Looking for a local pumpkin patch, corn maze, hayride, gourds and other
Halloween activities in Southeastern Kansas? Scroll down this page and you will see the
all of those in Southeastern Kansas, sorted by county. Some are
farms, where you take a hay ride out into the field, others are elaborate farm
stands with mountains of pumpkins and other activities and some are simple
roadside stands. Most have loads of pumpkins to choose from. To really make it
fun for your kids, look for those that have the extra activities, like a corn
maze, spook house, or hayride. There is usually a small fee for the mazes (of
course, the more elaborate mazes tend to charge more. Hayrides are often free.
