Every year we see wonderful family-owned farms near Wichita that offer pumpkin patches, corn mazes, and other fall fun for families.
These are some of the best pumpkin patches in Kansas, and every year they seem to get even better.
I’ve included contact information for each place and put them all on a handy map farther down on this page.
