Looking for a sincere pumpkin patch to roam around, some friendly animals to feed, and more information about bees than you can buzz at? Then Peterson’s Farm is perfect for you.

Peterson’s Farm is nestled in a residential neighborhood, and when we arrived we first thought it was a private residence. But once you turn in you can see the barn decorated for Halloween and the friendly and personable family ready to help you and answer questions.

Parking is behind the barn by a good-sized field of homegrown pumpkins. Families were pulling wagons and kids were running around the beautiful field choosing pumpkins to take home. The pumpkins, like everything grown at Peterson’s farm, are pesticide and herbicide free.

As we made our way around to the front of the barn to pay for our pumpkins, we were greeted by friendly animals and were able to feed them from the buckets of food next to each animal’s house. The Scottish Highland cow was especially soft and furry and fun to feed. We also stopped to visit with some bunnies, free-range chickens, roosters, a turkey, and two horses before making our way into the barn.

Inside the barn we got to see bees at work in the observation hive. We even spotted the queen! Then the real Queen Bee, Ettamarie Peterson, came in and we spent some time talking to her and learning all about bees and hearing her wonderful stories of beekeeping. Take home some honey that has been extracted on the farm (not from the observation hive) and strained through a double-layered sieve before bottling.

Before we left, we treated ourselves to some homemade zucchini bread, chocolate chip cookies, and brownies to go.

We had a very pleasant time at Peterson’s Farm and can’t wait to visit next year.
