Each and every one should do you just fine. 

Arison Farm, Granbury, TX

Arison Farm is a modest farm sitting on eight acres north of Granbury, Texas. A relatively new kid on the block, Arison Farm has already made a name for itself for its hospitality. Each year, they host live music, offer face painting, farm to table food, and local artisans.

Floydada, Texas is known as the “Pumpkin Capital of the USA,” according to the Floydada Pumpkins website. The surrounding county produces roughly 1,800 acres of pumpkins annually, making Floydada Pumpkins a must-see destination for your next u-pick adventure.

Barton Hill Farms, Bastrop, TX

Barton Hill Farms opens in late September and runs through early November. The farm offers field trips, birthday parties, and a fall festival celebration every weekend during that time. They boast nearly endless attractions, but the main event is the u-pick pumpkin patch. 

Blueberry Ridge Farm, Mineola, TX

Blueberry Ridge Farm claims to be the oldest blueberry farm in the Lone Star State. While their blueberries are not to be missed, the main attraction this fall is undoubtedly the reopening of their u-pick pumpkin patch after a year out of commission. $7 per child gets you access to tons of activities plus a pumpkin.

Elves Farm, Denison, TX

Elves Farm plays double duty during the holiday season, serving as both a Christmas tree destination and pumpkin patch in the fall. The pumpkin patch opens in early October and remains open through the end of the month. They specialize in Big Macs, Cinderella’s, carnival squash, minis, and more.

Lone Star Family Farm, Stephenville, TX

The Lone Star Family Farm styles itself as “The Funnest Place in Texas to get your pumpkins,” and while we can’t independently verify the claim, we can tell you it’s pretty dang awesome.
