A favorite fall activity in Michigan: picking out pumpkins at your favorite u-pick pumpkin patch. Not sure where the best pumpkin patch near you is? Check out our list of favorite Michigan u-pick pumpkin patches below. Crack open a cider and get to carving once you get home.
Deep Roots Produce
Deep Roots Produce is a Caledonia-based farm market that offers a large patch of fairytale pumpkins, hayrides, and a 10-acre corn maze with three different trails.
Morse Brothers Farm
Comstock Park, MI
Morse Brothers is well-known in West Michigan for its giant pumpkins. If you’re looking for the best pumpkins, without the crowd, Morse Brothers Farm is the farm for you.
Plymouth Orchards and Cider Mill
Plymouth Orchards has the pumpkin patch, but also the autumnal goodies. This extensive cider mill offers pies and other baked goods, along with apples, gourds, and pumpkins. They also have live music on the weekends.
The Spicer family has been running Spicer Orchards for six generations. It includes a giant playground and winery. Take a wagon ride to the pumpkin patch and spend the rest of your visit exploring other aspects of the operation.
Schwallier’s Country Basket
It’s one of our favorites for apple picking, but the bakery and a well-stocked selection of apple butters, jams, and other fall treats make Schwallier’s a favorite for pumpkin picking as well. Visit the store and petting zoo before deciding on the perfect pumpkin.
Traverse City, MI
Jacob’s Farm offers u-pick orchards and a pumpkin patch, but its main attraction is its corn maze, which visitors should plan on spending around two hours navigating.
Hayes Corn Maze
The main draw at Hayes Corn Maze is its pumpkin patch and seven-acre corn maze, but the Upper Peninsula attraction also has hay rides, a rope maze, pumpkin slinger, tree house, straw tunnel, and more.
Once you’re home carving your pumpkins, crack open a can of cider for fall-time festivities. Caramel Apple and Porch Sittin Cinnamon are two of our favorites hard ciders to pair with pumpkin and pumpkin related activities.
