Several years ago, I went with my son’s kindergarten to the Yule Forest pumpkin patch. It was a lot of fun and I was amazed at all the activities available for the kids. Pumpkins were really an after thought, the real attraction was the fun zone with a HUGE jumpy pillow, bounce houses, play ship and kid-sized maze. There were animals galor including a petting zoo, bunny town and reptile house. There were even some educational elements like a video on growing pumpkins (where my son learned he needed to plant his seeds in July to have pumpkins in October) and displays about everything from Georgia to farming to recycling.

Earlier this month I did a round up of Pumpkin Patches in Atlanta. It’s been a popular post and I’ve had a good bit of feedback. It appears there is a huge difference between patches. Some offer lots of activities, like the Yule Forest, while others are quieter. Depending on your family and your budget, it helps to know before you go what kind of patch you’ll be visiting. If you’ve got a favorite pumpkin patch (or Christmas Tree lot), let us know about it and tell us what makes it so special. Are there a lot of things to do, or just enough? Let us know prices too. As much as I love the festival atmosphere, those $1 and $2 extras add up, especially when you have three kids, so sometimes we opt for the locations with fewer activities.
