Best Pumpkin Patch in all of Western North Carolina: The Nix Pumpkin Patch

I have many fond memories of Halloween as a kid. Picking the perfect costume always required plenty of advanced planning. And finding the perfect pumpkin was a tall order.  When I was in elementary school, it was always the biggest pumpkin who won out.  Then it was all about the perfect pumpkin with the best shape.

We’ve been driving past the Nix Pumpkin Patch on Chimney Rock Road for months anticipating the finale: The Perfect Pumpkin.  We stopped in today and were excited about what we found… the Best Pumpkin Patch in all of Western North Carolina.  I’m not joking…

Whether you want a ginormous monstrosity pumpkin, a white pumpkin, warted pumpkin, a perfect globe, or some apple gourds, this is your place.  I’m sure I’ve got all the names wrong.  But you can pick from pre-cut pumpkins, sorted by size, shape and color.  Or wander around the farm and cut your own, how cool is that, just like a Christmas Tree!

Our final jack-o-lanterns

Hope you like them!  It’s the first Halloween pumpkin I’ve carved in over twenty years!
