Kentucky’s Best Pumpkin Patches To Visit This Fall

by | Last updated Oct 24, 2023

From the sweetness of apple pies and slushes to witnessing some of the best fall foliage in the country, Kentucky offers pumpkin patches and apple orchards along every country road.

Corn mazes, apple cider slushes, peach pies (my favorite), hayrides, giant playground slides and petting zoos. Fall pumpkin patch season in Kentucky is fun for everyone.

In this guide, we’ll check out some of the best pumpkin patches to visit in Kentucky. Let’s get started.

Jackson’s Orchard in Bowling Green

Jackson’s Orchard sits high up on a hill in Northern Warren County. This place is a true fall experience. Whether you’re picking crisp apples straight from the trees or weaving through the corn maze, you’ll be having a good time. The kids can play on the giant playground or even ride a pony.

This is usually one of our favorites and we go to it every year as one of our favorite things to do in Bowling Green.
