Since 1940, the Ward family has operated Ward’s Pumpkin Patch in Ridgewood, New Jersey. We offer the best quality and selection of pumpkins, gourds, and squash in Northern New Jersey. We have pumpkins to make common Jack-O-Lanterns as well as giant pumpkins, tiny munchkins, and gourds in unusual shapes.
We offer mums, cornstalks, haystacks and Indian corn as well as a rotating selection of fall decorations. One of our most popular items is our painted pumpkins featuring cartoons, sports, and Halloween themes. On weekends leading up to Halloween we offer goat feedings, face painting, and other events. So bring your entire family for a fall outing at Ward’s Pumpkin Patch!
We will be offering special events in October! See the Calendar for full descriptions. Please check back often as we will be adding to our line up.
