Metro Detroit’s best pumpkin patches, mapped

Get your gourds

View as Map

Shorter, cooler days are here, and the leaves will soon start to turn in southeast Michigan (although they’ve already started in the Upper Peninsula). The countryside offers many places to take a day trip, snag a pumpkin or three, drink some cider, and take a hay ride.

We’ve rounded up some of the best pumpkin patches around southeast Michigan. Many will also serve up “u-pick” options for apples, and now is certainly the time to stock up. Corn mazes and haunted houses have also been noted, where applicable.

Of course, if time is limiting, check out the farm stands and farmers market in your city. Eastern Market in Detroit always has an array of pumpkins and gourds on hand.

Did we forget one of your favorites? Leave a comment and we’ll make sure to add it.

Note: locations are ordered north to south.
