Pumpkin Patch to benefit Arkansas Sheriffs’ Youth Ranches

The Arkansas Sheriffs’ Youth Ranches (ASYR) is holding its second annual Pumpkin Patch, and this year visitors will have the full month of October to enjoy it. Presented by First Community Bank, the event includes one pumpkin per visitor and free access to activities such as the train ride, the hayride, bouncy houses, a petting zoo, a corn pit, a corn maze, carnival games and more.

Last year over 1,000 visitors came out and enjoyed the pumpkin patch in just six days, so this year, the patch is open for the full month of October, the ranch noted in a release.

Admission is only $10 per person and admission is free for children ages two years of age or younger. Cash, check, credit and debit cards are all accepted.

All net proceeds from the Pumpkin Patch benefit the mission of the Arkansas Sheriffs’ Youth Ranches, which provides safe, healthy, and loving homes for Arkansas children, the release noted. To learn more go to: The ranch is located at 100 Saint Vincent Place, just west of Batesville, near Bethesda.

The patch is open to the public Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday by group reservation only at (870) 793-6841, ext. 300, or email
