Pumpkin Patches in Phoenix

It’s almost fall, and here’s a guide to all pumpkin patches in Arizona, updated for 2022!
Pumpkin Patches in Phoenix, AZ

Which Phoenix pumpkin patch is best for your family?

We are asked by our readers for recommendations of 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.

Also, consider the ages of your children. Do you have little ones under 5? Vertuccio Farms or Mother Nature’s Farm 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? Check Groupon or each venue’s website for possible coupons and discounts! (Remember, most places are free for ages 2 and under.)

The selection of pumpkins was amazing! All sizes, with prices ranging from $1 for mini pumpkins to $30 for the largest size. View more details on their website.

We took the family to MacDonald’s Ranch recently to check out their pumpkin patch.

Officially, MacDonald’s Ranch is a petting zoo, event venue, and a horse ranch. You can ride horses, ponies, and take hay rides around the ranch. They have multiple food venues, and on the days we visited there were amazing shave ice and popcorn vendors. They were also selling barbecue sandwiches, hot dogs, and beef jerky.

As far as the pumpkin patch goes, we really enjoyed our time. Our daughter picked out a pumpkin that only cost us $2 and the quality of the pumpkin is superb. It’s not quite the same as actually picking your pumpkin out of the field it was grown in, but I’m not exactly sure where you would go for that.

We spent the afternoon at the Willis Farm last week, and the kids had the best time playing in the huge corn box! They also loved petting the animals, taking turns on the zipline, and admiring the huge pumpkins in the field.

With u-pick produce, amazing home-baked goods, and a large orchard, Apple Annie’s in Willcox is truly a country experience that every family needs. What we loved about Apple Annie’s was the simplicity.

This annual pumpkin patch is located 1.5 hours south of Phoenix (30 min north of Tucson), has a little bit of everything, and we loved it! 2021 was our first visit and for sure not our last. There was enough to keep us busy for over 5 hours on a Sunday. (We would have stayed longer but the Arizona temps were reaching mid-90’s.)
