After my post last week with my favorite pumpkin patches in the Bay Area, I got to thinking about what the best of the best are in the rest of the United States. With the help of my friends and family, I have put together a list of the best pumpkin patches across the U.S. In no particular order, I present you my selections:
Brush Creek Farms in Dayton, Tennessee
Smolak Farms in North Andover, Massachusetts
Goebbert’s Pumpkin Patch in Hampshire, Illinois
Anderson Farms in Erie, Colorado
Craven Farm in Snohomish, Washington
Burt’s Farm in Dawsonville, Georgia
Treworgy Orchards in Levant, Maine
Jumbo’s Pumpkin Patch in Middleton, Maryland
Plumper Pumpkins in Portland, Oregon
Lombardi Ranch in Saugus, California–It suffered some loss through the fire last year, but is back this year with fun things for families to do.
I focused on finding pumpkin patches that offer a whole day of entertainment; hay rides, corn mazes, picnic areas, petting zoos, pumpkin contests, everything. And, mind you, these are totally subjective and not everyone’s idea of pumpkin patches, so I would love to hear about your favorites!
Do you have a hidden gem in your area? How about a place you would drive 60 minutes to see? Or something that your kids ask to visit year after year? Share your best, we would love to know!
