Sometimes you need just the right type of patch for your family. Is that an intimate u-pick in North Georgia on a weekend? Or an adventure-packed occasion with pumpkins, rides, games and more located near the city? Georgia has them all!

Here are some of the best pumpkin patches in Georgia that you're going to want to check out this fall.
