Sure, you could go to Safeway and pick up your seasonal squash, but what’s the fun in buying your Halloween pumpkin from the same place you get your Corn Flakes.

Pumpkin patch mapFor True Northwesterners, nothing beats pulling on the muck boots, packing up the kids into the Family Truckster and heading out into the countryside for a seasonal outing to the pumpkin patch. South Sound farms offers a wide variety of seasonal produce and activities this month, ranging from straight ahead u-pick pumpkins to full-fledged fall carnivals with elaborate corn mazes, hay rides and kiddie activities. It’s a great family tradition, that also helps support local, family farms.

To help get you on your way, we’ve created this South Sound Pumpkin Patch map highlighting farms offering pumpkins and activities this year. See you out there!
