The leaves are changing, the air is crisp, and temperatures are actually bearable — it’s officially pumpkin patch weather! Whether you’re in it for the pumpkin picking or the hot apple cider, hay mazes, and wagon rides, here are the local pumpkin patches we recommend checking out this time of year.

🎃 My Rec: Louisville’s 7th Generation Farm is perfect if you’re looking for something family-friendly with TONS of activities for the kiddos — hayrides, rubber ducky races, and farm animals for petting! But as an adult, this foodie especially loved the local vendors selling their fall harvests: fresh breads, jams, honeys, baked goods, roasted chilies, and produce. Yummm.”

🎃 Producer Paul Karolyi’s Rec: "If you're looking for a classic pick-your-own experience, Erie’s Anderson Farms is the spot. They've got tons of decorations and festive activities — and plenty of teens cruising around looking for trouble. To paraphrase our pal Conor McCormick-Cavanaghfrom Westword, ‘it's classic Halloween behavior.’"

🎃 Producer Erin O’Tool’s Rec:
 “My favorite spot is the pumpkin patch at Fritzler Farm Park in LaSalle. Not only is it a great place to walk around and pick out the perfect canvas for your jack o’ lantern art, they also have a pumpkin cannon! It’s SO much fun and oddly satisfying to see how far you can shoot these things across a field.”
