Carmichael's Pumpkin Patch

Psst – hey, you! Looking for Halloween-themed things to do in Tulsa? Check out this interactive listing at Do What at ThisLandPress.com.

Tulsa’s pumpkin patches are open! Oh, squee!

Prowling for pumpkin patches is one of my very favorite things to do, and it’s a big reason why fall is my favorite time of year.

Plus, pumpkin patches aren’t just pumpkin patches anymore. They’re entertainment powerhouses, chock full of activities for kids and adults alike, from pumpkin bowling to corn mazes to pony rides to carnivals. Long story short, things big, round and orange aren’t all you’ll see when you head out with the kids on your hunt for the best jack-o-lantern this year.

Several of these patches offer special deals for large groups looking for a tour. Be sure to call ahead so the folks in charge at the patches can accommodate you. A word of advice from someone who knows from experience: Always contact the patch you intend to visit before you go. As are all things in the ag world, hours are subject to change.

I’m sure I’m not the only who who’d love to learn more about the pumpkin patches hosted by Tulsa-area churches. If you belong to a church selling pumpkins this fall, leave pertinent info in the comments.

If you don’t see your favorite local pumpkin patch on this list, let me know.

Happy pumpkin hunting, everyone!

    Hi Tasha,
    Thanks for the patch locales. My kids love them too. Can you share your recipe for the muffins? They sound scrumptious.

    Love your blog.

    We discovered Pleasant Valley Farms last year – and I do mean discovered, because it's pleasantly far out in the boonies for non-native midtowners like us.

    Not only do they have a big field of jack-o-lanterns, they also have an enormous variety of heirloom pumpkins and winter squash. Great stuff if you're into heirloom gardening!

    My favorite was a big white pumpkin that made such fantastic pie, I am now growing it in my own garden.

    I have another pumpkin patch to add!
    St. Stephens UMC in Broken Arrow has a patch. On Saturdays they will have a petting zoo and yummy pumpkin treats for sale as well as games and (I think) face painting.

    They also have story time for preschools and other small groups at 10 am. on weekdays. Call 455-4202 for details.

    St. Stephen's UMC is located just east of the corner of 101st and 161st (Elm) in Broken Arrow.

    Do you know which pumpkin patches actually have the pumpkins on the ground, in an actual patch, to choose from? I’ve never been to any in this state yet, but I was thinking of visiting Carmichael’s this year, but from their photos and facebook page comments it LOOKS like their pumpkins for sale are in boxes (they said their pumpkins are always in boxes in response to one person saying they thought they weren’t open yet because their pumpkins were all still in boxes), and the ones on the ground seem to be only arranged there for taking pictures on?? Is that the case? I want my kids to be able to run around on the ground and pick their own pumpkins to take home, not have me dig pumpkins out of a box like I could do at the grocery store and hold them up and show them. Anyway, just looking for the kind where you can actually pick pumpkins off the ground, not choose them from a box. Thanks for any help! I can’t afford to check out more than one patch because my kids will insist on wanting a pumpkin each time! Thanks again. Other activities aren’t that important, the main event here is wandering through the patch choosing pumpkins, so it doesn’t have to be a fancy one with hayrides and mazes and petting zoos. Thanks for any more tips you are able to offer!

    Hey Tasha,

    Do you know if any farms around make fresh apple cider donuts? We have been trying to find them since we moved here from Chicago a year and a half ago and haven’t seen them anywhere. Let me know if you come across any.

    Thanks for the great pumpkin farm suggestions!
