Pick A Pumpkin Patch In Middle Tennessee
Searching for the Great Pumpkin in Nashville? There are several great pumpkin patches in Middle Tennessee. Our favorite family fall tradition pumpkin patch is Gentry’s Farm located just outside beautiful historic downtown Franklin, Tennessee. We’ve been visiting this pumpkin patch since my 9-year-old daughter was just a wee toddler.Located just off Highway 96 in beautiful Williamson County, Gentry’s Farm is a working farm boasting 25 acres devoted solely to pumpkins. Gentry’s Farm has been owned by the same family for 150 years. Not only can kids pick a pumpkin, but they can run through a fun barn maze, swing on a tire swing, go on hay rides, explore a 4-acre corn maze, and visit with all the farm critters, from chickens to goats. Admission is $6 for kids and big kids of all ages (6 and up); the farm is open weekends and Mondays in October.
Located north of Nashville near my childhood stomping grounds in Robertson County is Honeysuckle Hill Farm. Honeysuckle Hill features a large corn maze, as well as a smaller kid friendly maze and other fun activities for little ones such as a pumpkin train, petting zoo, tractor tire playground, and hillbilly pig races. This year’s amazing corn maze design pays tribute to the men and women serving our country as part of the 101st Airborne in nearby Ft. Campbell, Kentucky. For teenagers and adults wanting to get their scary on, Honeysuckle Hill is also home to Scream Creek, a haunted horror experience that takes about 30 minutes to trek through with a flashlight. Admission is $9 for ages 3 and up.
Another Middle Tennessee area pumpkin patch located about 30 minutes from Nashville in Chapmansboro is Owen Farm. Open weekends in October, Owen Farm features fun family activities such as a corn maze, corn crib, pupmking patch, inflatables, hay rides, duck races, a toddler zone, and zip lines. Admission for ages 3 and up is $9 (zip lines additional cost.)
