I love fall and visiting pumpkin patches with the kids. Hayrack rides, picking out our own pumpkins to decorate and playing at a pumpkin patch are the highlight of the changing season.

We have visited the Omaha area pumpkin patches and I wanted to explore and see what else is nearby. I was shocked when I found 15 pumpkin patches within driving distance of the Omaha Metro area. Most of the ones listed are less than an hour drive from our area.  I’ve included the dates and times the pumpkin patches are open, the cost and a few activities included. Make sure to click the title of the pumpkin patch to visit their website and view more about each pumpkin patch.
