A Dallas Pumpkin Patch Guide


There’s something so charming about bringing your kids to the pumpkin patch every year and helping them pick out the “best” one. If you’re in a hurry you can get a Trader Joe’s pumpkin cheap and easy, but we wanted to give you a list of proper patches to chose from, too. Our round up below includes everything from smaller church pumpkin lots to massive farms with corn mazes, hayrides, and more. (Make sure to scroll to the end to find all posts “pumpkins”!)
