Rolling Racers

One of the biggest fascinations our children had is the way a “roly poly” (aka pill bug) can turn into a ball. Make your childhood dream’s come true by rolling into your own ball and racing your friends and family down the track.

Jeffy's Pumpkin Patch

It’s nostalgic to see a patch where you can pick real pumpkins off of the vine. Skinny Bones owner, Jeff (we call him Jeffy), has been growing pumpkins since he was just about the size of…. well, a pumpkin. We believe that the backbone of our farm is the patch and we hope you think so too.

Hayrack Rides

Take a break from the busyness of life! Experience fall with a hayrack ride that takes you out to the pumpkin patch.

Fire Pits

Rest with your group next to a nice fire, with two picnic tables provided! Available by reservation only, contact us to reserve a fire pit.

Eerie Trail

Ready for a wild adventure full of hair-raising excitement? The Eerie trail is a creepy fall journey, complete with unusual sights, scary surprises, and an optional “time-warping” trek through the vortex tunnel. Things may seem a bit out of place along this trail, but don’t worry you’ll be back in regular ole’ Nebraska once you’re through…

House of Mystery

Legend has it that a tornado hit the farm in 1912 that never really left. Since then, it’s been contained in this retired machine shop. All becomes a mystery when you step into this slanted building. Try to keep a “level” head in here, as gravity may offset your balance.

Mad Cow Ride

Let your kids hop on a cow cart and "moo" their way around the cow trail. The ride is suitable for small children up to 85lbs.

Our Story

The idea for Skinny Bones Pumpkin Patch began with Jeff Bledsoe. As a boy growing up in LaVista, Nebraska, Jeff planted pumpkins in his parent’s backyard every year, always so proud of his largest pumpkin in his patch.

After purchasing some land for a rental property, off of Highway 133 in Blair, Nebraska, Jeff stated that one day it would become a pumpkin patch. Maria, his wife would laugh, logically thinking, but not surprised when he set up his old pick-up truck at the end of the driveway, pumpkins a plenty and kids at hand, helping wave down cars. Skinny Bones Pumpkin Patch was established officially in 2008.

Jeff, being the visionary of the business, is a true kid at heart. Running his own auto repair shop during the day allows him to use his mechanical skills and his creative side at night. Today there are several attractions that were built by Jeff that have a special meaning to the Bledsoe family. The windmill was one of Maria’s birthday presents, the stage was built for his daughter Courtney’s wedding, and Jack-O- Shooters was built in loving memory of his late father, Jack Edward Bledsoe.

Maria is always on the go, and she wouldn’t have it any other way. Being a busy homemaker of five children, she quickly accepted the role of managing the business end. She handles all of the purchasing, hiring, scheduling, and delegating. She loves interacting with customers, friends, and people in general.

Jeff and Maria’s five children each played a vital role in their family business. Concession stand workers, face painters, maze designers, were just a few roles in their younger years. Throughout the years, their roles have changed as they moved into their adult lives. Photography, drone video footage, website design, marketing, and business management are just a few of their God given gifts in which they use today.

This is our 15th year of running Skinny Bones and it has been a true adventure. We have watched our children grow and have gained priceless memories through Nebraska’s agriculture. We strive to maintain good old fashion fun for our future generations, and to add new and exciting attractions. We thank you for being part of our family’s adventure and we welcome you as our guests!
