Louisiana Pumpkin Patches & Farms

Halloween is my favorite holiday. Every year I look for fun things to do with my family. One of our favorite things to do is visit a pumpkin farm & go on a hayride. Almost every year we've visited Montz Pumpkin Farm, but we've also visited The Hickory Maize & Pumpkin Farm, & St Martin's Episcopal Church. Unfortunately, the Hickory Maize isn't open this year. In fact, we're visiting Montz Pumpkin Farm today & I'll post about it later.

I did a little research & discovered that there are others in the area, so thought I'd share my information. I'd strongly suggest calling ahead of time to make sure that they're open & what their hours are.

Even though they aren't open this year, & have only sporadically been open since Hurricane Katrina, I'm going to supply information about the Hickory Maize as well. This is my favorite! We used to every year & loved it! They have corn cannons, a corn maize (with the option of going through a haunted corn maize at night), a hayride, an area to select a pumpkin & the opportunity for kids to paint the pumpkin. I hope they'll return next year!
