Looking to pick out the perfect pumpkin? You’re in the right place. Whether you’re looking for a quaint patch where you can pick up your squash and go or a massive farm featuring family games, tractor rides and petting zoos, there are plenty of patches in L.A. to suit your fancy. Every October, tiny parking lot patches sprout up all over the city and local farms bring out their best orange squash—from tiny little fellas to massive twenty-pounders. The next time you’re looking to carve with family and friends or perhaps whip up some tasty pumpkin desserts (hello, pumpkin pie), check out our guide to the best pumpkin patches in Los Angeles.
