Welcome Teachers and Groups
At the Colorado Pumpkin Patch, we want your class to have a wonderful outdoor experience! We are prior teachers ourselves and have many years of experience working with kids and kids programs.  Let us help you justifying an educational trip to the Pumpkin Patch. Below are several ideas for curriculums that our Patch experience can support, along with fun pumpkin facts and web page links.

Admission for Groups: Each child  with a school group gets an admission rate of $7.50 and receives a small pumpkin with admission. The coordinating teacher receives a FREE admission and a FREE pumpkin.  Additional chaperons will have an admission of $3.  Any other teachers/chaperons/parents/siblings that want a pumpkin may enter at  the group rate.

***SNOW policy will follow District 38 during the week for delay and closure.  Call us for more details.***

Agriculture: A science SOL requirement is to link the products found in the grocery store to their  agricultural “roots.” While you are at the Patch, you can talk to the  kids about growing pumpkins from seed.

Animals: Our farm friendly animals are there for you to pet and talk to. We keep sheep wool available for you to touch and feel the lanolin within the wool. It is ungreased wool, which means that we have not cleaned it or processed it. Also, we have  placed decoys along our tractor ride so that the kids can have the  opportunity to “spot” North American wildlife on our “North American Safari” tractor rides.

Fun FACTS:

Pilgrim Pumpkins – A member of the squash family, the pumpkin is a Native American vegetable. Pumpkins were plentiful during the time of the Pilgrims, who had a little rhyme describing just how many pumpkins they had:

We have pumpkins at morning and pumpkins at noon, If it were not for pumpkins, We would soon be undone!

Pumpkin Facts -The Atlantic Giant pumpkin seed that was created in Nova Scotia can produce a pumpkin that weighs 400 pounds. The record breaking weight of an Atlantic Giant is 821 pounds. This is as much as a small cow and is enough to make 400 pumpkin pies.

There once were so many pumpkins in New England that the city of Boston  was nicknamed “Pumpkinshire.”

In the 1800’s Irish immigrants to America brought this story about Jack of the Lantern. The legend says that Jack was a greedy man, so stingy that  he couldn’t get into Heaven. And, he played so many tricks on people that the Devil wouldn’t take him either. So, Jack was forced to walk around until Judgment Day looking for a resting place. He stuffed a lighted piece of coal into a turnip to use as a lantern to see by. As the years went by, Americans began using a pumpkin instead of a turnip for Jack’s lantern –  and now we have Jack-o-lanterns to light our way!

The First Pumpkin Pie: The Pilgrims invented the pumpkin pie. They baked the pumpkin in the ashes of a fire. When it was cooked, they removed the top  and added honey and maple syrup to the warm pumpkin inside. Mmm-mmm good!

Other Ideas: Puzzling Pumpkins: See how many words you can create out of the words PUMPKIN PATCH. See what your record is.

Cooking: Pumpkin Pie, Pumpkin Raisin Cookies or Maple Pumpkin Cookies; Pumpkin Bread, Pumpkin Butter, Pumpkin Seeds (roasted or fried), Pumpkin Snack Chips, Pumpkin Waffles or Pancakes, Fried Pumpkin Flowers, and always, Pumpkin Soup! Yummy!
