Nothing says fall like a trip to the pumpkin patch, and Idaho Falls has a great one. The U-Pick Red Barn is a family run business that lets you pick fresh produce any time you want, including pumpkins!
The farm has a Pick n’ Pay trust system where you pick the produce you’d like and pay in the box marked “Pay Here” next to the door. You just follow the signs shaped like the produce you’re looking for and you’ll find it! Right now, the farm has over twenty varieties of pumpkins for you to choose from in all shapes and sizes.
