Find a local pumpkin patch

Looking for a local pumpkin patch, corn maze, hayride, gourds and other Halloween activities in Northeastern South Carolina?  Scroll down this page and you will see the all of those in Northeastern South Carolina, 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. Hayrides are often free. ALWAYS call before you go to confirm the info, they don't always report changes to me!

Updates for December 2021

Most pumpkin patches  and corn mazes usually open by mid September, some earlier! You may also like a local zombie event or Zombie Paintball!. The world's best pumpkin pie recipe is here, and the pie crust recipe is here! And we have home canning, preserving, drying and freezing directions. You can access many pumpkin and other recipes and other resources from the drop down menus at the top of the page or the site search.

Keep in mind, many farms, pumpkin patches, corn mazes and Haunted Houses are trying to cope with rapidly changing state COVID requirements: ALWAYS see their own website, Facebook page or call them before you go.

NOTE: Many of the farms are dropping their websites and switching to Facebook pages - but they don't tell anyone, including search engines like Google, Bing, Yahoo or us, or redirect their website,  thus breaking all links to them. If a link is broken please click the "click here to report a broken link or blank page" so we can find the replacement link! Thanks!

After Halloween, find a Christmas tree at a local Christmas tree farm (and enjoy a bonfire, smore, hot chocolate and free hayrides, and often Santa visits! And next Spring, you'll want to take your children to a free Easter egg hunt - see our companion website to find a local Easter Egg hunt.  If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to write me!
