This page provides a detailed list of Southwest 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 Southwest 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..

I'm always looking for more to add and feedback about any patch, stand or farm you have visited, so write me using the Feedback form!  And if you have a farm and want to add it or correct the information, please click on Add My Farm!
