Applejack Pumpkin Patch
I feel like October isn’t complete without a visit to at least one pumpkin patch. With that, we took our daughter to Applejack Pumpkin Patch located just east of Wichita in Augusta, KS.
The pumpkin patch is open until the end of October. Admission to Applejack is $10 per person and free for children 2 and under. They do offer half-price admission for military and senior citizens.
There’s so much included with the price of admission. A few things do cost extra such as the food, pumpkins, feeding the animals, grain train on the weekends only and the artillery line.
Aside from that, there’s an endless number of fun for the family, especially the kids. Some of the amenities include:
- Hay Rack Ride
- Corn Maize
- Giant Checks and Chess
- Petting Zoo
- Corn Crib
- Wooden Train
- Tire Swings
- Zip Lines
- Giant Slides
- Jump Pads
Oh, and there are a ton of picture opportunities for family pics and Instagrammers.
With our two-year-old, she wasn’t too interested in a lot of things. But the things she loved, she had to do over and over and over and over and over and over. We probably spent much of our time either at the wooden train, petting zoo or slides.
And if you’re on the hunt for a pumpkin, they obviously have those too. Granted, this late in to the month, most of the good pumpkins have been picked over.
And if you get hungry, they do have concession stands. There’s one that sells ribeye steak sandwiches which had a huge line. We popped in for filet mignon sandwich, ribeye on a stick and the obligatory pickle.
Even though our daughter isn’t quite old enough to truly enjoy everything pumpkin patches have to offer, I felt it was still my duty as a daughter to take her to one. It’s all about the traditions for me.
