(Originally posted 10/2007 - Updated 8/27/2009) Here are some links to a few pumpkin patches. Pumpkin Patches are great not only for pumpkins but other fall crops as well. If you have one near you, please post it in the feedback and we'll add it to the list. We went to one last year for my grandson's birthday and had a blast!
Here's the story and pictures about our trip last year:
Irvine Park Railroad's 4th annual pumpkin patch is fun for the entire family! The pumpkin patch is open daily at 10:00 am beginning September 19th through November 1st. Irvine Park Railroad is centrally-located in Orange County, CA. Activities include: Train rides, hay rides, a haunted house, a hay maze, pony rides, a moon bounce, carnival games, face painting (weekends only), picture stands, great food and The Orange County Zoo. Admission is free; prices for other activities vary. Visit the web site for complete details, pricing, directions and photos from last year's event.
Here is a link to a list of pumpkin patches and corn mazes from Pick Your Own.org. Look for one in your local area here:
No doubt there are many, many more. This was all we had time to find. If you would like to recommend one in your area or if you own a pumpkin patch, post it below.
