Fall is in the air. You know what that means? Leaves are changing color, pumpkin spice flavoring is available in literally everything, and pumpkin patches beginning to sprout up.

Also known as a pumpkin farm, pumpkin patches are a seasonal business due to the fact pumpkins only ripen in the fall. Not surprisingly, 90% of the national sales of pumpkins occur in the four-quarter. The combination of Halloween and Thanksgiving celebrations help drive these sales.

A native fruit to North America, pumpkins have been a recognizable part of American culture since the original pioneers. Grown primarily in ten states including Texas, California, and New York, the pumpkin production across America amounts to an estimated 1.1 billion pounds annually. Replacing the original turnips previously used by Irish immigrants, pumpkins patches make for a great family-friendly business and can be extremely profitable.

So if you’re thinking of starting a pumpkin patch in your area let’s pick a unique brand name organized by theme below. These can be extremely lucrative and fun business to operate if you can find the right location.

What is a pumpkin patch?

A pumpkin patch can be more than just ground to grow pumpkins on

A pumpkin patch can be more than just ground to grow pumpkins on.

Simply put, a pumpkin patch is any patch of ground where pumpkins are grown, whether for personal use of commercial purposes. But you don’t need to grow the pumpkins to have a pumpkin patch business.  In fact, I’ve seen pumpkin patch businesses setup in large parking lots.

Many of the popular pumpkin patches include entertainment, such as corn mazes, hayrides, concessions, and a little fairground at the time for picking. Essentially these are fun seasonal attractions that people of all ages can go to have a fun time and take photos for Instagram.

Always provide a few different areas in your pumpkin patch that lend themselves to photo opportunities. Ideally, you’ll want at least 4 – 5 places people can take an attractive photo. Not only will this provide families with a memorable photo to add to their digital scrap books, but it can provide free advertising for your business when they share it on social media. Savvy operators spend a lot of time thinking about how their property will look in a photo.

How much land will you need to start a pumpkin patch?

The amount of land you need depends on your pumpkin type

The amount of land you need depends on your pumpkin type.

Planning a pumpkin patch means working out how much land you are going to need to make a decent profit from your sale of pumpkins. Pumpkins are vines, but they tend to grow along the ground, rather than up a trellis like grapevines. This means, on average, a single pumpkin vine needs around 32 square feet for good growth. That’s a patch of ground around 8 feet by 5 feet per plant.

You should also consider how much land you might want to use for other things, including other crops to plant alongside the pumpkins, and room for hayrides and other festive activities for your customers.

How much money can you make?

Your profit is not always dependent on the sale of pumpkins

Your profit is not always dependent on the sale of pumpkins.

How much you can make from a pumpkin patch largely depends on the size, the yield, and the cost you charge for each pumpkin. And you can make money from other means than just the pumpkins. According to data, the average small pumpkin farm can make $30,000 a year or more in gross income. Not bad for a few weeks of work!

Selling pumpkins is only the beginning of your sales opportunities with a pumpkin patch. Here are a few more revenue generating ideas for this business:

  • Charge an entry fee
  • Sell concessions like kettle corn or candy apples.
  • Offer hay rides or pony rides.
  • Paid photo booth.
  • Create haunted house and charge extra for access.
  • Sell adult beverages in the evenings.
  • Sell seasonal baked goods that folks can take home.
