Bounce Pad & Houses

Fairy Garden 

Did you know that every time we plant a pumpkin seed a flower fairy is born? Neither did we, until all of a sudden a fairy garden started to be built by our winery. It's filled with fairy homes, and toys and lots of fun things to see. But remember you have to look and not touch and you have to wear our wings and pixie dust so they won't see you.

Fishing Pond

This year our little pond is filled to the brim with fish just waiting for a good fisherman. Catch and release as many as you can. We have the fishing poles and all the gear, just come ready for some fishing fun.

Rod and bait are included


Climb on up and grab a seat on a bail of hay and join the ride down to our pumpkin patch and vineyard, where you can wonder through the field to find the pumpkin that is just right for you!

Love animals? Well we have plenty of cute animals to fall in love with. Feed our adorable goats, llama, baby alpaca, chickens, ducks and more. Hang out in the bunny corral and cuddle our crew of cuties.  Feed and play with all our animal friends. They love kids and can't wait to see you!

Pumpkin Slingshot 

Want to see how far you can sling a pumpkin or a gourd? Well then the pumpkin slingshot is your game. Last year our record was a mini pumpkin that was slung 400 feet into the field. can you beat that?

Or try your hand at pumpkin bowling, Knock down all the pins and you win a prize.





Bamboo Maze

You might wonder why we don't have a corn maze. Well we live in the desert and water is a precious thing, especially when you are growing pumpkins and grapes. So we are saving the water for all our big beautiful pumpkins and wonderful grapes that make our wine. But we promise you'll get lost and have fun in this awesome sustainable maze! Named one of the top mazes in New Mexico!





Hay Climbs & Tire Climbs

Kids love to climb on stuff, and we have plenty of things to climb on. They can climb our hay bail stack that is ten bails high (which is extremely high), or climb on one of our old tractors. We have new tire stacks and other fun things.
