“I loved picking pumpkins and the hay ride. If I had a choice of which pumpkin patch I like best it would have to be yours by far. I think I got a great pumpkin and saw a lot of cool animals. My favorite was the pigs. I love the playground and I learned what some of the tools are like the chicken catcher.”



“We had a great time tonight talking with you and exploring your pumpkin patch! You guys definitely made my first pumpkin patch experience unforgettable! There is no doubt you will be seeing the two of us again next year!”



“Tried another pumpkin patch out with friends a couple of years ago, and it just wasn’t as fun. Never again! I’ll stick with Hickory Creek!”



“Last year was our first time to your pumpkin patch and it has been by far the best patch we have been to. We plan on making your family’s pumpkin patch a family tradition for years to come. The kids are looking forward to the corn maze again! Thank you!”

The Gideon Family


“Love, love, love this AUTHENTIC pumpkin patch and working farm! You won’t be disappointed if you go to Hickory Creek Farm!”



“Ah, Pumpkin Patch…just love those words.  They conjure such beautiful thoughts of our good Lord’s fall tapestry, and His gifts of warm apple cider, and children’s giggles as they scamper up and down the rows of bright pumpkins.”

Joanna Rose


“Y’all are truly one of the neatest family oriented places to go in SEK. I shared this and regularly I tell everyone about how great your farm is.”

Zachary Hill


“Truly, you witness a very kind, hardworking family who have created a wonderful SEKS fall experience. My daughter is in 5th grade now, but the season is just not complete without seeing Miss Ruth’s pumpkin patch, corn maze, animals, animal races, rope making, hayrides, and more! Treasure! Check it out!”

“Love love love this and love love love Hickory Creek Farms!! Even though my babies are too big to go now, I still make them go with me every year!!”



“Thanks for a great day! The kids had so much fun making ropes, hay rides, corn maze, jumping in a corn and wheat barrel and watching the pig, duck,and chicken races!  We can’t wait to do it again and we finished the day picking pumpkins “



“The Zimmermans were very nice & just treat ya like family! They really care about giving the children an extremely special, enjoyable, & exciting memory that feels like an adventure! But they do it in a way that’s fun for the kids while educating them, and are very good at it! They care about making sure that each and every child that visits walks away with a precious memory & that that child truly had a good time while learning a little about the farm life & agriculture. The pumpkin patch has been one of the highlights of my year (1st as a child & later as a parent seeing my child filled with that joy & excitement)! I’ve been to a few pumpkin patches in my life & Hickory Creek is by far one of the best. The people are genuine, knowledgeable & kind.  It’s a must do for anyone with young children or even just young at heart. I advise everyone to make a trip down to Hickory Creek Farms.  You will be glad you did!”



“Had such a blast there – so much to do and such wonderful people! Will definitely do this one again in future years!  It is a bit of a drive from Joplin but so well worth it!”



“I’ve loved the experience everytime!  Kids love it and staff is great!!! Pumpkin prices great also! Thanks again for another great year!”
