It is finally pumpkin season, and everyone wants to make their favorite desserts, drinks or meals. Here are three top-rated pumpkin patches near Philadelphia to get your pick on.


Shady Brook Farm in Yardley is about an hour drive from Center City, Philadelphia. The farm has pumpkins you can choose from, and there are activities for all members of the family, children and adults alike. At nights, the farm hosts Fall Fest. If you wish to go beyond pumpkins and pick other fruits, options are on offer.


Country Barn in Lancaster is another family-friendly farm where you can pick your choice of pumpkin. The 82-acre farm provides an authentic experience with a market, a barnyard kingdom and a list of activities for a day of fun. Children can go on mini-wagon rides, and everyone can race around the Pedal Kart track, and you can line dance or watch a pig race. Tickets are available online or at the gate.


Springdale Farm Market in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, is a 9,600-square-foot farm where you can get fresh farm foods, baked products and enjoy a list of activities. It is the only working farm in New Jersey, and you can go on the pumpkin-picking hayride in search of your own. The farm also has a corn maze for a day or night of fun, and a plant yard that shows off a variety of plants and flowers for botany lovers.
