October can only mean one thing—pumpkins. If you’re looking for some of the best pumpkin patches in the city this year, we put together some for you to visit this fall. These are some of the best pumpkin patches near Pittsburgh! Happy picking!
2573 Brandt School Rd.
Wexford, PA 15090
I have so many fond memories of going to Soergels for pumpkins, cornhusks and their delicious pumpkin-shaped sugar cookies—it’s just one of many reasons I love Pittsburgh. This month, head out to Soergels to grab some of the most beautiful pumpkins found in the city. Every year Soergels hosts a fall festival with tractor rides to the pumpkin patch, pick your own apples. Don’t forget to wander through the cornstalk maze or straw tunnel too. Soergels is clearly one of the best pumpkin patches near Pittsburgh!
Portersville, PA 16051
Head out to Butler County to visit this fabulous family-friendly farm. Kids will enjoy hay tunnels they can crawl through, a small petting zoo with farm animals and for the older kids, a haunted hayride to Cheeseman Fright Farm. The Fright Farm is open weekends and select Thursdays and Fridays and kids 12 and under need to come with an adult. For years, many have considered Cheesemans to be one of the best pumpkin patches near Pittsburgh!
488 Anderson-Hozak Road
Clinton, PA 15026
Right near the airport lies Hozak Farms, formerly just strictly a Christmas tree farm. Now, pumpkins abound at this family owned farm. Their fall festival is every Saturday and Sunday in October and includes pumpkin picking, pumpkin painting, face painting, refreshments, fall decorations and hayrides to the pumpkin patch and around the fall scenery. If you’re looking for some of the best pumpkin patches near Pittsburgh, Hozak farms is definitely on the list!
528 Trax Rd.
Finleyville, PA 15332
Trax Farms has been in business for over six generations. Wednesday nights in October head out to Hops and Hayrides, where patrons can pick their own six-pack and take a hayride. With beer sampling and a corn maze, pumpkin picking has never been so much fun. When searching for the best pumpkin patches near Pittsburgh, don’t forget Trax Farms!
