Skinny Bones Pumpkin Patch


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. Pursuing his childhood dream, Jeff has retired from his auto repair shop and now works full-time for the family farm. 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 were built in loving memory of his late father, Jack Edward Bledsoe.

Jeff and Maria’s five children each played a vital role in their family business. Concession stands, face painting, and 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. In 2022 we were able to bring on our oldest daughter Courtney full-time and our youngest son Jared in 2023.  Photography, drone footage, website design, marketing, and business management are just a few of the God-given gifts which they use today.

This is our 17th 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!


Fun fall memories,

The Bledsoe Family
