It’s fall time, and you know what that means! Halloween is creeping up, so you should visit the local pumpkin patch! The Suyematsu Farm is the most well-known pumpkin patch here on Bainbridge Island. It’s located on the north end of the island at 9227 NE Day Road. It is open Monday through Friday from 1:00 P.M. to 6:00 P.M., and on Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M.!

Visiting the pumpkin patch is a great way to spend quality time with your family and friends. Not only can you find the perfect pumpkin to carve, but there are also many activities offered at the Suyematsu Farm. Every weekend there are tractor rides for the kids and local-made pumpkin pies and fresh cider made by Bainbridge Island Farms. Also, it is important to know that on Sunday, October 14th, the Grub Hut burger food truck will be serving food at the pumpkin patch!

What do our very own Bainbridge High students think about the local pumpkin patch? According to Jackson Taylor, “Going to the pumpkin patch is a great way to support a local business on the island. At the pumpkin patch, you will always see someone you know and it is a great way to connect with the community.”

Not only are current Bainbridge High students enjoying the pumpkin patch, but so are graduates of Bainbridge High. Casey deHaas and Vanessa Lipschutz, former Bainbridge High School students, went to the pumpkin patch this Saturday.

Lipschutz said, “I had so much fun going to the pumpkin patch! I live in Seattle, so it was nice to come back to the island and hang out with my family and friends. I am excited to carve the pumpkin I just bought!” deHaas stated, “Going to the pumpkin patch was the highlight of my Saturday. The weather was very nice in the morning and I was happy with my pumpkin choice. I recommend going to the pumpkin patch on the weekend because it opens up earlier.”

Head over to the Suyematsu Farm before Halloween starts! Each day, good pumpkins will be chosen by the community, so the sooner the better. The best part about going to the pumpkin patch is being able to spend time outside with the ones you love and having fun with them.
