Whether you make your pumpkin patch visit a big family outing or a quick trip close to your home, 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.

If your favorite is not listed, please leave a comment telling us the name and location of the farm or email me and we’ll get it added.
