Pumpkin picking is one of the many activities to do at Goebbert’s Fall Festival

With Halloween fast approaching, don’t miss your chance to take part in a favorite fall pastime: a trip to Goebbert’s Pumpkin Patch and Family Farm. With two convenient locations in the Chicago & Beyond region, including Hampshire and South Barrington, planning a visit is easy.

The farm’s annual six week Fall Festival features a variety of attractions for the whole family, from pony and camel rides to a corn stalk maze. For those feeling adventurous, travel through Goebbert’s Haunted House or stop by the exotic animal petting farm. Yes. Exotic animal petting farm. It’s home to tigers, giraffes and kangaroos. Or, enjoy a tasty lunch at the Farmer’s Wife Café. Make sure to leave room for some seasonal tasty desserts, such as apple cider donuts and pumpkin cookies.
