Whether you make your pumpkin patch visit a big family outing or a quick trip close to your home, consult our list first! These patches have been added to our list because of a recommendation by a friend or reader – or because of our own personal experience. This year we added other fun things you can do at these patches (such as hay rides, corn mazes, story times, etc) and noted them below where applicable!
Most of these patches will not begin selling pumpkins until early October (although some do start the end of September), so make sure you call the patch before you go. Also, be sure to visit our list of Triad-area Fall Festivals too. Many of these festivals offer pumpkin patches too!
If your favorite is not listed, please leave a comment telling us the name and location of the farm or email Katie@TriadMomsOnMain.com and we’ll get it added.
