Papa Noel Pumpkin Patch
Daily through October 31 | 9 a.m. through 9 p.m. | Various Locations (listed below)
Papa Noel Christmas Trees is excited to announce their 2nd year of selling pumpkins and other fall related goods. Papa’s Pumpkin Patch will be at three locations. Their pumpkins are grown on the same farm as their award winning Christmas trees in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. The high elevation, combined with cool nights and warm days make their pumpkins big, beautiful and most importantly, they last longer after the harvest than most other pumpkins grown in the US. They sell many different varieties of Heirloom pumpkins as well as the classic Jack-O-Lantern’s and also delicious Pie Pumpkins. They’ll have everything you need to decorate for the fall season and of course, Halloween! Papa’s Pumpkin Patch sells hay bales, Chrysanthemums, corn stalks, and a wide, fun selection of various scare crows, fall decor, and a few spooky spiders. All stores will open October 1 from 9 a.m. until 9 p.m. everyday. Be sure to bring your camera for the cute photo ops as well!
