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

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
Christmas tree farm (and enjoy a bonfire, smore, hot chocolate and

on your exploration through the corn! Be prepared to laugh and learn as you wander the 8-acre maze, encountering installations and trivia at every
turn! While you’re here, you can take part in our many Attractions; ride on a horse drawn wagon, fire the mighty potato cannons, pick out your own
Halloween pumpkin, and stay for lunch at the Corn Cafe, serving farm fresh food all day. Young kids will delight in our larger-than-life playground
featuring a giant double drain-tube slide, a jump pad, tractor tire jungle gym, and giant games! Older kids (and adults!) can enjoy a race around
the track in our pedal carts at Dave’s Derby. And folks love to check out the view of the maze from the perspective of our giant walk-in camera
