Best Local Pumpkin Patches: 20+ Farms with Delightful Fall Fun

Top Fall Activity: Pumpkin Patches

‘Tis the Season for Apple Orchards and Pumpkins!

Visiting a local farm or apple orchard isn’t only about bringing home produce – it’s about being outside surrounded by the beauty of the autumn and making family memories.

Most pumpkin patches cater to families with fun fall activities which are always a hit with the kids.

Picking a pumpkin from the pumpkin patch, conquering a corn maze, going on a hayride, eating apple cider donuts are just some of the things we look forward to during the months of September and October.

My kids love picking the family pumpkin to carve for Halloween.

The goal is to find just the right broad, round face with plenty of room to design features even more (complicated) awesome than the year before.

Of course, the carver has the final say in what the design will be.

  1. We picked Honey Crisp apples at Sietsma’s on Saturday, September 10 and they are some of the best apples we have EVER had!! I don’t know how long they are in season but they are wonderful. Although they don’t have all the rides/entertainment for kids, they deliver on flavor for cider and doughnuts. If you want quality, go here!!!

    1. Aside from Farmer’s Markets, I know that Koetsier’s and Schwallier’s both carry gourds in their stores. I can’t speak for the other places, however. And they are not u-pick gourds.
