Dog friendly pumpkin patches around Seattle

Are you looking for pumpkin patches you can bring your dog to? Me too!

It’s not always easy to see which places allow dogs, and sometimes I have to call or search google/yelp reviews if it’s not clear on the websites. Here’s a list of the dog friendly ones we have found around the Seattle area. I hope to keep adding more each year! (updated October 2023)

Maris Farms

Located in Buckley, WA
Sept 30-October 30 (Fri 1pm-10pm, Sat 10am-10pm, Sun 10am-7pm)
Corn Maze, Farm Animals, Duck & Pig Races, Mega Slide, Zipline, Jump Pillow, Ropes Course, Apple Blasters, Light Show, Cow Train, Farmer’s Market, Wagon Ride, Haunted Woods.
Best for families and those who want an all day event with LOTS of activities. Plus on a clear day, you can see Mt. Rainier!.

We love Maris Farms and got here a lot (check out their Sunflowers Days in August and Tulips/baby animals in April). They don’t have the most instagram aesthetic pumpkin patch (it’s pumpkins lined up on dirt), but they have cute signs and classic wheelbarrows. If go on the back near their exit, I found a pile of pumpkins on this wagon behind the red tree last year and it remains one of my favorite photos ever. They do change up their fields each year to rotate crops/plant, so explore and see what hidden gems you can find. There’s so many activities for kids – Isabelle loves the ropes gym and the bubbles and playground. Also I’m embarassed to say that I could not figure out their corn maze (fear not, if you have terrible sense of direction like me, a friendly lookout person can help you out.)

Serres Farm

Redmond, WA
October Weekends (9am-6pm)
Corn Maze, Train, and Duck Races
Best if looking for small, quiet no frills pumpkin patch (great if you have reactive dogs), no admission fee, scenic red barn

If you want a pumpkin patch and nothing else (because entrance fees can be realllly pricey for the other pumpkin farms, esp if you have a family), this is for you. When I went, their website said it closes at 6:30pm – we’ll that is wrong, they close at 6pm, so plan accordingly. This place is the most “instagram aesthetic” pumpkin patch – wild, green pumpkin fields, beautiful rustic barn, classic wheelbarrows. It’s also lesser known and quiet, so if you have a reactive dog (or don’t love having tons of people around), this is a great place. I also found this farm to have the cheapest pumpkins.

JB Family Growers

Woodinville, WA
Sep 23-Nov 1 (Thur 2pm-8pm, Fri-Sun 9am-8pm)
Sunflower Walk, Corn Maze, Lawn Games
Best for taking golden hour photos, if you’re missing sunflowers in August and still want to see them, and date night with wineries nearby. Plus on a clear day, you can see Mt. Rainier!

Photographers, you want to come here – they open late so you can catch golden hour. It’s busy so you’ll see plenty of people (and dogs), but it’s enormous so there’s space to take pics. The corn maze has different levels of difficulty. There’s some photo ops (think rustic and simple – hay bales and a few pumpkins, rather than big signs and chairs). I missed a really cute photo op at their entrance by their lavender fields – I didn’t see it until after dark sadly, so don’t miss that. Their pumpkin fields are wild – really “pick your own” where you have to find pumpkins hidden under enormous leaves and cut it it. They have wagons to carry your pumpkins around. Also the sunflowers are gorgeous. Sadly heavy rainstorms knocked a bunch of sunflowers down, but there were many beautiful red and yellow sunflowers to enjoy. There’s also lawn games and board games (tic tac toe, etc) with mini pumpkins my girls loved. JB Family Growers also has a lavender field, so save that for your calendar!

Picha Farms

Puyallup, WA
Sep 30-Oct 31 (Weekdays 3-6pm, Weekends 10am-6pm)
Corn Maze, Hayride, Lots of fall decor
Best if looking for cute photo ops and no admission fee

A really fun one that isn’t huge and overwhelming and doesn’t require an admission fee (those entrance fees add up if you have a family!). The pumpkins are piled and lined up, so pumpkin picking is really easy and the photos are really easy. There are many adorable signs and photo ops. Picha farms is the only one that’s open all the weekdays too, which is great if that works for your schedule and you want to avoid busier crowds. They also have live music on weekends. This farm has a special place in my heart, since it’s the first one we visited when we moved to Seattle and that’s where our “ghost trend” video of Nike and Isabelle went viral and got 3.3million views!

Tips for pumpkin patch success

I try to go at the end of the day – the lighting is better and usually it’s less crowded. I also bring plenty of treats for Nike as well as water if it’s a sunny day.

Dress appropriately. Many of these farms get REALLY muddy especially after a rain.

Finally, please keep dogs on leash and pick up after your dog. There are many pumpkin pumpkin patches/farms that don’t welcome pets, so we want to support and respect those that do. These are small, local, family run businesses and many are multi generation farmers! Happy pumpkin patch exploring!
