Pumpkin patches are agricultural areas where pumpkins are grown and harvested for sale to the public. They are often seasonal attractions that open in the fall, typically in September and October, and offer visitors the opportunity to pick their own pumpkins right from the field.
Pumpkin patches are popular family-friendly destinations and often feature additional activities such as hayrides, corn mazes, petting zoos, and other fall-themed attractions. Some pumpkin patches also offer food and beverages, such as hot apple cider and pumpkin pie.
Visitors to pumpkin patches can select pumpkins of various sizes, shapes, and colors to take home and carve into jack-o-lanterns for Halloween or use in fall decorations. Many pumpkin patches also offer pre-picked pumpkins for those who prefer not to pick their own.
Pumpkin patches can be found in many parts of the world, but are particularly popular in North America, where they are a beloved autumnal tradition.
