Pumpkin enthusiasts eager for seasonal fixes of Fall delight have local pumpkin patches to visit.
The Cotton Pickin’ Pumpkin Patch at Lazenby Farms, located at 11546 Lee Road 54, will be offering hayrides, pony rides, a corn maze, opportunities to pick cotton and corn crib entertainment on Oct. 21 and 28 between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.
The Farmer in the Dell Pumpkin Patch, located on Wire Road, offers a 10-acre attraction featuring a crop maze, hay rides, sunflowers, farm animals – and, naturally, pumpkins of various sizes ready to be cut from the vines. Admission is $2 for those 13 and older, while visitors 12 and younger are admitted free. A seasonal pass can also be obtained for $5.
Recent visitors at the Farmer in the Dell patch, like 6- and 4-year-old Auburn residents Maggie and AJ Hall, highlighted what caught their fancy at the fall attraction.
“The corn maze,” said Maggie. “I like it because it was made out of corn.”
Her brother, AJ, too enjoyed the maze, also adding “I liked picking a pumpkin.”
Tallassee residents Elise and Gabriel Sifuentes delighted in picking pumpkins with their other siblings, Adoniah and Eliana.
“It’s yellow,” remarked 3-year-old Elise, referring to what she liked most about the pumpkin she chose.
Gabriel, 8, said his pumpkin was “great” and shared what he enjoyed most about the patch: “Because it has lots of pumpkins.”
