Pumpkin Lattes. Spiced bread. Pumpkin pie. Pumpkin beer.
T’is the season in South Florida for all things pumpkin and fall. Unfortunately the weather does not come close to even reflecting the change in season, so we South Floridians rely upon pumpkins to set the tone…and nothing says pumpkin more than a good ole South Florida PUMPKIN PATCH.
Today we shall focus on two can’t miss South Florida pumpkin patches for Fall; one in the west and one that is east.
Bedner’s Farms has kicked off the start of their pumpkin patch!
Located on 441 in Boynton Beach, Bedner’s does a phenomenal job attempting to capture the essence of the season…if only the sweltering weather would cooperate.
My family and I hauled ourselves to the farm ready for the season, only to be met with stifling heat. We had a wonderful time taking pictures in the patch as we picked out our pumpkin, and spent the remainder of our time exploring all of the additional activities they had to offer.
Food trucks, crafts, gem mining, hay rides, bounce houses, a genuine cornfield maze, pony rides and a petting zoo add to the photo opps that cannot be beat for you and your family!
It does take a bit of time to get there and parking can be a pain, but it is well worth a visit. Especially if you can get there as it opens, which is 10 a.m. on Sundays and 9 a.m. the remaining 6 days of the week.
MBMom Tip: Make sure you bring CASH! You can buy your pumpkin and produce with a credit card, but the extras such as the bounce house/petting zoo, are cash only.
441 too far to get your pumpkin patch experience? Join Saint Ambrose School for their annual pumpkin patch!
Saint Ambrose is located in Deerfield Beach, but quite close to Boca Raton. Located off Federal Highway, just south of Hillsboro, this pumpkin patch is just in front of their church; look for the large tent.
The pumpkin patch starts October 16th and ends on October 31st and all proceeds benefit the school. It’s open 7 days a week from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and offers a large selection of pumpkins for the cost of 0.80 cents per pound.
Need hay, cornstalks and gourds to add to your household décor? They offer that as well as an area for you to have your family photo opp!
