We’ve visited each of these patches, personally.  We’ve posed for pictures, bought pumpkins, fed farm animals, drank apple cider and even a corn-flavored soda just to bring you this list!  Have a Happy October!

Barton Hill Farms, Bastrop

Located West of Austin in Bastrop, you’ll love this fun pumpkin patch, with a corn maze, games and much more right on the shores of the Colorado River!  Click HERE to read more!

Mainstay Farm, Cleburne

One of my very favorites, I love the big farm, with a hay barn where kids can jump and play, zip lines and the best 3 story treehouse ever!  Bring a book and just let the kids run and play in the fresh air, or better yet, let the farm help you feel like a kid again!  Click HERE to read more!

The Dallas Arboretum’s Pumpkin Village

You won’t find more pumpkin anywhere in Texas than at the Dallas Arboretum, where even the buildings are made out of them!  They have a different theme each year, it’s the Wizard of Oz for 2017!  Admission gets you into the Arboretum, and just a little more to make a day of it and explore the Children’s Adventure Garden, too!  Click HERE for more pictures and fun things to do nearby!

Sweet Berry Farm, Marble Falls

This fun berry patch and peach orchard does an overhaul each fall to a pumpkin patch and terrific corn maze with all the games and events you come to expect at a Pumpkin Patch!  We love the Make and Take Scarecrow, and horse rides!  Click HERE to read more!

Yesterland Farm, Canton

Yesterland Farm has a great pumpkin patch, but why my son looks so distraught is there is SO much more, and he’s through taking pictures, he wants to go play!  Rides, corn maze and best of all, apple cannons!  If you’ve never shot an apple cannon, and watched the apple turn to sauce on impact, your life just isn’t complete!  Click HERE to read more!

Lone Star Family Farm, Stephenville

As Pumpkin Patches go, Lone Star wins for actually growing their own Pumpkins!  In addition to all the standard farm games, they have a huge, 7 acre corn maze that is open late Friday and Saturday nights, for a completely different experience in the maze!  I love that it’s open into mid-November, long after Halloween is over!

Hall’s Pumpkin Patch, Grapevine

Hall’s Pumpkin Patch is a yearly favorite in DFW, with FREE admission and tons of cute pumpkin photo ops and games!  They do charge for the Corn Maze and Hay Rides, if you choose to do them!  We love that the hayride stops to allow you to feed the donkeys and cows!  Click HERE to read more!

Preston Trail Farms’ Big Orange Pumpkin Farm, Gunther 

This working farm, North of Frisco on Preston Road, is attached to a True Value Hardware Store and Cafe!  The Farm offers tons of pumpkins, hay rides and lots of farm animals!  We made the long drive one Sunday because my kids were thrilled that it was a farm that allows well-behaved dogs, and we could take our pup, Dublin, who loved all the farm animals!  Click HERE to read more!

The Robinson Family Farm, Temple

This big farm in Temple, North of Georgetown and South of Waco, has plenty to do to spend a day on the farm!  Feed the goats, take a hay ride, find your way out of the corn maze and more, but our hands-down favorite is the sandbox filled with corn kernels, it’s something you just have to experience to really appreciate!  Click HERE to read more!

Shadow Creek Pumpkin Farm, Midlothian

Just opening for 2017, Shadow Creek offers hay rides, a corn maze and fun games!  Open late, I suggest spending a fall evening under their twinkling lights!  It’s very much a come and stay a while type of place!  I loved that they have a Pumpkin Decorating Center, or you can leave your pumpkin to be professionally decorated by them!  Click HERE to read more!

Since I only want to give you the most up to date list, I left off a couple of our favorites that we haven’t visited in over 3 years, but definitely deserve honorable mention; Blessington Farms West of Houston and Rockin’ K Maze near Corpus Christi!
