Whether you’re trying to find the perfect pumpkin, or a place to take photos of your own little pumpkins, we’ve got a list of great pumpkin patches in the Lakeland area. Keep in mind that they will close once the pumpkins are gone!
A visit to the pumpkin patch is great family-friendly activity, and so is pumpkin carving. Since we live in Florida, we can’t carve our pumpkins very far in advance or they will rot. HGTV has a list of great tips for carving, lighting, and preserving your jack ‘o lantern.
Don’t miss our Ultimate Guide to Fall & Halloween Activities for a full list of fun things to do this fall in Lakeland and Central Florida including pumpkin patches, corn mazes, haunted houses, Halloween events, trunk or treat, drive-thru Halloween attractions and more.
All of the locations in the first section are free to visit and take photos with the pumpkins. All of them support local churches (usually youth groups), so if possible, show your support by making a purchase.
2020 Update – Some churches have made the difficult decision not to run their pumpkin patches this year but plan to return in 2021. Those are noted below, and we will continue to update this list as soon as we receive information.
We also have a list of corn mazes, farms, and fall festivals that have pumpkins but require paid admission.
Please check directly with local attractions about their safety precautions, social distancing, and mask policies.
