County 10 took a pumpkin patch and corn maze field trip last week to SonHarvest Seasons northeast of Riverton.
Owners Kim and Brian Peil chatted with us about the different types of pumpkins they have this year and let me tell you there are a lot. Don’t believe me, check out the photos below.
Kim shared they have had the pumpkin patch for over 15 years and each year approximately 1500+ folks come through for all the fun fall activities they offer like hayrides, corn maze, and pumpkin picking.
Interested in learning more about the pumpkin patch size, and how they plant them? Those details and more are shared in their recent podcast with Fremont Food Hub.

We said our goodbyes to Kim and Brian at corn maze entrance. They left with a promise to report us missing if we didn’t come in out in 48 hours.
The maze started easily enough as we envisioned our way to the exit Kim and Brian pointed out before they headed back to the pumpkin patch. After a few dead ends and what felt like walking in circles (very likely), our small group became separated. It was touch and go as we worked our way through the maze shouting for each other. The wind picked up carrying our voices and the temperature dropped as we became turned around. We began thinking of ways to make friends with raccoons but we found our way out and adjusted back into society quickly.
A sped-up version of our corn maze journey is below:
