Autumn is almost here, and that means it’s nearly time for pumpkins! Pumpkins are incredibly versatile fall staples since they can be used to create delicious baked goodies as well as unique home decor. You can find a wonderful selection of pumpkins at Faulkner’s Pumpkin Ranch, just a short drive from your apartment in Kansas City.
Faulkner’s Pumpkin Ranch
Faulkner’s Ranch is well-known for being one of Kansas City’s premier wedding venues, but it also happens to be the best place to pick a perfect pumpkin. The rustic ranch celebrates autumn each year with its spectacular pumpkins and nostalgic fall activities.
The big draw at Faulkner’s is undoubtedly their enormous pumpkin patch! The ranch boasts an impressive variety of pumpkins and gourds, perfect for baking, decorating, and carving.
Choose a delicious Cushaw pumpkin for your next pie or decorate your home with uniquely-shaped Cinderella pumpkins. Pie pumpkins (usually 2-6 pounds) are $3.00 each while pumpkins used for jack-o-lanterns are 49 cents per pound.
Don’t leave without checking out a gorgeous selection of miniature pumpkins, mums, straw bales, and corn stalks for your fall decorating. Brighten up a deck or balcony with Faulkner’s “Fall Porch Package” — a straw bale, cornstalk, and mum for $27.50 (plus 10% off any pumpkin!).
A visit to Faulkner’s Ranch during pumpkin season is not complete without participating in delightful fall activities. Wander through the “No Left Turn” maze, check out the cow milking competition, or engage in a friendly game of cornhole or horseshoes. Weekends also offer special attractions, such as the corn cannon and mechanical bull.
Admission prices are as follows:
Happy Hours (Monday-Thursday, 3-6 p.m.): $5
Children ages 2 and under: free
The ranch is open daily from 10 a.m.-6 p.m., from September 29th-October 31st.
Your day at the ranch is not over until you fill your belly with delicious seasonal treats. Indulge in a pulled pork sandwich drenched in sweet and savory BBQ sauce, crispy chicken tenders, or a giant plate of nachos. Finish off your meal with something to satisfy your sweet tooth — choose from fresh-baked pumpkin spice donuts, gourmet s’mores, or an unbelievable apple cider donut sundae.
