There’s so much fall fun to be had in Atlanta, and going pumpkin picking is just one of the many things to do! Every year we go to the same pumpkin patch to find our perfect pumpkins. Read on to find out where that pumpkin patch is!
A cute costume, black cat decorations, apple cider, and a pumpkin for carving are my must-haves for Halloween fun. And each year we go to the pumpkin patch at the Smyrna First United Methodist Church to pick our perfect pumpkins.
Smyrna First United Methodist Pumpkin Patch
The Smyrna First United Methodist Church unloads hundreds of pumpkins and gourds in all shapes and sizes at the end of September. Pumpkins are available until the end of October, or until the pumpkins run out, whichever comes first. They have a great selection of pumpkins, so it’s easy to find the right pumpkin (or hard because they all look so good!).
Proceeds from the pumpkin patch benefit different church groups each year. This year, the sales benefit local youth ministries and foreign missions.
New to the pumpkin patch this year are photo opportunities so you can show off your picture-perfect pumpkin! Besides doing your own photo shoot with the pumpkins, you can also take pictures at the hay bales, the scarecrow cutouts, and the three angel wings. The angel wings are a must for Insta-worthy pictures.
The pumpkin patch is “open” (meaning there’s someone there to work the register) weekdays from 4:30 — 8 p.m. and weekends from 9 a.m. — 8 p.m., but they have a box there at all times so all you have to do is measure up your pumpkin to decide which price best fits it and put your cash in the box. Even if you come by late at night, you can still pick your pumpkin!
You can find the Smyrna First United Methodist Pumpkin Patch at 1315 Concord Rd SE, Smyrna, Georgia 30080.
