Looking for a local pumpkin patch, corn maze, hayride, gourds and other Halloween activities in East-Central Florida?  Scroll down this page and you will see the all of those in East-Central Florida, 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.

You can access many pumpkin and other recipes and other resources from the drop down menus at the top of the page or the site search.

Keep in mind, many farms, pumpkin patches, corn mazes and Haunted Houses are trying to cope with rapidly changing state COVID requirements: ALWAYS see their own website, Facebook page or call them before you go.

NOTE: Many of the farms are dropping their websites and switching to Facebook pages - but they don't tell anyone, including search engines like Google, Bing, Yahoo or us, or redirect their website,  thus breaking all links to them. If a link is broken please click the "click here to report a broken link or blank page" so we can find the replacement link! Thanks!

After Halloween, find a Christmas tree at a local Christmas tree farm (and enjoy a bonfire, smore, hot chocolate and free hayrides, and often Santa visits!

Payment: Cash, Check, Debit cards, Visa/MasterCard, Discover, AmEx. (All proceeds go to charity. Found this on Yahoo search: Community Presbyterian Church in Celebration is hosting its annual Pumpkin Patch, with 100 percent of the proceeds going directly to Help Now of Osceola Inc. to fund its domestic violence program. The Pumpkin Patch features a wide selection pumpkins. There will be four deliveries of pumpkins over the course of the sale to ensure freshness. Last year, the Pumpkin Patch raised thousands of dollars for Help Now. Come on out to help raise money for this important cause.  (UPDATED: October 21, 2019)
    A visitor writes on September 26, 2014: "I am a Celebration resident and avoid this pumpkin patch. The set-up is great. It is well decorated with great photo opportunities and pumpkins galore. The problem is the staff. They are grumpy old men who rudely gouge you in the name of charity. When I asked how much they actually replied "how much you got?" and he wasn't smiling. during the same visit I saw staff YELLING at several kids for running and being kids. They also pressure you to buy or donate if you take a picture within the patch. A shame because it truly is a charming pumpkin patch on church property. "
    A visitor writes on July 15, 2013: "This listing is correct in that it is a pumpkin patch but you forgot to mention that it is only for the super rich residents of Celebration FL. I went here in 2012 and was told that the pumpkins were based on donation and the proceeds go to charity. When my family picked out pumpkins we were told that the donation price was $375 for 5 pumpkins and that was the "expected" donation. When I told the worker that telling me a price was not a donation he became belligerent. (he even said that "the stem alone on one of the pumpkins was worth $25)! Needless to say that $75 a pumpkin is a little outrageous even for charity. One very sad thing that I saw was a mother of 2 children measuring pumpkins because she could not afford to pay the "donation" and did not want to leave empty handed. I saw many people pick out pumpkins, learn the "Price" and leave because it was ridiculous! BTW - have been to many pumpkin patches recommended on this site in Colorado and had just recently moved to FL when I went to the Celebration Patch in 2012. Celebration patch was far from anything that is normal for pumpkin prices.".
    A visitor writes on August 08, 2012:
    "Nice staff, great prices, nice pumpkins, usually have a Great Pumpkin area set up with Charlie Brown cutouts and the rest of the gang. It's a work in progress, but they've managed to add something new every year."
