Pumpkin Patch in Jackson Area

We'll be visiting Jackson in the fall. We'd love to visit a pumpkin patch. Can anyone help me find a great pumpkin patch to visit? Thanks.

There is a pumpkin patch in Center Conway. Approx 20 minutes from Jackson. The pumpkins patch is off of East Conway Road at Tibbits Farm. They have all sizes and shapes. Hope this helps you.

{Chuckling to myself}

Last fall while visiting our home in Kearsarge, we were invited to the Swensen's house on Kearsarge Rd for their annual 'pumpkin send off' party. They were preparing to load their (potentially) prize winning pumpkin 'Agnes' onto a truck to take to the Freyburg Fair. The party is an annual neighborhood gathering complete with s singing dog, a rag tag band, and all kinds of pumpkin jokes and up country fun and games. When it came time to draw a name for someone to 'cut the cord' (the root of the pumpkin), who's name did they draw? MrsRedPony! And as she bent over to do the honor, a local photographer from the Conway newspaper snapped her picture, and the next morning, there was my bride, MrsRedPony, on the front page, in full color, The Kearsarge Pumpkin Queen! Not only did the picture hit the front page, but they used it in their annual calendar, so she's Miss September too!

I brought home a couple of copies of the newspaper and shared them with our friends at the golf club. We have gotten a lot of fun out of this one! Unfortunately, we'll be a week late for the event this fall, so MrsRedPony will not be there to defend (or repeat) her title.

But for those of you who will be visiting, look for the small local neighborhood gatherings. You'll meet some genuine folks who love life and enjoy the simple things.

BTW, Agnes weighed in at over 600 pounds!
