Have you been to Arkansas Frontier Pumpkin Patch? Then share photos of your experience!

If you are looking for pumpkin patches in Arkansas you have come to the right place. Arkansas Frontier has a fun and exciting U-Pick Pumpkin Patch every Fall Season. However, we are so much more than just a pumpkin patch. We are an interactive educational experience for people of all ages.

Children go to the Pumpkin Patch and pick their very own pumpkin to take home. Although, there are numerous types and sizes of pumpkins available for sale the fun is in picking your own. The U-Pick Pumpkin Patch is located at the front of the premises so visitors are welcome to pick their pumpkin at their convenience. If you are bringing a group, wagons can be provided to help carry the group’s pumpkins to the vehicle. Other attractions include take ride on the train, wagon ride, farm animals, and more!

Tour the Old Fashioned School House
Experience what it was like to go to a one-room school house 100 years ago with all grades in one room with only one teacher. See the old “ink well” desks. Find out what the children did at recess with no slides or other modern playground equipment. The students brought their lunch in buckets or cloth napkins. They often brought leftovers from last night’s dinner, or bread smeared with lard.
This is a great time to evaluate the educational obstacles that were placed before our ancestors involving finding a balance between work and school. During this time period children were not required to go to school and were often forced to stay home and help on the farm. Therefore, for many children getting a proper education could prove quite difficult.

Watch the Farm Animals
Enjoy a close up visit with all types of farm animals. The newest edition to the farm animal exhibit is a herd of miniature horses. We have the most common farm animals that many people would expect to see including pigs, horses, donkeys, goats, sheep, chickens, guineas, ducks, geese, rabbits and cattle. However, we also have many more animals that are not quite as common, like lamas. To see our full animal exhibit come on out to the farm.

See Early Frontier Living
The Pioneer homestead is furnished with furnishings typical of homesteads in Arkansas approximately 100 years ago. See how they cooked on a wood stove, made butter, wove rugs, and made brooms from corn shucks, Children will enjoy testing their frontier skills by milking Daisy our “Milking Cow,” grinding corn into cornmeal, and cutting firewood with a pioneer crosscut hand saw.
There are guided tours that take groups through this frontier settlement and explain the daily obstacles, entertainment, and general life style of early families. This is a great opportunity for people of all ages to ask questions and explore what life would be like without the conveniences that we are all familiar with today.

Experience the Indian Village
The Indian Village lets you know what life was like for the Native Americans. Many arrowheads and spearheads have been found on this property from when the Native Americans hunted for wild game that was plentiful in this area. This is also a wonderful opportunity to find out how Native-American culture has affected today’s society as well as find out how they lived along side the early pioneers.
Early Native-Americans knew very well how to live off the land and can be largely credited to the well-being of the early settlers enduring harsh winters. There were many different tribes of Native-Americans throughout the region, each of which learned to survive in slightly different ways.

See the Covered Wagon
Imagine traveling across the country in a covered wagon as the early settlers did. The early American pioneers had this as their only means of transporting their family and goods from place to place. On a good day they may have only traveled about 10 miles. When you come to visit make sure to get some great pictures of you and your family at the covered wagon, and while you are there stop and think how it might have felt to travel across country in such a slow moving vehicle.
While you are taking a picture feel free to ask some of the Arkansas Frontier staff about some of the different uses of the covered wagon as well as some other interesting facts about early pioneer living.

Compete at the Duck Races
Come watch as friends, siblings, and classmates compete to see who will finish at the duck races. No age limit. Experience the old fashioned way of getting water. This is a great activity to do in your spare time while on the premises, as it encourages group participation, and a little competition. It exposes children to the fact that water has not always come from a faucet, but rather had to be hand pumped by early American settlers.
The rules of this activity are simple. The person to get their duck at the end of the track first is to be declared the winner, and will have bragging rights as the Duck Racing Champion.

Mine for Gem Stones
Come and mine some gems or fossils at the Frontier Mining Company. After purchasing a bag of mining rough at Pappy’s Mine Shack, make your way to the Frontier Company’s mining sluice to discover garnets, rose quartz, fool’s gold, rubies, emeralds and many other beautiful stones. All the treasures are yours to take home.
This is a wonderful educational opportunity to learn what the 49'ers might have experienced in the Gold Rush, as well as some of the knowledge they had to posses about gem-stones. You may just learn that all that glitters is not gold.

Find Your Favorite Dinosaur
Children ages 2 through 10 can dig for dinosaur eggs and dinosaurs. They will be able to identify the dinosaurs they find and take them home.
This activity allows children to engage in a hands-on activity to match the amazement that we all had as young children of the huge beasts that roamed our great earth before our time. It might even be tempting for the gown-ups to join in on the fun and find their very own dinosaur egg. However, this activity is only for the young geologists, paleontologists, and historians, so the grown-ups will have to restrain themselves during this activity.

Stroll Through the Enchanted Forest
A walk through the Enchanted Forest lets you meet and greet some of the characters that have entertained us through the years such as, Little Red Riding Hood, The Three Little Pigs, Goldilocks and the The Three Bears, Hansel and Gretel, The Little Gingerbread boy, etc. This is also where the wild things are – deer, squirrels, raccoons, birds, turtles, frogs, etc.
This is a great opportunity to get lost in nature and enjoy a nice relaxing day on the farm.

Take A Ride On The Train
Children ages 2 though 5 can enjoy a train ride around the farm! The train makes a loop around a portion of the farm that provides a great deal of fun for the children as well as a short rest for the parents. Parents are able to see their children at all times while on the train ride, and even walk beside them if necessary, which makes it an excellent activity for even small children. The train operates at various intervals throughout the day, so make sure to check the train’s riding schedule before you get too involved with the other activities. This activity is only available on Saturdays.

Shop for Gifts & Gadgets
Visit the “Morning Glory” Gift and Craft Shop. We have Indian souvenirs, Halloween toys for children, as well as many crafts and gift items for adults. This is a great opportunity to get some unique gifts for the upcoming Christmas season as well as find some neat fall decorations. The shop also has all kinds of neat knick-knacks to explore.
