Pumpkin Patch at Mother Nature’s Farm

Here’s a great option if you are looking for an East Valley pumpkin patch. (Read our review here.) The farm entrance fee is $10.00/person, and includes a small pumpkin, bag of stickers, decorating your pumpkin, the air bounce, a hayride, straw bounce, feeding the animals and a maze. This farm is smaller than most, but our kids loved the space to run around and the darling little pumpkins under the trees. More information can be found on their website!

This farm is another top favorite with our kiddos. Click here to read our summary. They have a corn maze, air playground, train ride, giant tube slide, a bunch of farm animals and bounce houses. All ages are $12/person, 2 and under are free. They also have a season pass for $30 per person, which might be a good value if you plan to revisit. Visit Vertuccio Farms web site for details.

Which Pumpkin Patch is Best?
We have been asked by our readers for recommendations on the best pumpkin patch in the Phoenix area. First, which one is closest to you? We recommend checking out that location, for the sake of convenience. (We always go to MacDonald’s Ranch in Scottsdale for this reason!) Make it a weekend family event, or meet up with friends for a playdate.
But, also consider the ages of your children. Do you have little ones under 5? Vertuccio Farms or Mother Nature’s Farms might suit your family better. Or, if you live in the West Valley, try Tolmachoff Farms. Schnepf Farms is also fun and has a lot to keep older children and teens occupied, definitely worth the drive.
Are you trying to save money? MacDonald’s Ranch almost always has a Groupon for 2-4 people, with up to a 40% discount on admission. Be sure to check each venue’s website for possible coupons or discounts as well! (And remember, most places are free for ages 2 and under.)
