October is here and it’s time to get out and enjoy some apple orchards and pumpkin patches! Here’s the 2019 list with 16 family-friendly places to visit that are an hour or less from the Green Bay area. And it’s not just a list of locations–the let’s go mommy list provides you with just about everything you need to know before going including address, phone number, hours, description and costs…all in one place to make planning easier. (But, if you want a quick list, we have that, too–just check out our pumpkin patch and apple orchard guide page here.)

Most places are open through the end of October unless noted otherwise. Since it’s been a particularly wet fall, some places are not offering corn mazes this year, so check the list before you go so you know what to expect. It will be a good idea to wear rain boots or the like wherever you go and be sure to call ahead if the weather is rainy when you plan to visit in case they close or etc.

I hope you and your family find time to check out at least one of these great locations! (And if you know of any that are not listed here that should be, please let me know.) Happy Fall!!

About
The Little Farmer’s mission is to provide you with the experience of a rural farm – a return to the land and your roots. When you visit you will sense the great pride they have in providing you with fresh produce, bakery, caramel apples, fall colors and products. Lifetime family memories start at one of the area’s oldest farms.

All pumpkins are sold by their size using “size rings”. There are 6 different sizes. You are encouraged to measure your pumpkin using the rings which are located around the farm buildings and near the fields. You can pick the pumpkins yourself or buy pre-picked.

They offer a corn maze for $3.25 per person. It is a little over 6 acres and takes about 20 minutes. If you have time, you can help figure out who stole the pie from the Bakers! It’s a fun little game to help your kids learn about animal tracks. There is also a playground which is $1 per person. Most of the playground is for small children and toddlers. Older children can enjoy it as well, but grown kids don’t fit on the tricycles. Some of the things you’ll find here are the straw mountain which is for kids of all ages, straw maze for little ones, trike path for little tikes on trikes, swings and tepees. There is also a Pedal Cart Track next to the playground which is fun for all ages!!

Visit the barnyard and find goats, Scottish Highland Cattle, sheep, peafowl and chickens. Kids can feed the goats with goat pellets for 25 cents per hand.

Hayrides are on weekends through October from 11-4PM. Each ride lasts about 25 minutes and costs $4.40 per person. Babies in arms are free. (All rides are weather dependent.)

They also have an apple orchard and offer pick-your-own apples. On weekends you can hitch a ride (for free) to the orchard from 10-4 on the hayride. U-pick bags must be pre-purchased from a register; you may not bring your own containers for picking or reuse bags from a previous visit.

Concessions are available on weekends from local community groups. A different group will come in each weekend and grill up some food at the Brat Fry. The money they earn will go towards their groups to help out the community. Cash only.
