I have been getting another question lately
“Which pumpkin patch do you like best in the Phoenix Area?”
Oh that is hard!
I think I like each patch for a different reason:
1.Mortimer Farms-If you are from the north/northeast, this pumpkin patch experience will make you feel the most “at home”. The temperatures are cooler up in Dewey-Humboltz, and it is about an hour and a half ride from Surprise and really gets you out of the city. They have added a ton of different features. They also have an amazing farm store, fun features and the scenery can’t be beat.
2. If you are looking for a true farm feel , but out of the city closer to home, Rocker 7 Farm Patch in Buckeye will also give you that feel. With great tours for kids, this farm has fun things for parents and kids to do. Less busy than other Farms, you will get a nice farm feeling with lots of entertainment for younger kids up to tweens.
3. If you are looking for the farm feel that’s a little out of the city on the East Side, MacDonald’s Ranch in Scottsdale has tons of different things to do as well. A farm feel, but out of the beaten path, will get you in the spirit of fall. Petting zoos, lots of things for preschoolers to do, and a hayride to a pumpkin patch will be great for younger kids.
4. If you are looking for some thrills for a family full of kids, Vertuccio Farms has a lot to do. With a ride around the orchard, a huge cornmaze, ziplines for kids, a huge bounce pillow and so much more, this huge farm will have your family busy for the day. This farm borders on city/country life, and is an easy ride in Mesa.
5. Tolmachoff Farms- Located in the heart of the city, this farm gives respite for the city dwellers who need the farm experience nearby. However, it is a great farm with lots to do, and has great farm programs geared to elementary, preschoolers and field trips. There is also a haunted corn maze too! During the day, Tolmachoff is perfect for your younger kids from prek to late elementary. But at night its great for teens with their haunted maze. Their farm stand can’t be beat either, and the staff is also amazing as well.
Hope this helps you decide which farm is best for you!
