For the past four years, we have taken the kids to Bauman Farms. I got the official count down from my kids…only 6 more days ’till it opens! It typically opens Oct 1, but they are open starting this weekend (unbeknown to my kids)…
Every community has its special events and hidden gems. Pumpkin patches are nothing new, but you really have to attend the pumpkin patch at Bauman Farms to see something special. I’m not going to lie to you…it isn’t cheap. For a family of 4, it is $40.00 to enter this year. I still think it is worth every penny. We go once because it is expensive and we stay all day. We come home with happy and highly fatigued children, which is a dream state for most parents…I think.
The zip lines and jumping pillow are huge hits with my kids. The irrigation tube slides are totally fun…I don’t care how “grown up” you are. Last year they had a ship that was a maze that my kids went in numerous times. Every year the Baumans create something new to keep us all entertained. I thought they couldn’t beat the zip lines, until they added the jumping pillow.
If you are relocating to Salem Oregon from another part of the country and are wondering what to do or where to go in the fall…Bauman Farms is my favorite.
