These 9 Charming Pumpkin Patches In North Carolina Are Picture Perfect For A Fall Day

It’s officially October and if you’re like me, you’re already setting up the Halloween decorations and reeling in the spOoKy vibe. One central figure to any fall or halloween setup are pumpkins and of course, a couple carved into jack-o-lanterns. One fall memory for many North Carolinians includes heading out to the pumpkin patch and wandering through the field of big, small, and ginormous orange pumpkins…eventually finding the perfect one to take home. These nine pumpkin patches give that experience and so much more.

I love how all listed feature so much more than a pumpkin patch, but an entire adventure rolled into one!
