Pile in the car and head for pumpkin picking, hayrides, corn mazes, cider and catapulting squash
There’s nothing more fun than a pumpkin patch in October.
October is a great time to unearth the perfect pumpkin, enjoy farm activities, and gobble cider donuts while enjoying some family fun. Here are some of the best patches to explore during this harvest season.
Please note that most farms are not pet friendly. Also, be sure to bring cash as not every location accepts cards. Pack extra boots, and consider leaving the stroller at home to avoid getting it stuck in the mud. Be sure to check ahead before heading out as farms sometimes change their hours based on field and weather conditions.
