Pumpkin Patches in Michigan
With Halloween just around the corner, it’s almost time to start carving some pumpkins! While there are many places where you can go buy a pumpkin, why not turn it into an adventure? Many Michigan farms and orchards also have pumpkin patches where you and your family can come out and get a pumpkin straight from the source. Taking a trip to a pumpkin patch is a great way to spend time together as a family and is sure to make some memories your children will remember for years to come. Here are just a few Michigan pumpkin patches you can visit
Mitchell Farm has been a fixture of the Holly area since 1837 and is still being run by the Mitchell family! Take a hayride out to their pumpkin patch and pick a pumpkin right off the vine. They also have a play area, ideal for young children. Pumpkin picking and the play area are only open on the weekends, but their farm market is open daily from 9:00 AM-6:00 PM.
Every Saturday and Sunday in October, Upland Hills has their annual Fall Festival, which has enough activities to keep a family busy for a whole day. Not only can you pick pumpkins, you can bring a picnic lunch, visit some animals, take in a magic show, and go on a hayride.
Starting September 20th, you can come visit Erwin Orchard’s pumpkin patch on Saturdays between 9:00 AM and 6:00 PM. Pumpkins cost 50 cents per pound.
One of the best places for fall fun in the Belleville area! DeBuck’s has over ten acres of pumpkins for you to choose from. Pumpkin prices range from $2 to $20. You can also try to find your way through one of three separate corn mazes (each one varies in difficulty), ride some pedal go-carts, or let the kids climb on the tire play area. DeBuck’s is open on Fridays from 6:00 PM-10:00 PM, Saturdays 1:00 PM-10:00 PM, and Sundays 12:00 PM-7:00 PM.
Another great place for families to spend an entire day! Blake Farms will have pumpkins available for picking for the whole month of October and into early November. You can also take a train tour of the farm, try the corn maze, visit the storybook barn, or check out the haunted village.
