Why We Love Howell’s Pumpkin Patch


Howell's Greenhouse & Pumpkin Patch

Fall is by far my favorite season. Who doesn’t love the beautiful colors as well as pumpkin spice everything, football, and trendy fashion? There are so many fun activities that come with fall, especially in and around Des Moines.  

As a mom of four, going to a pumpkin patch is always on our list, and Howell’s is our favorite. This cute pumpkin patch has it all! There are many reasons why we love Howell’s but the main reason is, it is the PERFECT size!! It is not too big but still has all the fun activities.
