4 Reasons to Visit an Apple Hill™ Pumpkin Patch This Fall

Fall is here. Halloween is fast approaching. And ‘tis the season for pumpkins. Nothing embodies the spirit of this season more than pumpkin carving, pumpkin pies, and, of course, delicious pumpkin spice lattes. So why not thoroughly embrace fall by visiting a pumpkin patch in Apple Hill™?

Visiting a pumpkin patch is fun for everyone in the family! It allows you to pick out the perfect pumpkin right off the vine, and some farms also offer a host of other things, such as hayrides, pony rides, craft workshops, food tastings, and more.

Here are some of the reasons why an Apple Hill™ pumpkin patch needs to be on your list of must-visits this October:

Find the perfect pumpkin

This is perhaps the most apparent reason for visiting a pumpkin patch, but there is no denying that a pumpkin patch is the best place to find autumnal squash for your jack-o’-lanterns. Discover hundreds of pumpkins in varying colors (yes, pumpkins come in lots of different colors) and sizes spread across acres, allowing you to find one (or a few) that perfectly meets your needs – for carving or cooking.

Take beautiful photos

There is no reason why you should visit a pumpkin patch and not make a photoshoot out of it! Whether for your social media or Thanksgiving greeting cards, a pumpkin patch will make a stunning backdrop for your photographs. The options are endless: pose with a pumpkin, in the corn maze, or on a hay bale. Moreover, if this is your little one’s first pumpkin patch, you can use this opportunity to document their precious moments with a cute photo op.

Make lasting memories

Pumpkin patches scream family fun and are a great way to spend time and make memories with your loved ones. So make a tradition of visiting the Apple Hill™ pumpkin patches every year, starting this year! Then, down the line, when you look back at the time you spent in pumpkin patches, you can enjoy the happy memories.

Support local farms

To support local farms in Apple Hill™, visit a pumpkin patch. Most pumpkin patches charge a small entry fee in addition to selling pumpkins, pumpkin desserts, and more. This allows them to sustain their business and serve customers. So, instead of getting your holiday squash at a supermarket, head to Apple Hill™ and enjoy all the fantastic things the local farms have to offer.

Experience unbridled family fun this fall at an Apple Hill™ pumpkin patch. You’ll find plenty of farms that host the widest selection of outdoor activities for both kids and adults, making Apple Hill™ an excellent destination that the entire family can visit and enjoy.
