Thank goodness for agricultural tourism in Kansas. Pumpkin patches, corn mazes, and fun farms are all enjoyed outdoors, so go have some fun in 2021!
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.
For more fall fun, check out the list of Barn Sales and Flea Markets at Wichita on the Cheap. Oh, and hey – after you get your pumpkin you’ll need to carve it. Check out my roundup of free pumpkin carving stencils.
