. We have a wonderful setting on The McKenzie River and close to I-5. Our primary product is cutting flowers. We have hundreds of varieties, often in small amounts. Dogs must be leashed or contained at all times. We have chickens and may have eggs (u-Pick?) at times. Customer service is often lax as we are a u-pick, have low customer numbers and low staffing. If you want to be sure to get personal assistance, call ahead to let us know. It is good to bring clean buckets or containers for cut flowers. We love volunteers and have interns volunteering here quite often. (ADDED: May 05, 2008)
