Home of Colorado’s longest-running corn maze and pumpkin patch, Anderson Farms is a historic must-see. They also have hayrides (both haunted and non-haunted), a huge playground and farm animals.
Bartels Farm is a family-owned and family-operated farm established in 1905. Following tradition, the current owners still grow organic corn, hay, wheat and barley, but are known for their expansive pumpkin patch and vegetable garden. Choose to pick your own pumpkin or grab a pre-picked pumpkin at Bartels Farm, and enjoy a corn maze, straw maze, tractor-pulled hay rides, and a petting zoo!
Although it is surrounded by several fun attractions, the Fritzler Corn Maze is of course known for their impressive maze. The winding trail extends 1.6 miles, has an impressive design history, and includes two phases for participants to conquer — one sunny and peaceful, and the other dark and haunted. But don’t worry! Fritzler has a cozy fire to wind down by after an eventful (and scary!) experience.
Solve the mystery of “The Farm Scene Investigation” in the corn maze at Hankins Farms. Make sure you swing by the pumpkin patch and jump on the quad bungee trampoline! This farm is geared towards families with children ages 2-14, but is suitable for the kid-at-heart as well.
5: Harvest Farm
Harvest Farm is a 209-acre farm and rehabilitation center for men hoping to break cycles of addiction and homelessness. Your attendance to the farm’s fall festival and corn maze directly supports their mission — plus you and your family will have a blast in the meantime! The fall festival hosts an absurd amount of activities, including a 10-acre corn maze, pig races, an obstacle course, a pumpkin junction and corn cannons.
6: Lukens Farms
With impressive livestock and farm animals on hand, Lukens Farms provides visitors with the opportunity to pick their own apples and pumpkins, and pet some adorable farm animals in the meantime. The farm uses integrated pest management practices so you can know your selections are coming from a safe and conscientious source!
Visit Miller Farms to teach kids what working on a farm looks like and where their produce comes from. You can harvest your own vegetables (and that of course includes pumpkins!), jump on a giant jumping pillow, climb a hay pyramid and visit the petting zoo. Make sure to stop by “Antique Alley”, one of Colorado’s largest tractor, farm equipment and aviation collections.
This 15-acre maze is designed for laughter during the day and fear at night. Enjoy the fun daytime activities, like a scavenger hunt, pumpkin patch, bounce houses, farm animals and a pedal car race, but be sure to stick around for a challenging haunted maze at night!
9: Osborn Farm
150 years ago, the Osborn family made Colorado their home. Today, the fifth and sixth generations are providing the Northern Colorado area with an abundance of plump pumpkins on their gorgeous farmland. Check out their variety of vendors that make the atmosphere alive with activity.
This place is just as the name proclaims — a pumpkin pickin’ paradise. Travel through either the haunted or non-haunted maze, haunted house, or the pumpkin patch. The weather may be chilly, but this place still feels like paradise.
The kind folks at Scarecrow Gardens are proud to say that their produce is “so fresh, it’s scary.” They emphasize growing high-quality and flavorful fruits and vegetables, and we are happy they have included pumpkins, winter squash, decorative gourds and Indian Corn in the mix. If you enjoy your experience this fall, you can revisit Scarecrow Gardens in December to cut down your own Christmas tree!
Take home something from the farm at — you guessed it — Something From the Farm. This family-owned pumpkin patch is the perfect place to grab a pumpkin, enjoy a hayride and explore their 3-acre corn maze. Don’t miss the selection of fall necessities available in their country store!
Tigges Farm is known for their pumpkin patch and roasted chilies, among other fresh produce. Our favorite part about this place is that they offer free admission to the farm and weekend activities. So there should be nothing holding you back from visiting Tigges Farm to pick your perfect pumpkin!
