Bobby Dazzler’s Pumpkin Patch returns after a week-long delay due to rain – Daily Democrat

Bobby Dazzler’s Pumpkin Patch — located at 23300 County Rd 99D in Woodland — opened Friday, welcoming families to enjoy the farm’s signature annual activities for kids, including the cow train, corn bath, petting zoo, children and mazes.

Pumpkin patch manager Ashley Bush said she was thrilled to be opening the pumpkin patch again after having to postpone the opening for a week due to storms.

“We had about three inches of rain here and that was enough not to let us bring our gear,” Bush said.

She noted that the farm was unable to get a tractor to work preparing the pumpkin patch until Saturday after the storms hit.

“We had to disc and scrape the passage through the pumpkins and the cow train path, so we needed about a week of tractor work just to prepare the ground for people to come in here,” added Bush.

However, now that the pumpkin patch is open, she can’t wait to see the families back on the farm having fun.

“It’s absolutely awesome, especially after a few years with COVID and people not being able to get out there and have all of these experiences outside…making these memories, especially the little guys,” she said.

For Abeer Alsharif, the reopening of the pumpkin patch couldn’t come soon enough. Her 3-year-old son, Tameem Fararjeh, has been asking about the pumpkin patch since it closed last year.

“We came here last year and I didn’t really expect him to be so attached to the place,” Alsharif explained. “He knows the place just by driving down the highway.”

Alsharif brought her children to the pumpkin patch last week when it was supposed to open because she hadn’t realized the opening had been postponed.

“It took him half an hour just to calm down and realize it was closed,” she said. “But today, all the time here, the excitement in his voice and in his body language is unbelievable…so we’ve been looking forward to it all year.”

Bobby Dazzler’s Pumpkin Patch is locally owned and operated for 40 years and produces most of its pumpkins – some are hand picked and trucked in from other local fields.

The Pumpkin Patch rates its pumpkins by size and variety instead of weight and offers free parking, free admission, free use of wagons and a free play zone to provide families with an economical activity. to do with their children.

“We want to keep prices down so families can go out and have fun and not be afraid to overspend,” said Bobby Dazzler staff member Kerie Holck.

This year, in addition to the usual attractions, the farm is adding four bouncy houses — only available on Saturdays and Sundays — for kids to enjoy with a $7 admission fee, according to Holck. However, parents will need to sign a waiver form for their children to be allowed entry.
