Fall is a magical time of the year, especially at Howell's Pumpkin Patch, located just 25 miles south of Des Moines off I-35. Here, the fall colors find their full glory amid pumpkins of all sizes and colors, beautiful mums and asters, fresh bittersweet, Indian Corn, corn stalks, decorative squash, gourds, antique farm machinery and Howell's huge selection of dried florals and seasonal decorations.
Dan Kaercher, host of "Iowas Simple Pleasures" on Iowa Public Television, recently visited Howell's Dried Florals and Pumpkin Patch.

Coming this fall...
Our fleet of antique tractors are making continuous rounds out to the Corn Maze and the Pumpkin Patch, so plan on the whole family climbing aboard the wagons for a country ride, a chance to explore our twisting and winding maze, and to then pick out the perfect pumpkins for each member of the family. The wagon ride, including your visit to the Pumpkin Patch and the Corn Maze, is included in the per person admission (under 2 free), plus the cost of your pumpkins if you choose to purchase them. Wagons are wheelchair accessible!
Come see our friendly Barn Yard, where kids can see lively goats. Over in the Kiddie Korral, we have a special farm playground with pedal tractors, wiggle cars, hay stacks to climb on, mud pies, the corn box, a giant slide, and many other activities.
If you need something spooky to add to your Halloween decor, come see our extensive Gift Shop, packedto the rafters with scary stuff and super fall decorations. This is the home of Howell's Dried Florals and Greenhouse, where you'll find a huge selection of seasonal decorating ideas.
Visit the upstairs of this 1910 barn to see the flowers drying.
Be sure, while you are here, you try our homemade ice cream, hot dogs, chips, candy, drinks and other snacks!
