- Granger Pumpkin Patch - pumpkin patch
1731 Beam Road, Granger, WA 98932. Phone: 509-854-1413.
A visitor writes on October 15, 2011: "We visited the Granger
pumpkin patch today and were very disappointed. We have been there
several times in the past, but not for 5 years or so.In the past
they had hay mazes, corn mazes, pumpkins that were decorated in
costumes, a cute little store that you could browse in. Now all of
that is gone. in place of the cute decorated pumpkins is a "haunted
house", complete with obnoxious screaming sounds and bloody
manequins. They have a hay stack pyramid, but watch out the slide
has a nail petruding from the side. Also another thing is that you
no longer get a free pumpkin with admission. I should of realized
something was up when we were only the 4th car in the parking lot on
a sunny Saturday in October! "
