Spooner Farms is our most frequently recommended pumpkin patch in Pierce County! REALTOR® Trish Stone shares, “Spooners off the Orting highway has a plethora of activities, food trucks, a corn maze, farm animals, picture taking opportunities, and even some shopping!” A gift shop on the farm offers pumpkin carving tools, kitchen and home products, Halloween decorations, even caramel apples and fudge! REALTOR® Amber Tuck adds, “Also so many fun, free family activities at Spooners! Just the cost of a pumpkin gets you a whole day of fun for all ages.” REALTOR® Maggie Feagin-Schauble raves, “Spooners is the best! The corn maze is so much fun!” Along with the corn maze, the farm offers pumpkin slingshots as well! The farm is definitely iconic in the area and REALTOR® Linda Solheim shared with us, “Spooners Farm is going five generations strong. There is always a great experience for the whole family.” REALTOR® Erin Dobrinski shares, “I've always been a big fan of Spooner Farms too! Even when it's off-season, I love driving by - it always evokes great memories and good feelings. It's part of what makes Puyallup and the Orting Valley special all year long.”
“Picha Farms near river road in the Puyallup valley is great for picture ops, slingshots, corn maze, and reunions,” Says Trish. “If you were a product of Puyallup schools, you'll either see Russ Picha, a favorite Junior High science teacher and/or your old classmates!” Russ' brother Dan Picha also owns the farm and is a teacher at Puyallup High School! If you treasure family farms, Picha is another great choice. REALTOR® Morgan Reay shares,”Picha Farms is family owned and the hayrides and corn maze are a blast for all ages. Always treat yourself to a caramel apple (or two)!” REALTOR® Steve Sloboda adds “I 100% agree with Morgan. We hit Picha’s every year.” Picha is appreciated for their great owners. REALTOR® Kelli Jo Hjalseth says, “Family-owned Picha Farms is a favorite! FUN for the kiddos and and the rest of the clan too! The owners are the nicest people you will meet.” REALTOR® Lindsay Heidal adds, “Pichas is an easy stop, not a long walk with kiddos, lots of cute photo ops. It’s one of my favorites on weekday evenings.”
