If so I need your help! I have to write a paper for cultural anthropology on pumpkin patches and I need to do some interviews. Would any of you be willing to answer a few questions for me?

Your Age:

How often do you visit the pumpkin patch (ie every year, every couple of years)?

Why do you choose to visit the pumpkin patch?

Besides picking pumpkins, what other activies, if any, do you partake in at the pumpkin patch (like our local patches have corn mazes, hay rides, & petting zoos along with the pumpkin patch)?



Thanks in advance for your help!

We've gone a few times in the past few years but are making it a yearly event now that the kids are older.

Why do you choose to visit the pumpkin patch?
It's a good outdoor family activity. Our kids get to experience natural forms of entertainment rather than just commercial.

Besides picking pumpkins, what other activies, if any, do you partake in at the pumpkin patch (like our local patches have corn mazes, hay rides, & petting zoos along with the pumpkin patch)?

We got to haunted houses, the hayrides, cornmazes, petting zoo, the yummy goodies, and any other attraction they have.

I don't know if my answers will be much help, but here you go.

Your Age: 28

How often do you visit the pumpkin patch (ie every year, every couple of years)? This is only the second time in my life

Why do you choose to visit the pumpkin patch? Now I'm doing it because I want to create traditions with my daughter

Besides picking pumpkins, what other activies, if any, do you partake in at the pumpkin patch (like our local patches have corn mazes, hay rides, & petting zoos along with the pumpkin patch)? We will partake in as much as our time allows for, including apple picking, hay ride, and the petting zoo. I'm a little nervous about mazes, so we'll probably skip the corn maze.

Why do you choose to visit the pumpkin patch? We want to create family traditions, and the kids love it!

Besides picking pumpkins, what other activies, if any, do you partake in at the pumpkin patch (like our local patches have corn mazes, hay rides, & petting zoos along with the pumpkin patch)? Definitely the hay ride! The place we go has a play area that the kids thoroughly enjoy! They love the slides and running and jumping on the bales of hay. We've done the corn maze, petting zoo, pony ride, bounce house, trike course, and eating all the fall goodies that they sell! Apple cider donuts and apple cider = yummmm!!

Why do you choose to visit the pumpkin patch? To create a fun tradition to enjoy with my children for years to come.

Why do you choose to visit the pumpkin patch? The selection and the price and it is fun!

We went on a hay ride. They have a corn maze but I hate that (bugs ew) so we didn't.

Why do you choose to visit the pumpkin patch? I guess to pick pumpkins if you didn't have anywhere else to go

Besides picking pumpkins, what other activies, if any, do you partake in at the pumpkin patch (like our local patches have corn mazes, hay rides, & petting zoos along with the pumpkin patch)? Corn maze would be fun, we already have a mini petting zoo at home with all the critters and I find most are mistreated bad attitude animals that love to bite, lol. Hay ride, again we have that at home when we bale. lol

Why do you choose to visit the pumpkin patch? Because it's tradition. When we were kids we went every single year and then all sat down and carved our pumpkins together. I feel like it's important to keep family and holiday traditions alive, especially living across the ocean from my family and with my first baby on the way.

Besides picking pumpkins, what other activies, if any, do you partake in at the pumpkin patch (like our local patches have corn mazes, hay rides, & petting zoos along with the pumpkin patch)? corn maze, hay ride... and pumpkins. When I was younger, the patches around my house had zip-lines too and we LOVED to do those.

I have already been this year and plan to go back several times.

Age 27

I go every year.

I go to support local farmers and churches. My kids enjoy it too. We do corn mazes, hayrides and they have fun games for the kids. They also have face painting and a bake sale.
