Best Pumpkin Patches Around
Halloween is just around the corner and as you start to shop for the perfect costumes for your kids, don’t forget all of the other fun traditions the harvest season brings, like exploring the beauty of fall foliage, apple cider, and of course, visiting pumpkin patches to find the perfect pumpkin.
Finding Pumpkin Patches in Hartford
Visiting pumpkin patches is one of the most delightful traditions of the harvest season. There are many choices in the Hartford area that parents rave about. We recommend finding a pumpkin patch with more activities than just picking out a pumpkin. For example, many Hartford area farms open up their land for corn and hay mazes, serve apple cider, and offer hayrides.
