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. They also have several types of squash you can pick and burlap sacks of potatoes in 25, 50, or 100-pound quantities. You can even reserve local eggs ahead of time to purchase.

Make sure to explore the restored, 1930s barn when you visit, and check out the original antique stove that heats the structure. Say hello to the chickens and roosters or one of the hundreds of pheasants on the property. Brings some quarters to purchase dried meal worms from a vending machine and watch the birds become your best friends quickly! You and your grandkids will also love riding the train around the pumpkin patch!
