Whether it’s a fresh pumpkin pie, a jack-o-lantern or some pumpkin bread that you’ve been craving to make, Aloun Farms Pumpkin Patch is the perfect place to find it.

And best of all the hunt comes with educational fun for the whole family.

West Oahu’s popular pumpkin patch is open again to students and small groups on week-days when the children have the opportunity to visit the patch to learn about farming, take a hayride around the farm and even pick their own pumpkin to take home. The scheduled farm visits are $5 per person.

The public is invited to pick pumpkins and enjoy the Pumpkin Patch Festival happening Oct. 20, 21, 27 and 28 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The festival will have hay rides, jumpers, food and the Fly’in Hawaiian Pumpkin Slingshot. On each day, the first 300 people with canned food donations for Hawaii Foodbank will get a free mini flat pumpkin. Parking is $3, and pumpkins are for sale. Proceeds from the parking will go to the Campbell High School agriculture program.

“Pumpkins are 50 cents up to $8 or $9,” said Terry Phillips of Aloun Farms. ” Some pumpkins can be 40 pounds and up, and we have little tiny ones about a quarter of a pound.”

For more information, call 677-9516.
