It’s officially pumpkin patch szn!
I’ve rounded up a list of all Cincinnati pumpkin patches for fall 2023. There’s a pumpkin patch that’s perfect for everyone on this list. From farms with so many fun fall attractions that it will take all day to your simple, hayride to the pumpkin patch to pick a pumpkin straight off the vine variety. And this year, I’ve included pumpkin patches that also have apple picking – for the full fall experience.
For a real GOURD time, scroll to the bottom to check out a list of local pumpkin festivals too!
The pumpkin patches are all within about an hour and a half drive of Cincinnati. Who knew we had so many great pumpkin spots so close to the Queen City?
