One of the favorite fall/Halloween activities of many people in the Pacific Northwest is to visit the pumpkin patches of local area farms. Snohomish County is the place to find some of Western Washington’s best pumpkin patches and fall festivities.
Here are the Most Loved Snohomish County Pumpkin Patches Open in 2021
Some say this is the longest-standing pumpkin patch in the Snohomish Valley. At Craven, you can find a selection of already picked, and u-pick pumpkins. In addition to pumpkins, there is a 15-acre corn maze, animal barn, mini-golf, food, and other fun activities.
The pumpkin patch itself is over 20 acres. Take a hayride out to the field and pick out the perfect one. There is no entry fee at Craven Farm and no time limit. Weekdays are much less crowded. Come at night to enjoy the Night Owl Flashlight Maze until 10 pm, tickets for the night maze are $17.50. Craven is located at 13817 Shorts School Road in Snohomish and open from 9:30 am to 6 pm daily from September 18- Halloween. Furry family members can join you in the patch for the Pooches in the Patch event on Halloween day.
Swan Trail Farms

This is a popular no frill pumpkin patch in Lake Stevens. Come and pick a pumpkin, see the farm animals, browse the store, or have something yummy at the concession stand. For an additional cost you can enjoy weekend activities that include a corn maze, paintball gallery, apple guns, hayrides, and a bucket train. Wristbands can be purchased for the Game Zone, Kidds Korral, tube slides, zip swing, and punch pumpkins. Each attraction requires a certain amount of pre-purchased tickets like going to the fair. Carleton is located at 630 Sunnyside Boulevard Southeast in Lake Stevens.
The Farm Market is named Miller’s Produce and is the best place for fresh seasonal fruit as well as other farm-fresh goods including cheese, meats, dairy products, salsa, and more.
If you have a little one that gets overwhelmed by the whole pumpkin patch and fair-style festivities you can grab a fresh-picked pumpkin out at the farm store. It is a great way to get the farm experience without overwhelming your child.
