The Great Pumpkin Patch is the mother of all pumpkin patches near Arthur. Definitely worth the drive for a huge variety of pumkins and gourds. This is a great family day in the country. It's pretty packed on the weekends, so if you can hit it on a beautiful weekday you will really enjoy yourself.
Gail's Pumpkin Patch is east of Lincoln and opens Sept 15th. The Berry Patch is more than just a pumpkin patch, you can get berries there during the summer too. The Berry Patch is off Rte 54 on Lynn Road near Buffalo Hart in Sangamon County. Pumpkin Works near Paris is outside my usual territory, but it has 11 mazes! Black Bart's Pumpkin Patch outside Warrensburg opens later in the season, not until Sept 21st, and it includes a haunted house. Black Bart's is located between Warrensburg and Latham off Rt. 121.
