We have provided a link to the website for these pumpkin patches. Please use it to confirm the hours open, location, cost and attractions available at your local Kentucky pumpkin patch. Some pumpkin patches are open limited hours. We don’t want anyone showing up to find that the farm is closed!
We try to only include those farms which have u-pick pumpkin sections. There’s no need for us to include every Walmart or Home Depot selling pumpkins, is there? If you find that a farm only offers pumpkins that have been pre-picked, we will appreciate it if you let us know and we will remove it from the list. However, some farms in warm weather climates are forced to pick their pumpkins early in order to prevent them from rotting on the vine as they ripen prior to when you would pick them. There’s not much we can do under those circumstances and will do our best to only include those farms that offer a satisfying overall experience.
