Puget Sound Pumpkin Patches, Corn Mazes & U-Pick Apple Farms
Fall is in the air (yay!) and if you’re hoping to take your family on a fun outing this fall, here’s an extensive list of Puget Sound Pumpkin Patches, Corn Mazes & U-Pick Apple Farms for your reference. Remember that apples on actual farms are much more seasonal than apples in stores. I also recommend that you call ahead as hours and availability can change.
