Once that first leaf falls, everyone knows that it’s pumpkin patch time. Stocker Farms, which is located in Snohomish, is a great option for those seeking autumnal vibes. This family-owned farm started in 1919 and has evolved over the last century, eventually opening at certain times of the year to allow families a beautiful and fun place to enjoy time together and see where their food — and jack-o-lanterns — come from.
Fall Days at Stocker Farms
In late September Stocker Farms launches its Fall Days, which runs through the end of October and offers access to their iconic pumpkin patch, Big Red Barn shop and food stalls, as well as separate ticketed access to a myriad of fun family attractions.
Fall Days ticket access includes harvest-themed classics such as hayrides, an intricate corn maze, picture-perfect autumnal photo-opp locations throughout the farm (including a Pumpkin Barn) and an array of over 30 fun activities for all ages — from a Cow Train and Tractor Slide to an apple blasting target practice experience.
Visiting the Sunflower Fields
During late September, Fall Days tickets also include access to their sunflower fields, where visitors may walk through picturesque fields and handpick flowers to personally curate their own bouquets. The flower fields are gorgeous on their own, but rustic-chic photo-opp locations can be found throughout as well. Pruning shears are provided to cut the thick sunflower stems, and charming vases and containers such as mason jars are available for purchase to carry your bouquet home.
Picking Out Your Pumpkin
For those solely seeking a pretty place to select their pumpkins, access to the pumpkin patch itself and the food stalls is complimentary. Pumpkins from the patch vary in cost depending on their size, and wagons to carry them are provided.
Families who want to spend more time at the farm and make a day of it may purchase tickets for the Fall Days festival online and select access from either 10 am – 2 pm or from 2 pm – 6 pm. Weekend tickets cost $19.95 per person; weekday tickets cost $13.95 per person. All those aged three years old and over will require a ticket.
The farm is taking numerous safety precautions such as limiting the number of ticket sales per time slot, requiring face masks on staff and guests, and continually sanitizing popular points of contact, amongst a long list of other efforts to keep everyone safe.
