Give The Season’s Greeting To The Pumpkin-Eating Dinosaur At This Pumpkin Patch And Apple Orchard

Goebbert’s Pumpkin Patch & Apple Orchard is full of pumpkin-packed fun and entertainment for all ages!

Fall is truly the best time of the year, isn’t it? The crisp cool air, the gorgeous autumn leaves, the welcome dose of pumpkin to every dish and drink under the sun. If you’re like one of us and whole-heartedly embrace everything autumn, you’ll want to take a short trip down to Goebbert’s Pumpkin Patch, where they’ve got tons of seasonal attractions for the whole family, including a pumpkin-eating dinosaur!

If anyone knows how to capture the spirit of autumn, it’s Goebbert’s near Hampshire, Illinois (50 miles outside Chicago). Every year the pumpkin patch and apple orchard holds a fall festival that is truly their time to shine. From now until October 31, you can enjoy the plethora of attractions at-the-ready on the grounds.

Open rain-or-shine daily from 9 am – 6 pm, Goebbert’s is your fall destination. Before you get lost in all the fun, food, and games they have to offer, you might want to first amble through their pumpkin patch in search of a pumpkin that’d put Charlie Brown to shame. Or, on the other side of the fruit spectrum, you can fill up a half-peck or full-peck bag with their Fuji and Gala apples now in season.

Once you’ve claimed your prize(s), you can reward yourself with their endless attractions, which include, but are not limited to: a life-sized Charlotte’s Web, corn stalk maze, play yard, haunted house, tire mountain, straw mound, pig races, weekend magic shows (October), giant pumpkin slide, PUMPKIN CANNON, pedal karts, pumpkin express train, animal land, pig races, and so much more!
