My oldest, Clara at Clark's Elioak Farm.  It's one of our favorites!

My son has his birthday on Halloween, so the fall is very special for our family.  Every year we look forward to enjoying the brisk weather and experiencing all of the farm fun that Maryland has to offer.  Because of my little pumpkin birthday, we have been on a hunt for the top 10 pumpkin patches and fall farms in Maryland!  Because this year is weird, we will also be doing some different things to make it fun without a party. Definitely check before you go because of updated capacity rules.  This post uses commissioned links in order to offer free content, by reading beyond this point you are agreeing to our use of them, and our updated privacy policy found here.  I update this post every year, so that it stays current!

Here are a few of our family fall favorites:

1.Weber's Cider Mill Farm 

Whether you are looking for a hayride and pumpkin patch, or apple-cider and delicious baked goodies, Weber's has something for everyone.  The fall festivities are in full swing.

2. Clark's Elioak Farm

A family favorite with the Enchanted Forest, pumpkin patch, petting zoo, rides and fun for the whole family!

3. Queen Anne Farm

This farm in Mitchellville, Maryland has all the fall festivities!  A petting zoo, hayride, pumpkin patch (and pre- picked pumpkins), mums and other fall vegetation are available for purchase.

4. Butler's Orchard

This orchard, and fall family fun extravaganza, has an annual pumpkin festival.  With a variety of free activities like hayrides and slides, and others that have an additional fee (like pumpkin launching and Pick Your Own apples), you are sure to find something for everyone to enjoy.  Right now they even have pick your own pumpkins available, but check the website before you go.

5. Larriland Farm-

 A Howard County favorite for hayrides, a straw maze, apple picking, and pumpkin patching, you can also take a trip through the "boo barn", a not so scary Halloween venture.

6. TLV Tree Farm

TLV is our family's annual place to meet Santa and cut our own tree.  They also have a hayride to the pumpkin patch, and we love it!  With a variety of heirloom pumpkins, the kids really enjoy picking a unique one for the porch.  On the website, they have some special days listed like Teddy Bear Day, so be sure to check the website before you go.

7. Rodgers' Farm-  

Formerly North Run Farm, Rodgers' has hayrides, pumpkins (including pick your own), a mini maze, fresh apples, and cider.  This year they have even added some zombie paintball!

8. Baugher's-

 Baugher's is a fall wonderland.  They have a restaurant on site with pit beef and homemade ice cream, but they also have the standard pumpkin patch hayride.  A fun addition is another hayride to pick your own apples!

9. Falling Branch Beer

Just because I love farms, they also have hayrides, pumpkin patch, and a petting zoo. They also happen to have a beer hubby is going to be happy about that!  The beer garden activities look amazing.  It seems like they have transitioned to no ice cream and cheese, but please let me know!

10. Gaver Farm

Gaver Tree is a huge place with animal petting, pumpkin patch and hayride, food, and a ton of fun things for the kids to do (for a fee).  The cider slushies sound marvelous to me!

A lot of these places get very crowded on weekends and school days off.  My best advice is to go early in the season.  As always, please consult the websites (or call) before leaving for the day.  Did I miss any that you would add to this list?
