Owner/operator Erik Olson is developing a beautiful plot of land into an agritourism attraction in Weston. Atop one of the bluffs overlooking Weston, MO, the view of the apple orchard, vineyard, and pumpkin patch, is beautiful. With family-friendly fun and quality attractions, this is a new favorite for Kansas City families.

Some of our Favorite Features at Weston Orchard & Vineyard Pumpkin Patch:
The REAL Pumpkin Patch AND Apple Orchard! With GIANT pumpkins (up to 100 lbs), and smaller pumpkins (if you're like us, every child wants their own pumpkin), this was a beautiful patch with on-the-vine pumpkins to pick. At .35/lb their prices were very reasonable. Enjoy a hayride out to the patch and ride past the apple trees and grape vines. You may pick apples also at $2/lb. We found beautiful, large, red delicious apples near the patch. There are many varieties of apples and the availability of varieties will change throughout the season. Our family chose a medium sized pumpkin and four small bags of apples. Then, we rode the wagon back up the hill to the shop.
The play areas! At Weston Orchard & Vineyard, we parked at the top of the hill near the shop tent. On one side, we found photo ops, an apple cannon, and jumping pillow... then you walk over that hill a bit and find the rat racers, corn crib, hay mountain, and pick up for hayrides. On the other side of the parking lot, we found the obstacle course and zipline and entrance to the corn maze. FREE Admission includes ALL of these attractions! The only play area fee is apples for the cannon (optional)..
The Jumping Pillow: The jumping pillow was FANTASTIC. My girls said it was one of the springiest jumping pillows ever.
The Corn Crib: The corn crib is large and fun. This classic pumpkin patch attraction is well done and a fave for kids. My girls will always play in corn cribs as long as possible and this was no exception.
The Rat Racers: The rat racers are unique! This was our first time to try them and the girls loved them... you race your friends to see who can run fastest inside their tube to the finish line.
The Hay Bale Mountain: Kids love to climb the tower of hay!
Fun Photo Ops: This is a pumpkin patch must and these are really cute and well done.
The Apple Cannon: Children launch apples at the target... this is the only attraction with an additional fee.
The Corn Maze: The corn maze is a simple maze. They don't provide maps or clues, but you don't need them. There are dead-ends and twists and turns, but we still completed the maze in less than 10-minutes... IDEAL for young children and families.
The Zipline and Obstacle Course: This fun play area offers fun obstacles. The kids enjoyed racing to see who could complete the course first.
