Carpinito’s has a pumpkin patch, a Farm Fun Yard, hayrides, a produce stand, concessions, and a maze. This is a great patch to hit up if you don’t want to drive too far out into the country. The patch is a fairly low key experience, and the maze isn’t scary, but it’s plenty big enough to get good and lost in (at least I did).
Mosby boasts that their farm is simple, family fun! They have an old-fashioned pumpkin patch featuring their locally grown gourds, and a fancy corn maze with a different theme every year. On the weekends, you can hitch a tractor pulled hay ride (weather permitting). I believe the only charge (aside from anything you choose to purchase) is for the corn maze, which is 10.00/adults and 7.00/children . Kids under 3 are free.
Thomasson is a super friendly, family owned farm. There is a Kids’ Korral area, pumpkin sling shot, corn pit, corn maze, and hay rides! This place is tons of fun for families with younger children-although I see laser tag, which should appeal to bigger kids! Otherwise, rates range from $5.00-20.00, depending on what you want to do, you can check out the packages on their website. I believe the patch alone is free. Pumpkins are sold by a size chart. Parking is free. You’re asked to leave pets at home here.
Nothing scary at this pumpkin patch that is great for littles! Activities include a pumpkin slingshot, a 7 acre corn maze, and a hayride There are also a variety of items for sale, including lattes, apple cider, and kettle corn! This is a friendly, family run farm.
This is a favorite of SFM Facebook readers who love the farm animals and think it’s a good choice for younger children. Activities include the pumpkin patch, pumpkin sling shot, farm animals, face painting, candy store, corn maze and face painting. Head here for maze information. Note that the maze and slingshot have different times than the patch itself. Head here for their flyer with all info. Note that this is a very popular spot. We suggest you go early if you’re headed there on a weekend.

If you missed the Puyallup Fair this year, you can always get a great fair like experience at Maris Farms. There is a huge kids’ area, including corn pit, playground, face painting, and more. Not to be missed are the live pig races! The bigger kids love the jumping pillow, monster truck ride, pumpkin slingshot and pedal carts. There’s a traditional corn maze and Haunted Woods. And, you can even pick a pumpkin here! This is a good choice for your hard-to-impress tweens and teens. If you have younger kids, go on a weekday. The weekday admission is quite a bit lower than the weekends, but some food vendors and actives are unavailable. Hint: Check their discounts page and follow them on fb if you need a deal!
Photo op only! Are you looking for a nice, warm, indoor setting to get some pictures of your kids with pumpkins and fanciful mums? You can pose your little one in front of the specially designed pumpkin arrangements here without having to wait for strangers to walk out of the background or trying to coax a smile out of the freezing baby. Keep in mind the pumpkins are not for sale, so you’ll have to hit up Freddy’s on your way home. There is a suggested donation of $3 for admission. There is also a family friendly Halloween event here on the 31st (Yes, we’ll have a whole round up of them)! Patch Display Starts October 15th.
Formerly Terry’s Berries, this organic farm sells a variety of organically grown foods. In the past this has included pumpkins. We are still confirming for this year. I would not think of this as a patch experience, but I’ve included it because there are few certified organic options, and I know that’s important to some readers.
An especially good choice for young children. There are farm animals to see and a small, low key kids’ play area. Last year the tot sized corn maze was gone, and I don’t think it’s coming back, but I still need to check. There is no extra charge for activities here, and everything but your pumpkin and any other goodies you buy is free. My family loves this patch, but it is very simple compared to others. Be sure to check out their Facebook page for updates.

When the sun sets Rutledge not only offers the regular corn mazes but a Haunted Corn Maze and a Zombie Paintball adventure, too. We think those activities are best for teens and up, but we’ll let you decide.
Pattersons sort of creates their own patch. You won’t get a, “From the vine,” experience, and it isn’t huge, but it’s free fun, and there are tons of cute photo ops. It’s a nice choice if you just want a pumpkin and a pic.
This small, family farm has an emphasis on sustainable practices. They raise organic, heirloom pumpkins. Be sure to check their hours.
On a budget? You can skip the patch-a-palooza and still get some pumpkins at many area stands. Sterino Farms traditionally has at least one weekend when they offer 1.00 pumpkins!
Farther Afield….If you’re up for a country drive, there are a whole bunch of patches in Carnation, and while this is just out of our, “Territory,” it’s a nice mini road trip on a fall day. You can find options in that area on PugetSoundFresh
And, there you have it! Now, it’s time to get your gourd on! Be sure to share you pictures of your pumpkin adventures with us on our Sounds Fun Mom Facebook page. We’d also love to add to our list if there is one you’d really recommend!
