The Halloween season has just about come and gone, but if you’re looking for things to do in Boise during the month of October, you have to know about Linder Farms! We recently took a trip out there and had to tell someone about it. Word of warning though, if you’re heading out there from almost anywhere in Boise or Eagle, it’s quite the haul! But don’t let the arrival time on your GPS discourage you, it’s well worth the trip!               

Originally, we decided to check out Linder Farms for its pumpkins, but we were blown away with everything else they had to offer! Like two little kids in an amusement park, we took the hayride out to the pumpkin patch where there was a shockingly huge selection of pumpkins and all types of squash for the picking. My teenager was beyond ecstatic about the number of perfectly round, fat, orange pumpkins that were to be found and we each chose a winner. We were able to quickly weigh them and set them aside so we could see what else was in store.
Aside from the pumpkin patch, Linder Farms offers a corn maze, a haunted trail of terror, a petting zoo, pony rides, a bonfire and lots of other fun rides and toys to play with! They also had a full menu of freshly-made, fall-like, fried snacks – donuts, corn dogs, fries, kettle corn, caramel corn, nachos and hot chocolate & cider. We definitely took advantage of the culinary services and much to the dismay of my buddy, I almost downed her whole bag of yummy caramel corn.
Overall, the best thing about Linder Farms was the wonderful atmosphere. It was the perfect fall activity and being so far away from town, it had an extremely authentic feel. We were there on a Monday night but the place was packed – in a good way! Plenty of room for all, but lots of smiles and happiness floating around. Linder Farms is open Monday – Thursday, 5 to 9 PM. On Fridays, it stays open until 10 PM and on Saturdays, it opens at 10 AM and closes at 10 PM. Its final day of the season is November 1st so not much time left! Make your way out there just before sunset to enjoy the expansive sky and partake in some good ol’ fashion fall cheer!
