9 Arkansas Pumpkin Patches | Central Arkansas Family Guide

13 Shares

9 Arkansas pumpkin patches in and around the central Arkansas area. Family guide to visiting your favorite farms with hayrides, corn mazes and more.

Fall in central Arkansas is a little different from where I grew up in New England. It has taken some time to get use to the 85 degree weather in October, but even though the days are hot it’s still a family tradition to visit a pumpkin patch every year.

Some years have looked different than others but most things have stayed the same. We need hayrides, corn mazes, good food and pumpkins.

Follow me on…

Be sure to check your favorite Arkansas pumpkin patches’ website for the most recent updates, pricing and hours.

It’s been almost 10 years since we’ve been able to pick our own apples and enjoy fresh apple cider donuts, but I’m sure fall family activities would look different all over the country.

In central Arkansas you’ll find those hayrides, mazes and food, but you’ll also find sunflower fields, zip lines, hamster wheels and more.
