Find a local pumpkin patch

Looking for a local pumpkin patch, corn maze, hayride, gourds and other Halloween activities in Southeastern New Hampshire?  Scroll down this page and you will see the all of thoses in Southeastern New Hampshire, sorted by county. Some are farms, where you take a hay ride out into the field, others are elaborate farm stands with mountains of pumpkins and other activities and some are simple roadside stands.  Most have loads of pumpkins to choose from.  To really make it fun for  your kids, look for those that have the extra activities, like a corn maze, spook house, or hayride.  There is usually a small fee for the mazes (of course, the  more elaborate mazes tend to charge more.

    A visitor writes on September 23, 2009: "I drove a half hour with my 1 year old son, after seeing their website. They list they have a pumpkin patch which parents like to use for taking pictures of their children. VERY disappointed. 1. After gathering MANY items to purchase in the store, I go to pay and find out they ONLY ACCEPT CASH. I was dumbfounded in 2009 if you have a big enough operation to have a store that you don't take cards!!!! They even take Pie orders for Thanksgiving...they do this all with cash?? I don't really care-its their choice however they should REALLY consider at least listing this on their website, because I wouldn't have bothered if I saw that. 2. The pumpkin area was TINY, there couldn't of been more than maybe 75.....and they were in a box-type seclusion, so I don't know how anyone could feel invited to take pictures or sprawl through the obvious made-for-retail-section.
