Living in Virginia for the past few years, Hunt Club Farm is quite the staple. The moment fall arrives, or even a little before, families flock there to buy pumpkins, let their kids enjoy the rides or attend the haunted festival. It’s definitely a destination for families looking to get into the fall spirit and a big part of the Virginia Beach community. Johnny and I love to get out and explore what’s around us, so this was definitely on our list of places to visit! We definitely had fun and even ran into a few Color & Chic readers!
The history of Hunt Club Farm dates back to the 1760s when the area was first developed as Woodhouse Plantation. The original house still stands today and is on Virginia Beach’s Historical Register. One reason so many people flock to this farm is because it’s one of the largest pumpkin patches in the area. They offer a variety of pumpkins, from classic carving pumpkins to white pumpkins, to fairytale pumpkins and more.
When To Visit
Hunt Club Farm is open from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. during the fall. However, I would recommend going as soon as they open. Parking will be easier, not to mention less crowds and more stock to choose from. Plus, since it is still quite warm in Virginia, you won’t have to worry about the hot afternoon sun. During the week, the petting farm, farm-tour hayrides and pony rides are available. On the weekends, extra activities include carnival rides, food and novelty vendors showing up as well as live music. Johnny and I went on a Saturday around 11 and it was perfect. Of course, there is an allure to going in the evening. Hunt Club Farm does offer a haunted hayride, which can be fun! I’m not a fan of anything remotely scary, so this isn’t for me.
What Else You Need to Know
Johnny and I didn’t have to pay admission fees because we simply visited the pumpkin patch. However, if you’re interested in the Harvest Fair, they charge for certain activities. Prices range from $1 to $13 but includes the hayride, petting farm and more.
The pricing for their pumpkins is fair in my opinion. It cost us about $21 for everything I’m holding in the tray at the beginning of this post. I’ve definitely paid more in the past at other farms. They take credit card but I believe there is a $10 minimum, so bring cash if you plan on spending less than that.
On weekends, there is a team helping to direct traffic in the parking lot. You’ll be parking either on gravel or grass, so keep that in mind. Also, the staff didn’t seem to mind us taking photos at all and we felt very welcome. If you go, please have fun!
