Make a Reservation for the Pumpkin Patch

It’s almost October and you know what that means. It’s time to head up to Kula Country Farms. Please note: Reservations are now required for The Pumpkin Patch. This annual event is dear to many families so make reservations in advance, as they cannot ensure availability due to COVID-19 restrictions. Don’t forget to include everyone in your party, including your children. They will be limiting the amount of people in the patch and you will have only 1 hour for your visit. If you arrive without a reservation, they can help you make one at the entrances, if there is space available for that current time slot. To make sure you’re not left out, head to and pick a day and time to reserve your spot during the month of October.
