Whether you’ve got kids or are just a kid at heart, pumpkin patches are a must-do Fall event, at least once in your life. Get the scoop on our favorite patches around Middle Tennessee:
Cheekwood Estate and Gardens Pumpkin Patch | Nashville

The famous estate is always a treat to visit due to their impeccable gardens and beautiful architecture, but fall is one of the most breathtaking seasons due to the farm’s many oak, maple, and dogwood trees sporting their spectacular fall colors. Their 5,000+ autumn-hued chrysanthemums are also in bloom, so save time for a leisurely stroll through the gardens.
Highlights of Cheekwood’s pumpkin patch include scarecrows, an 11-foot tall pumpkin house, and pumpkins for painting, carving, and purchase.
