Top 4 Pumpkin Patches in Chicago

Nothing says fall like pumpkins, and while you could pick one up at the store, it’s much more fun to get your own at a pumpkin patch. It’s even more fun when you can get lost in a corn maze and take a hayride.

If you’re looking to get out of the city for some Midwestern fall fun, here are our favorite pumpkin patches near Chicago.

Goebbert’s Pumpkin Patch and Farm

Goebbert’s Pumpkin Patch and Farm has two locations with fall festivals. The South Barrington location has been hosting this seasonal party since 1978. Both offer hayrides and pig races, and you can even feed a giraffe. Their other location is in Hampshire, which is about an hour from downtown Chicago.

Harvest Thyme Pumpkin Patch

If you’re closer to Indiana, then you’ll want to visit the Harvest Tyme Pumpkin Patch in Lowell. At this family-owned farm you can pick your own pumpkin, or they’ll pick one for you. This is one of the few pumpkin patches that offers free admission, although you will pay a fee for the corn maze, pony rides, and some attractions. If you want to make a day of it, you can get an unlimited fun pass for $18.

Siegel’s Cottonwood Farm

Siegel’s Cottonwood Farm is a place you could spend all day. With over thirty attractions, they’ve got enough things to do to keep you busy from open to close. They’re known for their corn mazes, which change every season. This year they’re “Flying the W” in honor of the Chicago Cubs World Series win.
