3. Hall’s Pumpkin Patch

Families from all over Tarrant County and beyond come to enjoy an old fashion fall celebration. Every October, our family celebrates the harvest by inviting folks to visit our farm.

Located in historic Grapevine – our farm is nestled between Dallas and Ft. Worth, just west of DFW airport.
The Hall Farm dates back as far as 1929 when Jess Hall purchased his first piece of property. As the story goes, Jess started his farm with just a double-shovel plow and one mule. In 1930, he built his home that today still stands on the road that bears his name -Hall-Johnson.
