Feature photo: Finding the perfect pumpkin (copy)

Gage Jeffries and Meighan Halmas right, pick out pumpkins from the u-pick pumpkin patch at Smith Rock Ranch in Terrebonne in 2018.

It’s officially fall and two of Central Oregon’s biggest pumpkin patches are again open for business.

The idyllic Smith Rock and DD ranches in Terrebonne are opening this weekend with acres of you-pick pumpkin fields and tons of activities so everyone in the family can revel in seasonal fun. Some activities at both ranches are open only on weekends or may be canceled due to weather. See websites or call for more information.

Besides pumpkins at both ranches, the DD Ranch will also feature pony and clydesdale rides, a petting zoo, hayride to visit and feed the cows, kids hay maze, train ride, gokarts, cowboy arcade and local craft and food vendors selling a variety of items on the weekends. Tickets for activities cost $3 per ticket with package deals available. Pumpkin costs are determined by circumference.

Open 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesdays through Sundays Sept. 25-Oct. 31.

Over at the larger Smith Rock Ranch, they’re bringing their massive corn maze, pony rides, pumpkin cannon, petting zoo, harvest market, wagon rides and more to their patch.

Activity tokens may be exchanged for maze tickets, see the ranch’s website for details. Carver pumpkin costs are determined by weight.
