Pumpkin U Pick and Maze Running Through Greater Lansing

Pumpkin picking 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?”

True confession: I get a little blue each September when the warm weather starts to taper. The saving grace is that it’s pumpkin carving and eating season – keeping the good times a’rolling.


Double bonus: there are lots of places to U Pick pumpkins all around town. Plus, some spots have corn mazes to run through!
