Mickelson Pumpkin Patch in Petaluma is Back for More Fall Fun

Mickelson Pumpkin Patch Petaluma

A relative newcomer to the North Bay pumpkin patch scene, Mickelson Pumpkin Patch debuted last year and is back for 2022! It's located between Novato and Petaluma just past the Sonoma County line, at the same location as the Mickelson Christmas tree lot. With a huge pumpkin field, rustic ambience, and plenty of attractions like a hay maze, games, tractor rides, inflatables, and farm animals, it’s an ideal destination to put on you fall family fun list!

Enter the pumpkin patch through the big tent at the front. There's a vast pumpkin field with pumpkins of all shapes and sizes. You can grab a wheelbarrow or, better yet, a cool retro radio flyer wagon to haul your pumpkins to the checkout stand. In the tent near the checkout area you'll find gourds and specialty pumpkins like minis and sugarpie as well as other goodies like locally made candles and fall decor. Pumpkin prices are on a par with other local pumpkin patches and range from $3 to $45.

Of course the pumpkins are just part of the whole experience. Admission is free, but you can buy a wristband for $25 and get all-day unlimited access to everything the pumpkin patch has to offer (except for the paintball gallery and apple cannon which take $7 tickets) including bounce houses and inflatable slides in the Jump Zone, the huge one-acre hay maze and pyramid and tractor rides. A $15 wristband gets you access to everything but the Jump Zone. You can also play games like cornhole, checkers, and jenga and ride pedal bikes around a hay-bale course.

Food and drink are available from their on-site vendor and include kettle corn, cotton candy, funnel cakes, corn dogs, and lemonade. Enjoy your snacks at one of the picnic tables on the grounds.

Mickelson Pumpkin Patch is definitely a worthy addition to our local offerings this fall! Learn more about them at or by calling (707) 490-8088.
