Boulevard Flower Gardens: We love supporting this family owned business, and it’s fun to visit BFG even when it’s not pumpkin season. They have goats, alpaca, plenty of space to run. My kids love the play sets and ride-on toys. Typically there is a hay ride to the patch.
Swift Creek Berry Farm: For a low key and fun family day, Swift Creek Berry Farm is the place! Previously, they have offered pumpkin painting, and oversized blocks to play/build with.
Cross Creek Nursery: No updates yet on the Cross Creek Nursery Fall Festival, but it is a fun and simple place to pick out pumpkins, especially with littles. There are goats, a little slide, plenty of space to explore.
Grandma’s Pumpkins: If all you want is to go and pick out a pumpkin with no frills, Grandma’s Pumpkins on Courthouse Rd. is ideal for you. There is also a play set. Last year Grandma was accepting check/cash only, so be prepared!
Skinquarter Farm: A corn maze, fun photo ops, hay ride make Skinquarter Farm an exciting pumpkin patch! Last year we visited on a weekday morning and were the only ones out there! Picnic tables are out so you can make a full day of it!
