(Originally posted 10/2007 - Updated 8/27/2009)Here are some links to a few pumpkin patches. Pumpkin Patches are great not only for pumpkins but other fall crops as well. If you have one near you, please post it in the feedback and we'll add it to the list. We went to one last year for my grandson's birthday and had a blast!
Here's the story and pictures about our trip last year:
Irvine Park Railroad's 4th annual pumpkin patch is fun for the entire family! The pumpkin patch is open daily at 10:00 am beginning September 19th through November 1st. Irvine Park Railroad is centrally-located in Orange County, CA. Activities include: Train rides, hay rides, a haunted house, a hay maze, pony rides, a moon bounce, carnival games, face painting (weekends only), picture stands, great food and The Orange County Zoo. Admission is free; prices for other activities vary. Visit the web site for complete details, pricing, directions and photos from last year's event.
No doubt there are many, many more. This was all we had time to find. If you would like to recommend one in your area or if you own a pumpkin patch, post it below.

Part of my grandson's birthday festivities were held at Plumper Pumpkin Patch. For only $3 dollars per person, we got to participate in numerous activities. It was a fun and frugal birthday party.
