You can’t get much more fall entertainment than Cottage Lane Pumpkin Patch! It’s all about pumpkins and family fun here. Located at 1001 W 15th street in Ellis Kansas, Cottage Lane is only a short drive from Hays. Established in 2001, Cottage Lane has all your autumn Pumpkin Patch essentials.
“Harvest of Pumpkins” ran from September 23 to October 31. Visitors could experience a ‘U-Pick-Em’ Pumpkin Patch, picking your favorite pumpkin in the field with a complimentary hayride. Many activities were held, including a corn maze with spooky scarecrows at every turn and getting a glimpse at the farm animals, such as chickens and goats. Kids were able to enjoy face painting, as well as a hay bale slide. And you couldn’t leave without shopping in the ole’ hog barn for locally made crafts, cottage lane candle products, custom-made canned goods and fall decor! At Cottage Lane Pumpkin Patch, visitors enjoyed the peaceful rural setting with all its country charm.
