6 Perfect Pumpkin Patches To Check Out Around Columbus

Picking the perfect pumpkin can have its challenges.

Maybe you want to carve a giant jack-o-lantern? Or perhaps your family is more into painting pumpkins. It doesn’t matter what kind of pumpkin you are searching for, you can bet that you’ll find it at one of these amazing pumpkin patches around Central Ohio.

As usual, be sure to check out each pumpkin patch’s health and safety guidelines due to COVID-19 before you plan your visit. Be sure to wear a mask, keep physical distance from other pumpkin hunters, and practice good hand hygiene!
