Mapping Greater New Orleans Area Pumpkin Patches

View as Map

It's that time of the year! Time for decorative gourd displays, pumpkin carving parties, and secretly enjoying (or openly hating) pumpkin spice everything. We're really into fall activities — spooky or not — which is why we've created a map of pumpkin patches in and around the Greater New Orleans Area, as well as in the Baton Rouge, the Northshore and beyond. Consider it a virtual hayride through Louisiana pumpkin purveyors. Are we missing your favorite? Let us know in the comments or drop us a line. Happy fall!
