Until the stands, farms, and patches open up for you to pick your perfect pumpkin, it doesn't quite feel like fall in Howard County. Get ready to display fall colors proudly on the porch, carve the perfect jack-o-lantern, or bake your favorite pumpkin treat after visiting these pumpkin patches!
Clark’s Elioak Farm is not only a place to find your pumpkin, but also the place to participate in fall fun! In addition to their pumpkin patch, Clark’s Farm has a rope maze, face painting, and of course, their iconic enchanted forest. They have special weekends throughout the month of October, where they host different events while you pick your pumpkins!
Larriland Farm is a go-to place to pick your own, and pumpkins aren’t an exception! Larriland recently purchased more land to harvest their pumpkins, so you have even more to choose from. While you're there, take a hayride to the pumpkin patch, run through the straw maze, and enjoy a cup of hot apple cider.
One of Howard County’s newest pumpkin patches, Mullinix Corn Maze is a destination the whole family will love! While you’re there to pick out your pumpkin, check out their ten-acre corn maze, pumpkin bowling game, and rubber duck races. A portion of the corn maze admission goes towards St. Jude’s Childrens Hospital, yet another reason to check it out!
Find pumpkins galore at Sharp’s at Waterford Farm! Pick your perfect pumpkin, feed the farm animals, and take a hayride through Cattail Creek while you’re there. During the fall season, Sharp’s offers fun farm tours with special themes, like Pilgrim History and a Day in the Life of a Farmer!
Triadelphia Lake View Farm is known for their Christmas trees, but a little known fact is that they also have a pumpkin patch! Take a hayride to the pumpkin patch to pick your own, and visit the farm animals, ride on the pedal tractors, and participate in other entertaining farm activities while you’re there.
