CHURCH PUMPKIN PATCHES IN HOUSTON
Houston-area churches are a great source of pumpkins and pumpkin patch photo opps. Pumpkin sales generally benefit an important mission or group in the church. Many churches source their pumpkins from Navajo Indians in New Mexico, which provide critical employment and stability for their families.
Please note that some churches that have hosted pumpkin patches in previous years may not do so this year due to the pandemic. Additionally, some churches have yet to decide if they’ll be doing a patch this year, so we’ll hopefully be adding to this list as the season goes on.
