Don’t just bring your family here this fall, bring your favorite traditions, too! Our local farmers would be pleased if you picked your pumpkins from their patches. While you’re out looking for your great pumpkin, you’ll come across gourds and other small harvest goods for your porch. Not to mention you can cross corn mazes off your seasonal list at some of these locations. Carve out some time in your trip to go to these pumpkin patches in Michigan’s U.P. at these locations!
Sunny G Orchard, Stephenson
In addition to pumpkins, this family owned and operated farm has an up-and-coming apple orchard with over 10 varieties to pick. Give them a call to set up a time to come by. Ask about their hayrides and tours! You can also find this farm at the Menominee Farmers Market, ready to sell some pumpkins.
Loud Acres Farm, Crystal Falls
This is your go-to stop for pumpkins of all shapes, sizes and colors grown right on the farm. They also have a large selection of gourds, autumn squash and corn stalks for sale. Save time to sneak through the corn maze and say hello to the animals at the travel petting zoo. Keep an eye out for their Field of Screams events, too.
Bower Family Corn Maze, Bark River
Pick up your pumpkins after you complete this family corn maze in Bark River. Ask about their pumpkin painting days, too. Sometimes, the Bowers offer it with your pumpkin purchase. Before you leave, try to find some of the adorable, playful barn kittens. These little guys got their names from customer submissions!
Getzloff Corn Maze, Wilson
Catch a ride out to the pumpkin patch to find the perfect pick. The Getzloff hayride gives you a chance to relax and enjoy the gorgeous fall color the U.P. is known for and, sometimes, a sunset! Plus, it's already included in your visit. Once you’ve got the pumpkins, visit the farm animals, roam through the corn maze, and snuggle with a tiny barn kitten.
Hayes Corn Maze, Rock
Pick your pumpkins at “The Outback” Pumpkin Patch. That’s only the beginning of the fall fun you’ll have at this farm! Take on the maze challenge, space tilt challenge, ball climb challenge, pumpkin bowling and rope maze to start. Launch objects from the giant slinger, and send them flying. Then, take pictures on the hay mountain, Pictureland and in the pumpkin treehouse. Young ones will enjoy duck races and finding their way out of the straw tunnel maze. And say hello to the animals in Noah’s Ark before swinging by the concession stand for some tasty treats.
Porath Pumpkin Patch and Family Farm, Bark River
The Porath family sells a wide variety of pumpkins in all sorts of sizes. Grab the best jack-o-lanterns, snag some for animal feed and stock up on sweet Dickinson pumpkins to use in place of canned pumpkin puree. In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, anyone currently going through breast cancer treatments gets a free $5 pink pumpkin.
Davis Farms 123, Moran
Davis Farms is another good place to stock up on your porch decor. Pick up pumpkins of all sizes and gourds, too. They are currently growing corn, wheat, oats and sugar beets as well. Make sure to grab a shirt on your way out!
Slagle’s Family Farm, Felch
You can visit this Felch farm if you are pumpkin hunting on Wednesday, Saturday or some Sundays in October. Hand cut your own pumpkin from the field! There are still pre-cut pumpkins available for those who prefer them pre-picked. Once you gather your finds, check out the gourds and mini pumpkins, pick your own flowers and snag some jam or soap for home. You can also feed Jackson the Donkey and the cows any of the damaged pumpkins, or pay for a bag of carrots. A pro tip is to bring bread, grains, fruits and veggies from home. Excluding citrus, onions, garlic and hot peppers, you can feed them this, too. There is onsite cooking in a food truck, so come with an appetite.
Stowaway Farm Pumpkin Patch, Chassell
Enjoy pumpkin picking, a play area, DIY face painting, friendly cows, a forest walk to get you in the spooky spirit and plenty of photo ops for your Christmas cards. This location is open on Saturdays and Sundays through October. It’s cash only, so make sure to get some before you leave home!
Hulkkonen Farm Pumpkin Patch, Nisula
Open Saturdays and Sundays in October and weekdays by appointment, this place has something for everyone. Grab pumpkins, gourds, corn stalks and hay bales for your decor needs. Then, feed some cute animals, slingshot some apples into orbit, wander through mazes, relax on a hayride and cruise down the inflatable slide. Thrill seekers can enjoy axe throwing and a paintball shooting gallery. At night, go on a zombie hunt and play some glow mini golf. Grab snacks from the concession stand before you hit the road.
Palosaari Corn Maze & Pumpkin Patch, Chassell
Get ready for five acres of fun! A day time corn maze, haunted corn maze, wagon rides, horse wagon ride, food truck, farm animals and sunflowers await at this location. And of course — take home the perfect pumpkins.
