Visiting pumpkin patches makes for fun family outings. Whether you choose one close to your home or a few hours away, be sure to consult our list first! Most of these patches will not begin selling pumpkins until early October (although some do start the end of September), and many activities have been modified so make sure you call before you go.

Below we list a variety of pumpkin patches in the Triad and surrounding areas. If you didn’t see your favorite, please leave a comment telling us the name and location of the farm or email us and we’ll get it added.
