It seems the second the weather drops below 70 degrees, fall is in full effect with pumpkin spice everything and caramel apples. The quintessential autumn activity is spending a crisp fall afternoon at a pumpkin patch, picking the perfect one to adorn your porch.

Here are three pumpkin patches in Hamilton County, Indiana where you can get your fall fix with friends and family.


Russell Farms

Saturdays and Sundays, Sept. 28 - Oct. 27 // 10 a.m. - 6 p.m.
Friday, Oct. 18 // 2-6 p.m.

The Russell Family has owned and operated Russell Farms in Noblesville for more than 50 years, and as part of their annual fall festival, they make it their mission to educate guests about agriculture and farm life. At Russell Farms, you can find hayrides, two scavenger hunt corn mazes, miniature golf, a farm animal petting zoo and a play area for the kids.

Admission charge on weekends is $12 each, ages 3-20 and $10 each, ages 21 and older. Children two years and younger are free. Veterans and active military members get in free with proper ID. Admission includes unlimited activities. Pumpkins are an additional charge.


Spencer Farm

Sunday // 1 p.m. - 5 p.m.


If you want to pick the perfect pumpkin without all the hubbub of activities like other attractions, head to Spencer Farm in Noblesville. There are hayrides out to the pumpkin patch on the weekends, but other than that, the experience is up to you. Dig your own mum or visit the farm store to find pre-picked pumpkins and mums, corn, gourds and sweet treats like fudge.

Saturday // 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Sunday // 1 p.m. - 5 p.m.

At Stuckey Farm Orchard and Cider Mill in Sheridan, you can get your pumpkin and apple fix at once. Stroll through the 4,000 trees to pick from 27 varieties of apples, and grab the perfect pumpkin in the 15 acre patch. Inside the Country Market, watch cider pressed in front of your eyes and grab in-season Indiana produce, honey, jams and more. Don’t leave without a box of donuts, either.

Admission is $12.50 per person and children under the age of two are free. Parking is free. Admission includes unlimited wagon rides, and access to Adventure Acres, the corn maze and popular Pig Races. Apple canons are $5 for 10 shots.
