Burt's Farm in Dawsonville, Georgia
Five Things to Do Besides Get a Pumpkin at these Patches
The lure of a big, fat, fresh pumpkin may get you to a pumpkin farm in Georgia, but these five fall activities will keep you there long after the pumpkins have been put into the trunk.
In addition to pumpkins, a corn maze and huge jumpy pillow, Southern Belle Farm in McDonough also has several fire pits available for rent during the fall season. Bring some s’more fixings and enjoy a perfect fall evening under the stars. You’ll need to plan though; you must reserve one of the fire pits at least eight days ahead of your desired date, but the good news is you can request a campfire reservation online. Open Saturdays and Sundays Sept. 22- Nov. 4, 2018, and Fridays in October.
Wander Through the Corn
Several pumpkin patches in Georgia also have corn mazes. Copper Creek Farm Corn Maze & Pumpkin Patch in Calhoun, also is haunted at night. Visit for a wickedly fun nighttime journey into the twisted trails of the moonlit cornfield. Open Sept. 22 - Nov. 23, 2018.
At the Still Family Farm in Powder Springs, there are lots of kid-friendly games, but pretty much anyone can enjoy the pump duck races and the roly poly, a human-sized hamster ball. Open weekends in September and October.
Watch for Zombies
Opening Sept. 29, take a stroll through the Poppell Farms Pumpkin Patch & 10 Acre Maze in Odum. But be careful of zombies, the woods along the trail are full of them!
