It's Pumpkin Time!

Whether you want pumpkins for jack-o-lanterns, decorating or to make your own puree, these patches have what you're looking for, plus many other harvest-time and Halloween delights.

Halloween is almost here, and while you plan your costumes, it's also time to plan for pumpkins. 

No matter the size you're looking for, from miniature pumpkin gourds, to giants weighing in at 100 pounds, pumpkin patches in the area are ready for you. 

The map above has pins to show the location of apple orchards, farm markets and pumpkin patches. The purple pins offer apples and pumpkins, red offer apples and orange offer pumpkins. Many locations also have other activities (like spook houses and hayrides), and some have admission fees. Here is more information on apple orchards.

Busy Barn Adventure Farm is great as well. They are open on the weekends in October. They offer a Hay Ride out to a field to pick a pumpkin as well as numerous other activities and animals. We have taken our daughter and our god daughter there for Halloween and Easter. It's great!! http://www.busybarnsfarm.com/ Note: I am not affiliated with the farm at all. I just love it. :)

Apple Holler is an appropriate name--when you see how much they charge for apples, you will holler! Last time we went picking there, they were out of apples and we "picked" a bag at Outpost instead. That said, their brunch is fantastic and reasonably priced.

My wife, 6 and 9 year old daughters and myself have been to Apple holler, Neimans Orchard as well as The Family Farm. All 3 are great for families with small children.

Jerry Smith's farm in Kenosha is a must see.

I prefer the plastic pumpkins. They do not become a soupy mess on my porch in Spring, the lighbulb doesn't get blown out by the wind, and I can light them by throwing a switch from inside the house.

Don't forget the local stands in town: 188th and Silver Spring and Capitol Drive, just west of Pilgrim.
