Looking for a local pumpkin patch, corn maze, hayride, gourds and other
Halloween activities in Southeastern New Hampshire? Scroll down this page and you will see the
all of those in Southeastern New Hampshire, 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. Hayrides are often free.

see their own website, Facebook page or call them before you go.
NOTE: Many of the farms are dropping their websites and switching to Facebook pages - but they don't tell
anyone, including search engines like Google, Bing, Yahoo or us, or redirect their website, thus breaking all links to them. If a link is broken

A visitor writes on September 23, 2009: "I drove a half
hour with my 1 year old son, after seeing their website. They list
they have a pumpkin patch which parents like to use for taking
pictures of their children. VERY disappointed. 1. After gathering
MANY items to purchase in the store, I go to pay and find out they
ONLY ACCEPT CASH. I was dumbfounded in 2009 if you have a big enough
operation to have a store that you don't take cards!!!! They even
take Pie orders for Thanksgiving...they do this all with cash?? I
don't really care-its their choice however they should REALLY
consider at least listing this on their website, because I wouldn't
have bothered if I saw that. 2. The pumpkin area was TINY, there
couldn't of been more than maybe 75.....and they were in a box-type
seclusion, so I don't know how anyone could feel invited to take
pictures or sprawl through the obvious made-for-retail-section. "
