My favorite holiday is Halloween so I needed to get something on this blog about it. There are many pumpkin farms in Northern IL and although I have a very long list, I decided just to mention those located in the southwest suburbs since that is where I work. Benstons's Pumpkin Farm located at 13341 W. 151st St., Homer Glen, IL 60491. The phone number is 708-301-3276. Hours are 7 days a week from 10:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m. and free parking is offered.
There is much more than pumpkins at this farm so give yourself time to enjoy all of the offerings which include a petting zoo, pig races, the Haunted Fun Barn, pony and train rides, cow milking and more! You can get a coupon and find out more on Bengston's web site which is located here. Be sure to visit one of the most popular areas of Homer Glen before the big day. Have fun!
Children's Farm Pick-Your-Own-Pumpkin
Another local place that offers more than just pumpkins is The Children's Farm in Palos Park. It is located just north of 131st St. on Southwest Highway. The Children's Farm Pumpkin Patch is open every day in October from 3:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. on weekdays and from 10:00 a.m. - 4 p.m. on the weekends. Their phone number is 708-361-3650. Their web site isn't as fun as Benston's but if you're interested in going here there is more information on the site which is here.
Konow's Corn Maze in Homer Glen
Konow's Corn Maze in Homer Glen, IL is another fun place to visit during the Halloween season. Like the other places mentioned above, Konow's Corn Maze offers a lot of different activities. It is located at 16849 S. Cedar Rd., Homer Glen IL 60491. The phone number is 708-301-8845. Find the website here.
These fun venues can be visited at other times of the year, not just Halloween.
