‘tis the season for carving jack-o’-lanterns, picking apples and enjoying all of the beautiful fall colors! But, before you can transform your pumpkin into a scary monster or fun character, you have to choose the perfect pumpkin! Find a list of pumpkin patches in Virginia below. And once you’re done picking out your pumpkin, be sure to stay to check out the fall activities, decorations and produce offered at these farms and garden centers.
All throughout October, visitors can purchase local apples, pumpkins, squash, kettle corn, apple cider, donuts and more at the festival market! There is also a fall festival during the weekends filled with all sorts of family friendly activities. Visitors can enjoy going down various slides, local tastings, a goat village, a tractor museum and so much more!
DePaul’s Urban Farm has all of your fall favorites! Guests to the farm can choose from different kinds of pumpkins, gourds, mums and sunflowers. While exploring the farm, pick up some fresh apple cider and an apple cider donut. We recommend visiting the farm at dusk, as it is truly beautiful lit up for the night.
Pumpkin Hills is back at Nalls! This is a free play area for kids to crawl through tunnels, play games and find their perfect pumpkin! At Nalls Produce Inc., you can not only find pumpkins, but also fall produce that are at their peak freshness. Kale, sweet potatoes, broccoli, apples, squash and other fresh fruits and vegetables are for sale at the farm.
Burke Nursery & Garden Center has a large selection of pumpkins, gourds, corn stalks and other fall and Halloween novelties.
