Local Pumpkin Patch Guide

September 21, 2023

Pumpkin Patches are the traditional place for fall family fun. We love to visit the pumpkin patch and let our kids choose their own pumpkins to paint, and help pick out the best large pumpkin to turn into our front porch jack-o-lantern. Most places will also have the cutest backdrops for your DIY Fall Family Photos. Here is a list of pumpkin patches in and around Hickory ready for you to visit! I will add to this list as more local spots get their pumpkin deliveries. Do you want your favorite pumpkin patch added to this list? Email me:
