BIXBY, Oklahoma -

The fall season is in full swing over at Carmichael's Pumpkin Patch in Bixby.

The family-owned farm has been a fall tradition for more than four decades.

The pumpkin patch opened on Saturday.

Some activities include camel, pony, and wagon rides. There’s also an animal farm where kids can feed animals like goats and pigs, and a cane maze.

Plus, there's a store selling homemade goods like jam and fudge.

Kids can take photos with pumpkins and scarecrows. It's free to visit but of course, the pumpkins and some activities have a cost.

The farm itself is open year-round. In the spring and summer, they have fresh produce like watermelons and tomatoes. In the winter, the farm sells fresh pecans and Christmas trees.

Owner Don Carmichael says through the years, he sees generations of families visiting the farm.

"It's a tradition for most of the people around Bixby and for other places that drive several miles just to come to our pumpkin patch,” Carmichael said. “And then this year, we've got the cane maze and sunflowers. And just a great place to come to spend the whole day."

The pumpkin patch is open Mondays through Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. and opens on Sundays at 10 a.m.
