A visit to the pumpkin patch is always at the top of our family-to-do list in the fall! If I am being honest, I start hunting for pumpkins at the grocery store at the beginning of September! Even though it is still hot out, I am always eager to get the ‘fall feeling’ going at my home.

My September grocery store pumpkins tend to wither away in the Southern heat and humidity (bless), so by the time October 1st rolls around, we are ready to head to a local pumpkin patch and replace them. Here is a roundup of the best pumpkin patches near Auburn, Alabama!
