I can smell autumn dancing in the breeze. The sweet chill of pumpkin, and crisp sunburnt leaves.  – Ann Drake

It’s that time of year again, when #PumpkinSpiceLatte is a viral hashtag, we wear boots even though the temperature outside is still in the 80’s, and of course, we scour the internet for the best Pumpkin Patches. At The Pana Real Estate Team, we wanted to save you some time and compiled a list of the best Pumpkin Patches in Broward County. Before you head to the pumpkin patch, make sure you show up with your game plan. What type of pumpkin are you looking for? Will you be carving the pumpkin, baking with the pumpkin, or simply keeping it whole?

Did you know you should be looking for specific things for each of those types of pumpkins? For instance, if you’re interested in carving your pumpkin, make sure the pumpkin sits well on a flat surface. The last thing you want is for your freshly carved pumpkin to roll over once you place it down for decoration. Click here for a fun printable to help you pick the best pumpkin on your next pumpkin patch trip!
