The 15 Best Pumpkin Patches in Tennessee to Visit

Every season of the year has its highlights, but Fall in the Blue Ridge Mountains has to be my favorite.
Living in the Blue Ridge Mountains at this time of year, as we do, is wonderful for a number of reasons.
In our experience, nothing beats cruising the Blue Ridge Parkway in Fall for a leaf-peeping, spending a day going apple picking, and enjoying all the family-friendly Fall fairs and festivals.
One of our favorite Autumn experiences is taking a trip to the local pumpkin patches in Tennessee, North Carolina, or Virginia. Sure, you can just grab a pumpkin from the supermarket, but where’s the fun in that?!
For us, Autumn is all about warm sweaters, hot apple cider, corn mazes, scarecrows, hayrides, and those glorious Fall colors.
Picking out a perfect Tennessee pumpkin to carve for Halloween and selecting the most delicious one for that pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving are a few of our other favorite fun things to do in Fall
Read on for our guide to the best pumpkin patches in Tennessee to visit, including a handy map and options near Chattanooga, Knoxville, Murfreesboro, and Nashville.
