Pumpkin Patches: Where to find Pumpkin Picking Farms + Events in Greater Lansing

Pumpkin patch pumpkin picking feature

Fall means Pumpkin Picking Time is Here and We’re Ready for it!

Pumpkin picking at a pumpkin patch is a right of passage into the Fall season in Michigan. It’s our way of telling ourselves, “It’s ok, the weather getting colder is fun, remember?”

This pumpkin patch list is sweet and there are lots of places to go picking pumpkins all around town. Plus, some spots have corn mazes to run through!

I can say this with excitement because no matter which one you choose it’s going to be great. Even better, you could go to multiple this year because there are events, mazes, treats, at many locations.

Reese Farm

This family-owned farm is nostalgic for me and my family because we grew up right down the street from the farm. Most people think of Reese Farm for their delicious corn but they also have pumpkins too!

Reese Farm is a self-serve pumpkin patch.

You can pull up and park, starting picking pumpkins, and when you’re done, place $5 cash in a little container and be on your way.
