We’ve had some great pumpkin patch suggestions, but Apple Hill and Bishop Farm require a day trip. If you’re a busy (or lazy) mom like me who would still needs to check the box for “pumpkin patch visit” in October without having to make an entire day of it, Ferrari Farms is a great option, smack dab in between Reno and Sparks.
Ferrari Farms pumpkin patch offers fun for the entire family! Conveniently located along the Truckee River, Ferrari Farms allows you to come get lost in a corn maze, pick through the pumpkin patch, ride our mechanical bull, take a hayride, jump around in the bounce house and see farm animals.

Ferrari Farms is a friendly local farm to support, and they make it so easy to get a bit of the country experience without having to leave the city limits! They have a great set-up of pumpkins and tractors for photo-ops. Be careful with the little ones in that corn maze — the ground is really uneven, and I’ve had multiple incidents where kids did a face-plant and then I’m trying to find my way out carrying a wailing child!

Here are some pictures of our visit there last year. (No, I haven’t checked off the pumpkin patch box yet, but know I will do a quick hit to Ferrari Farms within the next week!)
