If you live in Illinois, chances are you will be on the search for the best Pumpkin patches in Chicago this October!
It's not just known for its fabulous skyscrapers and food festivals you know! Pumpkin picking at a pumpkin farm nearby is the best day out for all the family in the lead up to Halloween.
As soon as September comes around and the kids go back to school, I am searching for opening times of pumpkin patches near me! Right now, we only have one and it books up weeks in advance, so you have to be quick in securing your tickets.
Fortunately, if you live in Chicago, you have lots of great Halloween pumpkin patches nearby to visit. I have picked up the best ones I could find! Make sure you are prepared beforehand with your cute pumpkin patch outfit including the correct shoes to wear for pumpkin picking

3) Puckerville Farms
Puckerville farm has a fabulous pumpkin patch which unlike many of the others is FREE!! Everyone wants a free pumpkin patch to visit, don't they. Perhaps I should do a post on free pumpkin patches in the United States so that everyone can take advantage.
As it is free it does not have amusement rides or other attractions, so if you are looking for a Chicago pumpkin patch for a full day out this is not for you. I still recommend visiting as it is free and has some really nice displays of pumpkins, haybales and scarecrows for the kids to enjoy.
This pumpkin patch opening time is 10am, it is open every day from mid-September until 31st October.
4) Kroll's Fall Harvest Pumpkin Farm Chicago
This has been dubbed the best pumpkin patch in Chicago by visitors so based on this alone I would love to visit!
It is much cheaper to visit this pumpkin patch in Illinois on a weekday compared to the weekend. It is open to 8pm on Mon, Wed, Thurs and Friday so you could take the kids after school if it was not too far away.
While you are here, go through the corn maze or for a hayride. Remember to grab a wagon when pumpkin picking if you want a batch of them. There are so many different types of pumpkins available. You can pick some for carving and some for cooking purposes.
