Fall Magic at
Howell's Pumpkin Patch
Fall is a magical time of the year, especially at Howell's Pumpkin Patch, located just 10 miles south of Des Moines off I-35.
Come enjoy a tractor pulled wagon ride and pick your own pumpkin at Howell's Pumpkin Patch!
Here, the fall colors find their full glory amid pumpkins of all sizes and colors, beautiful mums, fresh bittersweet, Indian Corn, corn stalks, decorative squash, gourds, antique farm machinery and Howell's huge selection of dried florals and seasonal decorations.
Our fleet of antique tractors are making continuous rounds out to the Corn Maze and the Pumpkin Patch, so plan on the whole family climbing aboard the wagons for a country ride, a chance to explore our twisting and winding maze,and to then pick out the perfect pumpkins for each member of the family.
The wagon ride, including your visit to the Pumpkin Patch and the Corn Maze, is included in the per person admission (under 2 free), plus the cost of your pumpkins if you choose to purchase them. Wagons are wheelchair accessible!
Come see our friendly Barn Yard, where kids can see lively goats. Over in the Kiddie Korral, we have a special farm playground with pedal tractors, wiggle cars, hay stacks to climb on, mud pies, the corn box, a giant slide, and many other activities.
Flowers, Gift Shop, Ice Cream, & Treats
Be sure, while you are here, you try our homemade ice cream, hot dogs, chips, candy, drinks and other snacks!
If you need something spooky to add to your Halloween decor, come see our extensive Gift Shop, packed to the rafters with scary stuff and super fall decorations. This is the home of Howell's Dried Florals and Greenhouse, where you'll find a huge selection of seasonal decorating ideas.
