This page provides a detailed list of Minnesota's pumpkin patches, corn mazes, hay rides and other Halloween farm stuff!!   Click here to see the listings of pumpkin patches, corn mazes and farms in Minnesota or just scroll down the page! Some are farms, where you take a hay ride out into the field, others are elaborate farm stands with mountains of pumpkins and other activities and some are simple roadside stands.  All should have loads of pumpkins to choose from.  To really make it fun for  your kids, look for those that have the extra activities, like a corn maze, spook house, or hayride.  There is usually a small fee for the mazes (of course, the  more elaborate mazes tend to charge more. Hayrides are often free. ALWAYS call before you go to confirm all information, they don't always report changes to me!

We have loads of related resources here, too.

On our Pick-your-own website, we also have pages with our own simple instructions on canning, freezing and drying  many other fruits and vegetables, such as  how to make jam, apple butter, applesauce, spaghetti sauce, salsa, pickles, ketchup or freezing corn  (these links open new pages, just close them to return here).   Be sure to come back at Christmas if you are looking for a cut-your-own Christmas tree farm!   Look at the bottom of the page for links to resources on home canning, picking tips, recipes, etc..

    A visitor writes on October 17, 2009: "I was on the search for a TRUE pick your own pumpkin patch. We are relatively new to MN and have been to "patches" where the venue has placed the pumpkins in an open field. I saw the description of Dimler Pumpkin Patch which triggered my memories of pumpkin picking as a child in PA. As soon as we drove up to Dimler, I felt like a child again. Our three year old son had a blast walking through the mud/dirt to find pumpkins still attached to their vines. A huge parcel of land with tons of pumpkins and gourds. We found 5 beautiful pumpkins of varying shapes, colors and sizes. It was not crowded and our experience was exactly as I wished. No fancy building of gimmicks and overpriced anything. Dimler's worked on an honor system with a box placed at the entrance. In this day and age something unheard of which just solidified that some things still do exist for the fun and love of it for relatively little money and without the fanfare and commercial tie-ins. 5 stars for Dimler Pumpkin Patch. We will be back next year for sure!!"

    A visitor writes on October 15, 2009:
    "We have gone there the last three years, and have mostly enjoyed it. After you pay $5.00 per person to get in, the scarecrow display is cute, but not overly impressive. Most of the other activities are for younger children (tractor trykes that pedal in a circle, slides, etc) and besides the ponies that walk in a circle, the only other animal is a big sad looking camel (the ponies and the camel cost extra). The hay pile for jumping has been fun, but my kids get bored of it quickly. The pumpkins are expensive, the restaurant is expensive too. We will find another patch this year. It would be nice to have a hay maze or a petting zoo, and hopefully one not as expensive for its activities or pumpkins."
    Comments: One visitor wrote in October 5, 2007
    : "I took my family to emma krumbee and I will never do it again i had to pay 16dollars for my family for nothing and everythiing was so expensive the apples were out ragously priced and there was nothing to do for the money I paid and the pumpkins cost to much"
    A visitor writes on September 20, 2008: "I would agree that Emma Krumbees DOES have high prices and seems to "nickel & dime" people. They have a reputation of being expensive. I would suggest going somewhere else for lower prices & an equal amount of fun."
    A visitor writes on October 01, 2008: "Emma Krumbees charges $5 per person for entrance to the annual Scarecrow Festival, which includes a little homemade kiddie train, mountain of hay to climb on, free kids music, off-road trikes, a slide built into a hill, some new climbing sets for the kids, a free but very brief wagon ride to the pumpkin patch, and some animals. Things you pay extra for: pony rides, camel rides, purchasing pumpkins, apples, strawberries, gourds, etc. They also have a great gift shop and a bakery. The restaurant on the other side of the orchard is very popular and can get pretty busy, but we've always enjoyed it. Last weekend was our 4th annual family trip to Emma Krumbees, and we had a great time! I definitely recommend it to anyone with kids - especially those who like to play outside. "
    A visitor writes on October 11, 2008: "My husband and I went to Emma Krumbees yesterday and were very disappointed. I had heard from others including my husband how cool the Scarecrow Festival is, so we headed over there after having fun at the Minnesota Harvest (which btw I do recommend). We arrived about 5:30ish and they close at 6pm. I decided to pay the $5 per person to go in and check out the scarecrows since I thought they would be impressive. Maybe a handful were creative. Never again, they didn't have many and a lot of them were repeats. I have never seen so many Michael Phelps in my life... Plus my husband is wheelchair bound so we were not able to go ride through the Orchard, the lady said she would check for us and but didn't get back with us. Everything was kid oriented but since we do not have kids it was a total waste of $10.... I thought I better warn all before paying $5 per person for the Scarecrow Festival. "
