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

The pumpkin farms we have discovered so far are located in Richland, St. Johns, Freeland, Midland, Saginaw, Petoskey, Harbor Springs, St. Helen, Beaverton, Mt. Pleasant, Belleville, Pinckney, Fenton, Grand Haven, Gobles, Kalamazoo, and Grand Rapids Michigan.
Love apple orchards and u-pick apples? We've got a few great places for you!

Helpful Map Tips:
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!
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.
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?
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!

It's pretty cool that Bayne's Apple Valley has been awarded Mid-Michigan's Best Orchard 3 years in a row!
Bayne's Apple Valley has great homemade baked goods and my Dad, especially, can't resist picking up freshly made donuts and fresh pressed pure apple cider.
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!
This shirt is so stinkin' cute! Imagine pictures with this shirt and holding a small pumpkin!

Isn't there something just amazing about beautiful red apples on a tree? Almost swoon-worthy!! I love watching the green apples being dipped in gooey caramel. So yummy!
