Pumpkins stacked for fall.

It's fall, which means it is officially time to pour yourself a glass of apple cider and get your pumpkin carving tools out. 

But in order to do so, you are going to need some pumpkins first. Don't worry, we have you covered. 

For those searching for the perfect gourd, you might just find one, or multiple pumpkins, at two pumpkin patches near Hays. 

Cottage Lane Pumpkin Patch opens to the public soon while Pa's Pumpkin Patch is already accepting visitors. 

Cottage Lane Pumpkin Patch

Cottage Lane Pumpkin Patch, 1001 W. 15th St., in Ellis will open for pumpkin picking season on Oct. 2. The farm will be open through the end of October. 

While you are visiting the farm and picking pumpkins, make sure to wind your way through the bale and corn mazes, see the farm animals and visit the hog barn to see the fall decor and locally made products for sale.
