It’s the time of year where pumpkins are everywhere you look– but finding the perfect one isn’t always an easy task, especially when everyone else is on the same hunt for carve-worthy festive gourds. The greater Lexington area and other nearby counties are home to plenty of great pumpkin patches, however, so you don’t need to fret when it comes to picking out a jack-’o-lantern this year.
Evan’s Orchard and Cider Mill
198 Stone Road
Located in the nearby city of Georgetown, Evan’s Orchard is worth the short trip if you’re not only looking for pumpkins but have an apple cider-flavored sweet tooth. Their pumpkin patch has free entry to boot, so taking an afternoon to pursue their selection won’t cost you unless you find your perfect match.
Bi-Water Farm and Greenhouse
877 Cincinnati Road
Also in Georgetown is Bi-Water Farm and Greenhouse, a delightful place to find not just tons of pumpkins, but tasty produce of many other varieties as well. Their website even features gardening tips for those wanting to grow a mini-farm of their own.
1396 Pinckard Pike
In Versailles, another town that’s just a short drive away from Lexington, you’ll find Eckert’s. The orchard has a pumpkin patch, of course, but it also features a schedule of fun seasonal events that take place throughout autumn.
Happy Jack Pumpkin Farm
966 Hickman Hill Road
Happy Jack Pumpkin Farm has ‘pumpkin’ in its name, so it’s no surprise that this local farm is a beloved place to find them in Kentucky’s capital. It boasts an impressive 20 acres worth of pumpkins waiting for their forever (sort of) home.
Two Sisters Pumpkin Patch
5000 Van Thompson Road
Mt. Sterling, KY
Mt. Sterling is a beautiful eastern Kentucky town home to the famous Court Days Festival, a huge arts, crafts, and trading fair that has taken place every October since the 1700s. It’s definitely worth checking out, and while you’re at it, you can stop by Two Sisters’ Pumpkin Patch, which has plenty of potential jack-’o-lanterns– and pickles, too.
