Take a peek into our favorite North Dakota pumpkin patch where we visited this afternoon. You cannot but help love North Dakota agritourism at its finest.
It’s Potter’s Way, just west of Oakes, ND, located on the Rodine farm.
Potter’s Way is complete with gift shop of treasures, homemade pumpkin pie, coffee, apple slices with caramel and Hunter’s find of pumpkin butter which we brought home.
We followed the Potter’s Way path to an afternoon of family fun.
The corn maze had tough trivia questions that each of us managed to get wrong once or twice. This was when Nathan, Hunter and I completely turned over our corn maze fate to Gpa Eldon and Nana. In the above picture, they were estimating how many inches of twine were on the hay bale. Our choices were 174 or 196. Thankfully we guessed 196 based on their estimate we weren’t…
wearing the dunce hats…on that turn. But trust me…it took us while to find our way through the corn maze.
I’m not the only one toting a camera in our family.
I have an old Allis Chalmers in my family farming history…and maybe someday my brother Robbie will have it refurbished to look like the beauty the pulled us out to the pumpkin patch today.
Do you see the camouflage in the corner in the above picture? That was the woman sitting next to me on the wagon, dressed in full camo (not military, hunting camo) while bringing her three kids to the pumpkin patch. I am sure there are at least one hundred redneck jokes I could throw out right now. But instead I will tell you…welcome to the North Dakota fly way zone, hunting mecca and full of hunters and our fair share of rednecks. But they are good hearted rednecks who take their children to the pumpkin patch.
Pumpkin hunting on the prairie with mid-60’s temperatures was a perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon and one of our favorite family fun fall activities.
What’s is your favorite fall family fun activity?
