The is the only pumpkin patch in Texas on this list that I’ve actually visited. Barton Hill Farms is an Austin area pumpkin patch and a quick drive outside the city. There’s so much for the entire family to enjoy and is such a memorable experience. Don’t forget to bring the camera!
New for 2016, Barton Hill Farms in Bastrop, Texas features a Lonesome Dove designed corn maze! There is also an easier maze for the kids with a Spookly the Square Pumpkin design. After tackling the mazes, you can enjoy the rest of your day with a number of activities at this farm.

What started as a five-acre pumpkin patch in Amarillo, Texas has now turned into one of the most entertaining pumpkin patches in the state. Maxwell’s has something for everyone in the family, including hayrides, cow train, pedal cars, corn maze, pumpkin picking, apple cannon, and zip lines.
Grab a turkey leg, hand-battered corn dog, Frito pie, or nachos from Maxwell’s Munchies for lunch. There is also a market where you can stop in if you just need a pumpkin. However, you can definitely spend an entire autumn day at Maxwell’s Pumpkin Farm.
