Welcome to The Pumpkin Patch, located in Ames, Iowa.

Teddy Bear ImageThe Pumpkin Patch opened 38 years ago as a small children’s clothing shop in The Livery in Boone, Iowa.  Our adjacent companion shop, A Different Drummer, offered toys and gifts.  In the Fall of 1985 we combined these under The Pumpkin Patch name and relocated to the old Eschbach Building on Main Street in Ames, Iowa.  With more space, a full collection of children’s books was added.  As a family-owned business, we have been able to steer our own course and have always “marched to a different drummer”.
