Operating all year, this fourth generation farm is dedicated to providing its customers with a wide variety of fruits and vegetables. However, when the leaves begin to turn, Penton Farms is transformed into one of the best pumpkin patches around.
Whether you are adults looking for a low-key pumpkin patch or a family looking for a pumpkin patch that has something to entertain children of all ages, you are sure to have a wonderful time at Penton Farms. Toddlers will stay entertained and happy with activities such as the corn pit, playground, water tables and tire tower. A corn maze, farm animals, tractor ride and more are also offered for children and adults.
Perhaps the most enjoyable aspect of the Penton Farms pumpkin patch is how affordable everything is on the farm. Admission covers all activities on the farm, including the tractor ride to the pumpkin patch and one pumpkin per guest. The concession stand offers favorites such as hot dogs, nachos, chips, caramel apples, and more. Even the food at the concession stand is affordable and delicious.
My favorite part of the Penton Farms pumpkin patch was the quality of pumpkins. Pinterest fans will be delighted at the variety of style and colors to choose from in the patch. White, green, and orange pumpkins are all left in the patch for guests to pick. From past experiences, most pumpkin patches pick the more unusual pumpkins to display or sell for an additional price in their store, but Penton Farms leaves a variety of pumpkins for their guests to collect. There are a few pumpkins that are sold in their store, but these pumpkins are all extremely affordable and just as impressive as the selection in the patch.
Whether you are looking for a pumpkin patch that is affordable and fun for kids of all ages, or you simply want to browse an impressive selection of pumpkins that are available for very reasonable prices, Penton Farms is certainly the place for you!
