Pumpkin Patch Season is here!

It’s that time of year when pumpkins take over our front porches and social media feeds. Sure, you can grab one from the local farmers’ market or grocery store, but for a more immersive experience, head to the country to pick your own pumpkin this fall. The spirit of fall is on perfect display with the enchanting sight of bright round pumpkins shining like jewels against the glossy green leaves of a pumpkin patch. It’s a joy for kids to wander through dozens of colorful pumpkins in search of the ideal shape, the perfect size, or the irresistible one too heavy to carry. Many of these farms and orchards offer additional activities for kids, including hayrides, petting zoos, corn mazes, and train rides, so you can expand your hunt into a family day trip. We have compiled a list of pumpkin patches, so you can start planning your fall activities now.
