Looking for a local pumpkin patch, corn maze, hayride, gourds and other Halloween activities in Southern Ohio?  Scroll down this page and you will see the all of thoses in Southern Ohio, sorted by county. 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.  Most 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.
