From Alabama To Wyoming: A Guide to Finding Farm Stands In All 50 States

We'll pull over to visit a roadside farm stand any time of year, so we've put together a list of resources to help you find roadside stands, pumpkin patches, and pick-your-own farms in all 50 states. Let us know if you have a particular favorite in your part of the world! From one-man operations to amusement park-like destinations, roadside farm stands can be such fun places to find your perfect Halloween pumpkin, assemble a lovely autumn centerpiece, get a glimpse of where your fruits and vegetables are grown, and perhaps even pick some yourself. Some also have pumpkin patches and corn mazes to amuse both young and old.
