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


Russell Farms

Saturdays and Sundays, Sept. 29 - Oct. 28 // 10 a.m. - 6 p.m.
Friday, Oct. 12 and Friday, Oct. 19 // 2-6 p.m.

The Russell Family has owned and operated Russell Farms Noblesville for more than 50 years, and as part of their annual fall festival 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 is $10 per person. Kids two years and under are free. Senior citizens (60 years and older) are $8 and veteran and active military members are free with ID. Admission includes unlimited activities.


Spencer Farm

Wednesday - Saturday // 10 a.m. - 6 p.m.
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 pick red raspberries and seedless grapes. In the store, find pre-picked pumpkins and mums, corn, gourds and sweet treats like fudge.

 


Stonycreek Farm

Sept. 29 - Oct. 31 // 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.

Stonycreek Farm is perhaps the longest running pumpkin operation in Hamilton County – nearly half a century. Beyond the traditional hayride to the pumpkin patch, Stonycreek has tons of fun for the kids, including farm animals, a zip line on the weekends, candle making, a corn cob cannon, gourd slingshot and the classic pumpkin train.

Parking is $5 and most activities require a ticket. Tickets are $1 each.

 

 


Stuckey Farm Market

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

Harvest Festival is each Saturday and Sunday Sept. 16 - Oct. 22

At Stuckey Farm Market, 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.
