2016 Guide to Pumpkin Patches Around Columbia

2016 Guide to Pumpkin Patches Around Columbia - Columbia SC Moms Blog

Fall is my favorite time of year. I start thinking about all the things pumpkin spice as early as the end of July. This past August, I got a jump start on the season by making some delicious, healthy pumpkin dark chocolate chip muffins. Yum!

Now that it is officially pumpkin season, I can’t wait to go back to some of the Midlands most popular pumpkin patches and enjoy all the fun they have to offer with my daughter and family. To help you on your quest for the perfect jack-o-lantern, here’s a list of some of our favorite patches across the Columbia area! (And once pumpkin season is over, check out these ways you can use your pumpkin for baking!)

    Clinton Sease Farm does not open at 10 am on Sundays. We were sadly informed upon arrival that they do not open until 2pm. Please update your site to avoid more disappointed children on Sundays.
