We are halfway there to Halloween. Great image here of the pumpkin wonders of Sauvie Island. Here is some info from the Pumpkin Patch site:
Q.How do I get to Sauvie Island?
A.From Portland, take HWY 30 West until you come to the Sauvie Island bridge. After going over the bridge, be sure to turn left and loop back under it. Go two miles and you'll see us!
Q.When do you open and close?
A.We open in June as soon as strawberries are ready and close the first week of November after we have sold the last of the year's fresh produce. We also are open every holiday between June- October. Our hours are 9-6 daily.
Q.At the end of the season, where does all your extra produce go?
A.Surprisingly here at the Pumpkin Patch, surplus is not a problem. Every bit of produce we grow and harvest goes to a good home; either to our customers, to the large varieties of charities we support, or to our animals (if its not consumable).
Q: What's this I hear about THE MAIZE? What is it and when is it?
A. The Maize is a 6 acre cornfield maze produced right here at the Pumpkin Patch this year as an added attraction. It will be open mid September and October for your challenging enjoyment! The Maize has appeared in 14 different sites across the country. It is made up of 300,000 cornstalks that create a human-size maze. Fieldtrips and special groups are welcome. The Maize hotline is (503)621-7110 for more information.
