VIDEO: Kula Country Farms Pumpkin Patch, Everything You Need to Know
With just weeks to go before Halloween, many on Maui are making the traditional trek up the mountain ahead of the holiday to pick out pumpkins from the Kula Country Farms Pumpkin Patch.
Pumpkins come in all different sizes and can be purchased for as little as 50 cents for minis, to $20 for the large size. Giant pumpkins are also offered for those looking to decorate their homes or parties.
The farm is busy throughout the week with tours are offered for school children on the week days.
Teena Monden of Kula Country Farms said business has been good with heavy foot traffic, but farming took a toll this year. “We pretty much lost half our crop,” said Monden, “but we still have lots of pumpkins.”
Hours: Open at 10 a.m. everyday, except for Mondays, when they are closed. During the weekdays, the pumpkin patch closes at 5 p.m.; and on Saturdays and Sundays, they close at 4 p.m.
Parking: Parking is offered for $3 in the pasture right next to the patch. It’s off the road and there’s direct access to the patch.
“Because parking has been crazy the past few years on the street, we decided this year to open up our pasture, which is at the bottom of our pumpkin patch,” said Monden. “You can drive in there, park your car in the pasture. It’s right next to the pumpkin patch. It’s safe. Your kids don’t have to go on the street.”
