It’s still hot outside, but you can start to feel that fall, crisp air in the morning, which means one thing: It’s pumpkin time.
Pensacola isn’t exactly a major pumpkin exporter, but there are plenty of places in the area where you can grab fresh pumpkins to carve for Halloween.
Some of these patches are open for one day while others are open through the season, offering corn mazes and other fun things to do while you’re picking.
Here are all the details: 
Holland Farms is probably the area’s largest pumpkin patch. Located in Milton, the farm is a locally owned and operated peanut, produce and row crop farm that sells directly to the public. Every visit comes with a free cup of boiled peanuts.
The farm’s pumpkin patch opened on Sept. 24 and will run until Nov. 2. For $15, a person can get a wristband for the pumpkin patch that includes one pumpkin and access to the hayride, train, sand box, swings, horse tire swings, pedal tractor cart racing, hill tube slide, corn box, sip lines, rat races and the corn maze.
General admission is $13 and includes just the playground, hayride and the maze. If all you’re looking for is a pumpkin, you can grab one for just $7 (though, if you’re driving all that way, the wristband is well worth the trip). Kids two and under are free.

Sweet Season Farms is another one of the area’s largest pumpkin patches and farms. The farm was founded in 2008 and partnered with the MAIZE Company out of Utah just a year later. The ideas was to create an 8-acre corn maze and agricultural experience for the surrounding community.
The official kickoff date for Sweet Season Farms is Oct. 1 and it runs until Nov. 6. There are two prices of admission: Whole cob and half cob. Whole cob is $15 and gets you access to everything except pumpkins and pony rides. Everything includes the corn maze, hayride, children’s playground, corn popper, Sunflower Speedway, hop-a-long rodeo, country carousel and a whole host of other things.
The half cob is $13.50 and is general admission plus the corn maze and hayride. Prices for pumpkins vary depending on size, and pony rides are $6.
The First City Art Center is hosting its 16th annual one-day pumpkin patch on Oct. 8 at the Blue Wahoos Stadium. This isn’t your normal pumpkin patch, as you might expect on account of it being at a baseball stadium rather than a farm. The FCAC pumpkin patch specializes in hand-blown glass and handcrafted ceramic pumpkins rather than the organic kind.
