Harvest Tyme in Lowell, Indiana is a great place to create a new family tradition.

For a pumpkin patch that’s easy on the wallet but has loads to do? Well, you just can’t beat this Lake County pumpkin patch.

When you pull in, you won’t be able to resist the view: fields of bright orange pumpkins. It’s simply beautiful and easy to find (which you know is always a perk for those of us who get lost so easily). They do have signage at the front of the pumpkin patch so you will know you made it to the right place.

When the kids saw all the neat stuff to do at this Indiana town attraction, well, they didn’t know what to do first. The oldest was out of the car in record time. The little guy was ready to dig into whatever came his way.

But first, we had to figure out where to go. Did they check out the fun playground equipment? Or did they play in the adorable crooked house or the enticing corn box, like a sandbox, but filled with corn? They both made a beeline for the shiny red Farmall pedal tractors.

Not just one or two ride-on tractors, there were actually three of these Farmall pedal tractor beauties, as well as a few other ride-ons for younger kids who can’t maneuver so well. That’s a very thoughtful addition. I love when places think about all of the ages of the kids who will visit their attraction. With a nice paved lane to pedal around, the kids had so much fun.

There is just so much to do at this Indiana pumpkin patch. Our boys took off in separate directions. One kid ran to the gas station to “fill up” his pedal tractor. Kid #2 decided the baby chicks in Chickville needed a new BFF. My husband and I split up so they could do what they wanted without having to wait on the other.

After awhile, we grabbed the kids from the slides, and took a hayride together. Who doesn’t love a hayride? Charlie, the tractor, pulled us along in very comfortable hay wagons. Grandparents will appreciate this cushy ride–I know I did.

You’ll go through these scenic fields with slightly rolling hills. It’s not so long that little ones get fidgety or so short that everyone is disappointed. It’s just long enough. Oh, and at the time of this writing, the hayride was also free.
