At Prairie Home Farm in Coeur d'Alene Idaho we are thrilled to share our 1920's farm with all its hand picked antique decorations ( a mindful of ideas for any picker). For a small admission we have pumpkins in the field, fall produce and decorations up front and all the usual farm animals throughout the property to follow you and your family as you meander through the farm. We sell feed for the animals and have stories being TOLD in the barn one Saturday in the month. Family photo ops are everywhere. Just picture farm vignettes with bright fall colors for back grounds. Open to the public only the month of October, its a perfect slowed down afternoon to be enjoyed with your family.

Pumpkin Picking

Grab a radio flier, head back to the patch. When the perfect pumpkin for you is found, well get a general idea of its weight/price in front at our cute little shed with one of many antique scales dotted throughout the property.



Farm Animal Feeding

Pigs, sheep, horses, goats. chickens, gees, ducks, rabbits. Throw in a few farm dogs and barn cats and let the show begin. In their pens, barns, pastures and coops. Most visitors buy food for feeding but be careful- if it has a mouth it can bite! (what do these geese have to be so angry about?). A bag of food can be purchased with different feed for all.


Self-Guided Tours

For a small admission price with or without a wagon in tow. Start in the patch, head back to the milking barn. Collect pumpkins to purchase and take all the pictures you want. Swing on the swing but don't miss the 500 lbs. pigs. We will all be waiting for you partners.



Family Photo Ops

1950’s tractor, rustic implements scattered throughout the property, sunflowers, and misc. greenery for bright Fall colored back drops. A building made of beans, squash and corn (seriously). And the latest addition- a 1948 dodge flatbed pick-up and of course like every year, the picture station- a sitting area of straw bales, corn stalks, pumpkins and hats for everyone to wear for the pose.



Story Telling In The Barn

An annual event, usually presented on the second to last Saturday in October. The Spokane story telling league spins and weaves in the traditional manner; stories of farms, animals, and Halloween. (Nothing too scary) Check website for specifics.





Pumpkin is called for in some of America's earliest written recipes. In 1672, writer John Josselyn included instructions for cooking stewed pumpkin in his journal New-England's Rarities Discovered, suggesting it be served with fish or meat.


Dear Prairie Home Farm,


We had a wonderful time at your farm last Saturday. The pumpkins we chose were just right and my Grand Daughter loved the animals- especially being allowed to feed them. (The “people food” is a nice touch!) Thank you so much for a great experience.

- Sincerely, Ann, Sonja, (4) and Rosie (11 months)
