Posted by Hillary Waldron on Sun, Oct 05, 2014

pumpkinkidWhether you're with your family or out with your friends, pumpkin picking can be fun for everyone! There are multiple farms in Massachusetts, most not only have pumpkin patches, but even offer hayrides, corn mazes and have small petting zoos! 

Connor's Farm, Danvers: This farm has some awesome activities! Connor's Farm has a corn maze, a large pumpkin patch and farm animals! Want to do something different? Check out Zombie Paintball or the Hysteria Scream Park!

Smolak Farm, North Andover: This beautiful farm, located about 40 minutes North of Boston, has hayrides, a pumpkin patch and a great farm stand with bakery! Grab a pumpkin and some apple cider donuts before you go! 

Crescent Farm, Haverhill: If you're looking for a crazy corn maze, this is where you want to go. The corn maze is located on over 4 acres and has only one way out! The admission for the maze is only $7. If you don't feel like spending the day at the maze, Crescent Farm also has a pumpkin patch, hay rides and snacks. 

Boston Hill Farm, North Andover: This place has a little of everything. During October you can pick your own pumpkins and apples,  take a hayride and check out the petting zoo. The petting zoo is full of farm animals including geese, chicken and bunnies! 

Honey Pot Hill Farm, Stow: I have not been there, but from what I heard, you can not leave without a doughnut. There are two different mazes and hayrides for the family. Trying to get some apple picking in before the end of the season? Honey Pot has a wide variety of apples to choose from!
