Pumpkin Patches Near Atlanta

Halloween will be here before you know it, which means it’s time for me to ask the question, where is the best place for pumpkin picking near me? Then the boys and I can go pick out the perfect pumpkin to carve into a jack-o-lantern.

I hate to just pick up a pumpkin on our weekly shopping trip, I like to make it an event by visiting a pumpkin farm.

If you have another favorite pumpkin patch near Atlanta, leave a comment and we’ll add it to the list.

The Rock Ranch is not your average pumpkin patch. Its an adventure destination like none other. From a miniature locomotive train ride, to flying through the air on amazing ziplines, to exploring a complete miniature town just for kids.

Here’s a post I did on the Yule Forest Pumpkin Patch. You can pick your pumpkins off the vine here, but call first to make sure they still have some on the vine. (sometimes pick your own pumpkin just means, choose from the array we have lying around, so if actually picking it off the vine is what you want, make sure before you go that the establishment you are visiting doesn’t just lay the pumpkins out.)

In addition to pumpkins, enjoy a jumping pillow, petting zoo, Halloween hayride, crazy maze, bee house, puppet show, and a science center. New this year is the chicken coop.

7 Comments on 13+ “Smashing” Pumpkin Patches Near Atlanta [coupon]

  1. Thanks for the list! We visited Burt’s Farm last year and for some reason had a hard time finding it, but once we did it was really nice with TONS of pumpkins to choose from. Thinking the Stone Mountain one might be nice this year. 🙂

  2. Any guidance on a pumpkin patch ITP especially Buckhead, Brookhaven, Morningside.
    We just want to take some photos with our 12 week old so it doesn’t have to be extravagant. I’ve scoured the Web but the local ppatch info is out of date. Or results in page errors. Thanks.

    • Deb, I’d try some of the local churches. I know our church HAD a pumpkin patch, but they canceled it this year. Sometimes the local elementary school will do it as a fund raiser as well. Good luck. Let me know what you find.

  3. We went to a great patch just outside Atlanta last year and we can’t find it this year! I remember it was off of Snapfinger road somewhere. The thing we liked the most is that the “jumping pillow” was giant and kids and adults were allowed on with no time restrictions. Any idea which patch this was?

    • I know the Yule Forest has a jumpy pillow. Yule Forest is in Stockbridge, the link is within the post here. I’m not sure of a pumpkin patch on Snapfinger. I think this is the one you want. I googled pumpkin patch snapfinger and it came up.
