The Patch in Mountville Transitioning from Pumpkins to Christmas Trees

October 26, 2022

The 2022 pumpkin season is a wrap for The Patch in Mountville.

The Patch is a local farm in Laurens County specializing in all things Fall. Their 2022 season included fall plants like pumpkins, mums, straw bales, marigolds, and corn stalks. They sold out of honey, t-shirts, mums, and corn stalks this year.

Hundreds of families visited The Patch this year making it a new fall family tradition. The Patch hosted eight school field trips this year and there are plans to add more activities and events next year. Product from The Patch was also delivered to local day care facilities and fall festivals so they could build their own pumpkin patch.

New this year was a large area of sunflowers, customers loved picking the sunflowers and taking pictures in the sunflower field. Photo sessions in the sunflower field were provided by photographer Emily Mauney. The Patch also has a play area for children that was a big hit with the parents. Kids played while their parents shopped. The Patch also expanded the selection of local products available including their own honey, Waldron Family Honey products, Rolling Hill Ranch Goat Milk products, and craft items local vendors. The Front Porch Churn also made an appearance on the farm and sold out of their homemade ice-cream.

“We love offering the prepicked selection so our pumpkins can be accessible to those who don’t feel like they can go out and pick pumpkins,” said Mary-Grace Iusti, Director of Pumpkin Operations. “We are overwhelmed by the support from the community this season. We hope to continue to add new things and provide the best experience for our customers.”

From pumpkins to Christmas trees…

This year The Patch will offer Fraser Fir Christmas trees. The Patch will be open the week of Thanksgiving with fresh cut trees. The trees will be harvested from Mile High Tree Farm in Ashe County, North Carolina.  The trees will range in size from 6-9 feet.

The supply of trees will be limited so don’t wait too long.

“We are so excited to offer Fraser Fir Christmas trees this year, “said Tricia Green, Director of Christmas Operations at The Patch. “It has been a dream of mine to have a Christmas market, so we are making that happen as well.”
