When it’s time for family and time for fall, there’s no place more fun than Motley’s Pumpkin Patch, just a short drive from all parts of central Arkansas.
Beautiful pumpkin patch, thousands to choose from!
Pick your own pumpkins right off the vine. Tractor-drawn wagon rides into the fields and around the farm. We have pumpkins of every size and shape, from the very huge to tiny table decorations. Great assortment of gourds, corn shocks, mums and hay bales for your decorating.
Pumpkins priced individually.
Every day at Motley’s Pumpkin Patch feels like a festival. The kids will love the wagon rides, and after that, they can visit with our large selection of farm animals—goats, sheep, chickens, and pigs. Animal feed is available. We also have some tremendous play areas where kids can run and play in the hay, climb the hay bales and slide down our twisty slides, and simply enjoy the fresh air and wide open spaces on the farm.
Yup, real pigs, racing around the track to see who gets the extra carrots. The winner always makes a pig of himself (or herself, as the case may be.) The farmer is on hand to help you anticipate who’s fast, and who’s likely stop and taste the daisies.
Our pigs love to hear the crowd cheer them on, and seem to truly like the attention—we have to admit there are some real hams in the race!
We carry a great assortment of fall decorations, country gifts, toys, candy, homemade fudge, and refreshments.
In 1982, Randy and Linda Motley planted 2,000 Christmas trees as the beginning of Motley’s Tree Farm. Randy’s parents, Ralph and Darlene, helped them with the planting, and by 1986, the Motley’s were operating three farms in Arkansas: Tar Camp Christmas tree farm in Redfield, Willow Springs Christmas tree farm in Little Rock, and a wholesale Christmas tree farm in Hensley. They had nearly 30,000 trees in production.
But by 1997, the Motley’s had learned that it was a lot more fun to sell Christmas trees directly to the families that will be taking them home. They left the wholesale market, and began inviting the public to come out to the farm in Little Rock to choose and cut their very own Christmas trees. In 2008, they added the Motley’s Pumpkin Patch at the same location.
Randy notes that they have been providing beautiful, locally grown Christmas trees to Central Arkansas families for approximately three decades now. “I’ve watched families come year after year, and seen their children grow up,” he said. “And now, those kids are bringing their children to enjoy the same family tradition.”
“A while back, people just came out, found their tree, and went back home, but now we offer a terrific time on the farm for the whole family, with play areas, pig races, and a beautiful store full of both Halloween and Christmas decorations and much more. The Motley’s Pumpkin Patch offers a great day of fall fun, and is already becoming another Motley’s tradition for Arkansas families.“
When you visit us, please do introduce yourselves. You’ll likely see Randy, Linda, Ralph and Darlene, as well as Randy and Linda’s son, Michael. At lot of the rest of the fall and winter crew are family members—brothers, sisters, nieces and nephews—it’s a family affair, and we hope you’ll enjoy a day becoming a part of the family!
Randy likes to say “Motley’s Tree farm is central Arkansas’ best kept secret—only our friends know about us. But then, one trip to our farm, and you’ll be a friend too!“
