ABQ Mom’s Guide to Pumpkin Patches


There’s no better feeling than walking through an open field of orange and picking out the most perfect pumpkin to take home and carve — or decorate your porch with. Check out the list below for all the patches to go pumpkin picking.

We’d like to thank Manzano Day School for sponsoring this Guide to Pumpkin Patches.

New World. New Way. Same Manzano Day School. Founded in 1938, Manzano Day School is an independent, nonprofit elementary school for children in pre-kindergarten through fifth grade. In addition to the core subjects of reading, math, science, and social studies, the six co-curricular subjects of art, library, music, physical education, Spanish, and technology are part of every student’s schedule. Manzano Day School is implementing a reopening strategy that allows the school to remain flexible while responding to the changing situation around COVID-19. They are providing the best educational experience possible while also mitigating risk of exposure or outbreaks of COVID-19 in the community.

Wagner’s Farmland Experience

6445 Corrales Rd | Corrales

Fall is still on at Wagner’s Farmland Experience! Due to COVID-19, they’ve made some changes to make sure that we are staying as safe as possible so that we can still enjoy fall fun. They’ve expanded the pumpkin patch to offer a larger space to allow for better social distancing. They’ve also added a brand-new U-pick vegetable farm. There’s also a farm animal exhibit and a walk through stalks….corn stalks, that is!
