Where to Go Pumpkin Picking in Cincinnati

Fall wouldn’t be complete without sprawling corn mazes and bouncy hayrides, and the farms sprinkled throughout the Cincinnati area offer every quintessential autumn activity you could dream of. These activities include, of course, pumpkin picking—and this roundup of local farms offers some insider tips on the best pumpkin patches around.

If you want to meander a corn maze before you meander the pumpkin patch, head to Shaw Farms in Milford. At 15 acres, its corn maze is the largest around, and it’s open every weekend now through Halloween. If you want to take a hayride directly to the pumpkin patch, you can do that at the Burger Farm & Garden Center in Newtown—not to mention jump on a giant pillow and zoom down mini ziplines. Check out the full roster of farms to find one to visit this fall.
