The little ones and I headed out to Dunnellon on Sunday to visit The Pickin' Patch a local pumpkin farm and it did NOT disappoint. First I just want to say that as per The Pickin' Patch's rules professional photography shoots are not allowed so this is simply my own personal opinion that I thought a lot of my clients (being parents) would appreciate. The Pickin' Patch has tons of activities for little ones to enjoy, a hay ride, slides, hedge maze, corn maze, sunflowers, all kinds of things
But for my little ones nothing held a candle to simply walking through the rows of vines looking for pumpkins. Not only do they have traditional orange pumpkins but they have tons of interesting looking ornamental pumpkins of all sizes. like this one that my son just had to hug.
Although The Pickin' Patch is very busy there is so much room to spread out that once you're inside you really don't feel like you're in a crowd which is especially good for young children who might not want to be shoulder to shoulder with strangers. We spent hours at The Pickin' Patch and my little ones (who are just under two) were not bored once. I would absolutely recommend it to other parents. Once you've been to The Pickin' Patch you'll never want to go to anything other than a real pumpkin farm again
