Goebbert’s Pumpkin Farm and Garden Center
40 W. Higgins Rd, South Barrington, IL
Fall fun is the name of the game at Goebbert’s in South Barrington, where you can not only pick up all the pumpkins your heart desires, but you can also put the kids on a wagon ride or check out the exotic petting zoo (seriously, there’s a giraffe). Before you head home, get lost in the corn maze and check out the pumpkin-eating dinosaur. www.pumpkinfarms.com/home

Didier Farms
16678 W. Aptakisic Rd, Lincolnshire, IL
There is a reason this farm calls its fall pumpkin picking “Pumpkinfest”: The amount of activities available are boundless. A recently added pumpkin playland hosts activities like corn-stalk tunnels and straw-bale mountains. Ten kinds of kettle corn are made on-site daily and unusual pumpkins—green, speckled, white—can be picked. www.didierfarms.com/pumpkinfest
