Ask which pumpkin patch you go to for selecting your pumpkin. Bring the pumpkin and ticket to the front gate when you leave.

LATE ARRIVALS may jeopardize your admission discount. Please enter between 10-10:30 a.m.

EARLY DEPARTURES allowed at your convenience. But you won't want to miss the fun. :-)


With our paid admission, Andelin offers everyone the free cow train, meeting the farm animals (pigs, chickens, alpacas), lassoing, a corn shed, a hay bale maze for kids under 3' tall, “cow milking”, sling shooting, bean bag toss, the cart track, hay jump, farm tracks game in the SMALL kids corn maze (for kids 4' and under), duck races and funny photo boards. Very popular with young children is our “Little Garden” to harvest play vegetables! We have an “Art Barn” with coloring, puzzles, activities and dress-up.

This field trip includes all of the above, plus a small pumpkin for each parent and child.

LARGE CORN MAZE available at discounted price!! That's the big one for adults and kids alike, right outside the gate. (NOT the scary zombie maze at night.)

The activities are organized into rotations, with self-guided tours at any time. Tours are supervised by a farm employee.  The field trip is approximately 1 1/2 hours.


 I-80 East to Pyramid Exit (by the Nugget), or McCarran Blvd to Pyramid Way. Take Pyramid highway almost to the SaveMart/Walgreens way at the back. Look for the signs in the dirt on the right. Drive slowly.

Parking: Free and abundant in a large dirt lot

Photo policy: Please do not post photos/videos of other people's children (in which the child is recognizable or more than 50% of the child's face is visible) to social media without the permission of that child's parent. Never post and then tag the parent, without prior permission. This is a matter of courtesy, as well as a matter of safety, and possibly law, i.e. if the child is in foster care. Please be respectful of the privacy wishes of others in the group. Thank you.
