Pumpkin Patches and Family Farms Near Duluth


Pumpkin patches and family farm visits are fall bucket list staples for most families. I have so many memories of myself as a child visiting our local farm and chatting with “Farmer Nelson.” At the top of each hour, he would launch a pumpkin through the air on an apparatus he invented himself. All of the farm guests would gather in the pasture to see how far into the pond the pumpkin would fly. We have gathered information about pumpkin patches and family farms near Duluth so you can make your own memories with your children!

Tip: Be sure to check the pumpkin patches and farms’ websites and/or social pages before heading there in case of weather-related hour changes!
