Pick Your Pumpkin in Columbia! 

When you think about autumn in Columbia, so many fun festivities come to mind: pumpkin flavored coffee and pastries at all of your favorite coffee shops, the leaves changing from green to shades of yellow, orange and red on the downtown square, Halloween costumes and candy at Haunting at the District, and pumpkin patches! 

There is no fall tradition more classic than going with friends and family to a local pumpkin patch. Not only can you pick out that perfect pumpkin to carve, you can also enjoy hay mazes, pumpkin painting, hay rides, and scavenger hunts. Because of the hard work local farmers put in to harvest those perfect pumpkins, pumpkin patches get to be a staple fall activity that we know and love each and every year. 

Here are some local pumpkin patches to enjoy in this fall season!

Pumpkin Paradise

Right in the heart of Columbia you can find Pumpkin Paradise at Satterwhite Farms! This popular pumpkin picking spot has everything you’re looking for on a fall day. From swings and slides to corn boxes, climbing tires, and hay rides, you’ll leave Satterwhite Farms with a pumpkin and satisfied.
