It’s Fall ya’ll and that means it’s time for another trip to the MECCA Farms’ pumpkin patch.
Last year, MECCA Farms opened for their first annual pumpkin patch. This year, they’re back with the same fun pumpkin picking and a few new activities the entire family will enjoy.
What to Expect
Once again this year, MECCA Farms will have a variety of pumpkins available from pie pumpkins to decorative squash.
Kids will have plenty of attractions to keep their attention, including a hay ride, petting zoo, corn crib, face painting, small corn maze, big slide with a pile of hay to soften your landing, concessions and much more! Make a day of it with a picnic at the farm after you’ve picked your pumpkin.
The pumpkin patch is open each weekend of October from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. New this year, the farm will offer a different event each weekend. Here’s the schedule:
October 8th and 9th: Freshly Made Apple Cider
MECCA Farms is pulling out their antique press to make ultra-fresh cider for pumpkin patch goers. Come for the daily demonstration of the press in action and stay for the cider samples.
October 15th and 16th: Pony Rides
MECCA Farms is joining forces with Rolling Hills Ranch to offer kids $5 pony rides. This is a must-try for the little ones who love horses.
October 23rd and 30th: Live Music
Family of all ages will enjoy relaxing at the farm while listening to live music by local artist, Nick Bruck. The music starts at 1 p.m.
October 29th: Costume Day
Give your kids a chance to dress up early! When your kids head to MECCA Farms dressed in their favorite Halloween costume, they’ll receive a free bag of popcorn.
About the Farm
The farm is located at 425 Delmar in Roach, Missouri.
McGrath Insurance Group has taken a liking to this new annual tradition because it was started by our very own Melissa Kupfer, who works as a personal lines agent at our Camdenton insurance agency.
The farm was founded in 2013. After flipping and rebuilding many homes, Melissa and her husband, Clay, decided to put their love of construction and the great outdoors to work for the entire Ozarks community by starting the pumpkin patch. The name MECCA came from the initials of each of their family members – Melissa, Emily, Clay, Carley, and Annie Kupfer. Now, the entire family is thrilled to be in their second year of hosting the community for fun at the pumpkin patch.
