15 Best Michigan Pumpkin Patches, Corn Mazes and Farms to Visit This Fall


15 Best Michigan Pumpkin Patches, Corn Mazes and Farms to Visit This Fall | By Sherry Trautman | Travel-Mi.com

Every fall, I just can't get enough of Michigan pumpkin fields, patches and farms.

Isn't there something undeniably exciting about wandering among the gloriously orange pumpkins, sorting through the multi-hued squashes and choosing bundles of dried corn stalks to decorate your home?  I just can't get enough of Michigan pumpkin fields, patches and farms!


What is paradise, but, a garden, an orchard of trees and herbs, full of pleasure and nothing there but delights."

Gull Meadow Farms


Address: Gull Meadow Farms, 8544 Gull Rd., Richland, MI 49083

Gull Meadow Farms is a great spot to pick your fall pumpkins, enjoy fresh delicious donuts and grab some fresh apple cider by the glass, half gallon or whole gallon.  There's a very cute shop with items to decorate your home. 

We used to live about 5 miles from this farm so we would visit several times throughout the fall season to buy mums and explore the corn maze.  There is a train for kids and a tractor drawn hay wagon for the whole family.  Great place!! It's a very fun September and October Michigan event! We love it!

  • Be sure to stop into Gull Meadow Farms in August for their Sunflower Festival!!!  

Their multi-colored sunflowers are planted in mid-May and bloom for about two full weeks in August. 

Tickets are around $13 per person, though children under 36 inches tall are admitted free. Each ticket gets visitors a wagon ride out to the sunflower field and one sunflower to take home.


Uncle Johns Cider Mill

Address: 8614 US-127, St Johns, Michigan

We love visiting Uncle Johns Cider Mill as they have tons of activities and their barn is gorgeous!  Plus they have sunflower picking, bbq and live music at the end of August!

Throughout October daily from 1-7 pm, they offer Tractor Drawn Wagon Rides, Corn Maze, Jumping Pillow and Michigan Pumpkin Patch fun. Check their website for specific dates and information.

Uncle Johns Cider Mill  for gifts, food items, snacks, wine and hard cider.  They make super yummy fresh donuts and fresh cider, so don't miss out!  


Speaking of sunflowers, Michigan is ablaze with their cheery yellow faces throughout the month of August.

Don't miss your chance to wander among the rows of gorgeous sunflowers!  Grab our interactive map and see where to find Michigan sunflowers!

Pop into their cute shop and grab some fresh cider on the way out! Great place to meet friends during fall Michigan afternoons!



Plan to spend at least an hour at Bayne's as one of our favorite things to do is to grab a sandwich in their cute cafe and then lounge outside to enjoy the view of the woods.  It makes for a very relaxing afternoon. It's one of our Favorite Michigan Pumpkin Patches!
