Wemple’s Pumpkin Patch, a Local’s Review

October is here which means all the pumpkin patches are open! If you are up for a little bit of car time, I promise packing up and heading to Wemple’s Pumpkin Patch is totally worth it!

Our family has made it an annual tradition every year to visit. And just an hour outside of Reno, you won’t be disappointed!

Wemple’s Pumpkin Patch

Wemple’s Pumpkin Patch is a family-owned, family-run farm in Milford California. Since 1994 the Pumpkin Patch has been an annual tradition for families from all around.

They offer an old-fashioned farm experience for our customers that make memories for years to come. Enjoy hayrides, U-Pick pumpkins, squash and gourds, a country store, a cookhouse, a hay maze, and a corn maze. There are lots of animals to view and enjoy while you relax on a peaceful October afternoon.

With so many pumpkins to choose from on their display truck, to the hundreds of them scattered throughout the large fields, you are sure to find the perfect pumpkin.

They also have a ton of little red wagons for you to use while finding your perfect pumpkin so you do not have to carry them all around.
