Who we are

One of the long-standing, rich, family traditions in Lawrence includes a visit to Schaake’s Pumpkin Patch on a beautiful autumn day.

Schaake's Pumpkin PatchLarry was raised on this operation and took over the farming responsibilities at the young age of sixteen after his father passed away. This farm was built on integrity, work ethic and family values. These are principles that Larry and Janet feel were important to pass down to their children and now their grandchildren. For the past 40 years, Larry and Janet Schaake’s family farm has hosted thousands of urban visitors including school children and families from the northeast Kansas area and surrounding states.

Plus, activities include pick-your-own-pumpkins, hayrides, a hay maze, the straw romp, farm animals for viewing, and a photo area. As a part of our field trips, each child will get a hayride to and from the pumpkin patch where they can pick their own pumpkin
