This is intended to be a challenging, yet fun event.  Mahaffy Ranch is a u-pick pumpkin patch located at 10362 Hwy 241, Coos Bay (~15 miles from Coos Art Museum towards Allegany, approx. ½ hour drive).  It lends itself extremely well to seasonal, farm related plein air paintings.  Nestled along the Millicoma River amid the mountains, this 95+ acre ranch features a huge pumpkin patch, corn maze, farm animals, tractors, corn cannon, hay rides, and harvest store decorated with every color, shape and size gourd and pumpkin imaginable.
