Create Pumpkin Patch Memories

My family is big on tradition and one of our favorite fall activities is bundling up and heading out for the official selection of pumpkins at a pumpkin patch. We usually bring home our pumpkins and carve them while drinking apple cider and eating warm oatmeal cookies. We also love snatching up a few baby sized pumpkins that we color with a sharpie as an extra thing to do while waiting to carve each kid’s pumpkins.

 

Here’s a list of the pumpkin patch experiences in Huntington County. We hope your family enjoys it as much as we do.

 

 

Gebhart’s Floral Barn in Warren

The pumpkins are already picked from the vines and ready for you to choose your favorite. The Floral Barn is located just a few minutes outside of Warren on E. 1000 S. Stop by to get fall plants and flowers, home decor and don’t forget the pumpkins. They are reasonably priced…only $2 each or 50 cents for the smaller heirloom ones. They also have a selection of hand-made pottery items made right on the property – you should definitely check that out. Open Mon-Fri 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sat. 9 a.m. to noon.

Jack’s Patch

 

Jack’s Patch

Conveniently located just east of Huntington directly on US 24 is Jack’s Patch. You can come right out to the patch to select your favorite and be on your way in just a few minutes. Jack’s is open through the week from 5 to 7 in the evenings and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday.

 

 

Phil’s U-Pick

This is one of our favorite u-pick experiences. Not only does Phil have plenty of pumpkins to pick from, but you can also pick up gourds, squash, and his main product, apples. There are over 20 varieties of apples to pick from. It’s great fun for the kids. Phil’s is located at 760 N 500 W Huntington and is open daily 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

 

 

 

Wholesome Meadows Farm

Head out to the brand new farm store of this local farm who is offering all types of farm fresh goodness. Located at  corner of Hwy 9 and 900N north of Huntington, they are open Sunday though Friday 1 to 7 p.m. and on Saturday 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. There are plenty of pumpkins ranging from $1-7. While there, take time to check out the new shop that features eggs, locally sourced meat, local honey and furniture and crafts. They are still getting situated so make sure you stop back again soon to see their progress.
