25+ Best Pumpkin Patches in Georgia for a Smashing-Good Time

If you ask me, fall doesn’t officially start until there is a pretty pumpkin dressing your front stoop. And a pumpkin from the grocery store won’t do – you need the memories and excitement of picking that gem from one of the local pumpkin patches in Georgia.

Sometimes you need something more than just “Find a Pumpkin Patch near me.” Sometimes you need just the right type of patch for your family. Is that an intimate u-pick in North Ga on a weekend? Or an adventure-packed occasion with pumpkins, rides, games and more…sitting near the city? Whatever your fancy, we’ve got it listed below.

We’ve compiled the list of Georgia pumpkin patches – most near the Atlanta metro area. Please let me know if there is any farm that I missed from the list. We try our best to provide the most accurate information for you. However, things do change so please make sure to call ahead before packing up the family!
