Vala’s Pumpkin Patch and Apple Orchard– Gretna

If Disney theme parks were to design a pumpkin patch, they’d come to Vala’s Pumpkin Patch for inspiration. With over 50 attractions and activities, Vala’s Pumpkin Patch and Apple Orchard is famous for offering wholesome family fun! Not only can you pick pumpkins and apples – but you will find hayrack rides, train rides, jumping pillows, pedal tractors, Pigtucky pig races, zip lines, a corn maze, and SO much more! The apple cider donuts, caramel apples, and pumpkin pie are just a few of our favorite treats. New this year is a curbside pickup for Takeout Tuesdays! Order online and enjoy many of Vala’s signature festival foods and hot dinners at home!

With something new every year and attractions that you’ll want to come back for, Vala’s goes above and beyond in providing wholesome family entertainment year after year.
