Gourd big or gourd home at these Portland area pumpkin patches

Pick out a seasonal squash, wander through a corn maze, or just take in the autumn vibes at these local farms.

Several different kinds of pumpkins and squash are inside a wheelbarrow at a farm.

Oh my gourd, there are so many kinds of pumpkins and squash to choose from.

Sweater weather is fast approaching and neighborhood trees are starting to decorate lawns and cars with crunchy leaves. It’s about time for a trip or two (or several) to a local pumpkin patch. So we’re going fall in by sharing six farms to visit around the Portland area.

Plumper Pumpkin Patch & Tree Farm | 11435 NW Old Cornelius Pass Rd.

Wed.-Sun., 9 a.m.-5:30 p.m.
Fall in love with the farm animals, turn the kids loose on the forest-inspired playground, get lost (in the best way) in the corn and hay mazes, and take home a pumpkin from this 65-acre former dairy farm. There’s also a hydraulic cannon for launching apples and squash.

Topaz Farm | 17100 NW Sauvie Island Rd.

Tues.-Thurs., 11 a.m.-7 p.m.; Fri.-Sun., 9 a.m.-7 p.m.
Enjoy quirky fall activities like “pumpkin bowling” and “duck races.” Oh, and don’t miss the caramel Honeycrisp apples. Pro tip: Save $5 per person by purchasing your weekend tickets in advance.

Now that is a pumpkin to tell your friends about.

Bella Organic Farm | 16205 NW Gillihan Rd.

Sun.-Thurs., 9 a.m.-6 p.m.; Fri.-Sat., 9 a.m.-10 p.m.

Adults can enjoy fruit wine and cider tastings while all ages can make memories in the corn maze (this year’s design is a statement for gun safety) and pumpkin patch.

The Pumpkin Patch | 16511 NW Gillihan Rd.

Daily, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.
Portland’s “original” pumpkin patch boasts a classic red barn built in 1929, a produce market, farm animals, a gift shop, a patio cafe, and pumpkins galore. Take a hay ride into the patch to pick your own, or choose from piles of pre-picked pumpkins — try saying that five times fast.

Roloff Farms | 23985 NW Grossen Dr., Hillsboro

Fri.-Sun., 10 a.m.-5:30 p.m.
There’s enough to do at the home of TLC’s “Little People, Big World” to take up a whole day. Ride a train, try a wagon tour, launch balls from a powerful air cannon, or pick out souvenirs from inside a 100-year-old barn. Pumpkins of every shape and size are available, along with food, treats, and drinks to wash it all down. Pro tip: You’ll need to make a reservation before visiting.

Hoffman Farms | 22242 SW Scholls Ferry Rd., Beaverton

Wed.-Sun., 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
What began more than 35 years ago as a potato farm is now a multi-faceted agricultural endeavor involving multiple generations of farmers. Visitors in the fall can pick pumpkins straight from the field while taking in views of Scholls Valley, walk through a 10-acre corn maze, or see the berry fields on a short train ride aboard The Hoffman Farms Express.
