Pumpkin patches in Charleston, SC

With Halloween coming up, pumpkins are starting to pop up outside every grocery store + big-box chain. ๐ŸŽƒ

While it may be more convenient to snag your pumpkin during your weekly supermarket sweep, there is something nostalgic about traipsing through the dirt + vines to pick out the perfect jack-o-lantern. Having grown up in Western New York, feeling the crisp fall air whilst selecting a great gourd is on my top ten fall activities list.

Aside from having hundreds of options to choose from, many pumpkin patches also boast other niceties like fresh jams, apple cider, hayrides, haunted houses, and, if youโ€™re really luckyโ€“ a corn or pumpkin cannon.

So where can you get the full pumpkin patch experience? Keep scrolling forย six local pumpkin patches open this season.
