Carrigan Farms

1261 Oak Ridge Farm Hwy
(Intersection of 150 & 152)
Mooresville, NC 28115

Looking for the authentic pumpkin patch experience? Look no farther than Carrigan Farms. Conducted every October since 1975, our tractor-drawn pumpkin patch hayrides might be old fashioned, but we assure you they are the real deal.

At Carrigan Farms we GROW tens of thousands of pumpkins every year. Each and every hayride includes a trip to the pumpkin patch, where kids of all ages (adults too!) each pick their very own pumpkin. Pumpkins range in size from 2-20 pounds +/-, so everyone can find the size that’s right for them. Cost of our hayride on weekends is $10.00 per person for everyone ages 2 and above. Young babies 23 months and under are free; however, they do not get a pumpkin.

Days and times for pumpkin patch hayrides are:
Saturdays in October: 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM
Sundays in October: 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM

Saturday and Sunday hayrides depart approximately every 15 minutes and last 45 minutes to one hour. Our busiest time on Saturdays is from 11:30 AM to 2:30 PM and on Sundays from noon to 2:30 PM. So for the shortest “wait time” come either before or after the peak.

Our farm market is open from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM every day of the week during the month of October. Come enjoy a fun time shopping for fresh apples and apple cider, corn stalks, straw bales, mini pumpkins and giant pumpkins, colorful and fun shaped gourds, Indian corn, turnips and greens, colorful mums, local honey, and pumpkins by-the-pound.
