It’s pumpkin season! Here at Patterson Farm, we love all things pumpkin and we can’t wait to share this season with you! We are stocked full of pumpkins, ingredients for delicious pumpkin recipes, and our pumpkin patch is ready for you to come and visit.

 

Pick-Your-Own Pumpkins

You can pick the pumpkin from the patch for free or just pick it up from the market. If you would like to participate in Fall Fun on the Farm Weekday activities or Weekend Fun on the Farm activities, you have to pay an additional fee.

If you are already on the farm for a Fall Fun on the Farm event, your visit to the pumpkin patch is included but the price of the pumpkin is not. To get your tickets for Fall Fun on the Farm Weekdays click here. These attractions only run through October 30, Monday-Friday 10 a.m.- 6 p.m. For tickets to Fall Weekends on the Farm click here. These attractions run through November 1.

If you don’t have the time to stop and enjoy our beautiful pumpkin patch, our market is currently stocked for fall with bright, round pumpkins and more are on their way every day! Stop in with your friends and family to pick the perfect pumpkin for decorating your home or for carving jack-o-lanterns. Pumpkins are priced by the pound. The market is open Monday – Saturday from 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. and Sunday 12 – 6 p.m.
