Acres of Pumpkins - Lots of Fall Family Fun!
2016 - Our 52nd Season!
We welcome you and your family to Altenburg's Family Farm, located in Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin. Over the last 50 years, we've raised a family, numerous crops of fruits and vegetables, and many memories on our farm. We invite you to grow memories on our farm and have a fun family farm experience.
Enjoy our pumpkin patch, farm market, and fall festival activities every day from Sat. Sept. 19 through Sat. Oct. 31, 2015. We grow our own pumpkins for you to pick from the patch or from our farm market display. Enjoy fun fall activities daily and special events on weekends. There is no admission fee to our farm. We offer lots of fall activities, including free tractor-driven hayrides on weekends. From Monday through Friday, we have a $5 Weekday Activity Package.
Fall Field Trips
We invite preschool and grade school classes to visit our farm and pumpkin patch for a field trip on weekdays in the fall. Children learn about a fruit and vegetable farm and have a fun farm experience. Farmer Altenburg provides each group with individual attention so everyone has a fun and educational visit.
We have a total of about 5 acres of strawberries for picking in 2016. The strawberry season usually runs from mid-June to mid-July. We pick part of the patch each day starting at 6:30 a.m. Berries are available to pick every day. We use the first-come/first-served system. How long we pick into the day depends on that day’s picking conditions, weather, and the number of pickers that come out to pick.
