There are so many pumpkin patches to visit in Chicagoland! They range from little patches where you head to the field and pick your own pumpkin to wash off afterwards, to big farm destinations with corn mazes, jumping pillows, and more. We’ve updated our list this year with more pumpkin patches for you to pick from. We’ve even included pumpkin patches that also offer apple picking so you can make it a combo trip!

This article is sponsored by the featured listings.

Rain can make the fields muddy, so be sure to wear boots or bring a change of shoes for the car.
