Are you at home with your little ones on weekdays? Whether you’re a stay-at-home parent or you offer babysitting services, what better way to spend some time than by visiting our pumpkin patch? Bengtson Farm is family-owned and operated and that means that we know how much value there is in having something to do with the kids on any given day.
With fall just around the corner, why not take the opportunity to get outside and have some fun rather than hanging around inside all day? In today’s post, we’ll highlight a few of the reasons to swing by one of the best pumpkin farms in the Chicago area. We’re just a 40 minute drive away from the city and the trip is nice and relaxing. If you’ve been looking for something to do with the kids and you’re planning for what to do this fall, keep reading to learn more!
Why Visit Bengtson’s?
Our Farm is Stroller Friendly
First and foremost, we’d like to say that our farm is stroller friendly. That means that if you have little ones who might get tuckered out easily, you can just strap them into the stroller and continue on. Our farm is mostly paved, but there are a few gravel paths strewn throughout the area, so keep that in mind. For the most part, however, you can explore to your heart’s content!
We even offer a free selfie both so you and your kids can snap a picture or two to remember your trip by. There are a number of attractions to choose from at our pumpkin patch and the good news is that our newest addition, the Barnyard Dance Cow Coaster, is a smooth and easy ride on spinning cows, making it ideal for kids of all ages. Perhaps your child would enjoy riding an actual animal. If that’s the case, head on over to the pony ride area, where children up to 80 pounds can go for a ride.
At the end of the day, there is plenty of fun to be had at Bengtson’s Pumpkin Farm, so do some exploring with your kids, because you’re sure to find a lot to love.
Get the Lowest Admission Price Without a Coupon
Another huge perk of visiting us on a weekday is that you’ll receive discounted admission without the need for a coupon. What that means is that you don’t have to keep track of a piece of paper while you’re wrangling the kids on your way out here, and that’s a win/win no matter how you look at it!
At Bengtson’s, we strive to make your visit to our pumpkin farm as easy and enjoyable as possible. After all, what fun is it when you’re trying to juggle everything and can’t get in the mood to enjoy your experience? Instead, simply head on over and you’ll get the lowest admission price without the need for a coupon.
That means that you can experience the fun of our petting zoo which has everything from llamas to kangaroos. You can also head to the tractor pulled hayrack ride, get a thrill with the pumpkin chucker, or go on a train ride.
Enjoy Great Food
All of this fun will no doubt mean that you and your little ones will work up quite the appetite, and the good news is that there are plenty of eats and treats to enjoy! In the mood for a bit of barbecue? Head on over to Uncle Bub’s (a winner of the Chicago Ribfest) to enjoy some truly amazing food.
We also offer wooden paddle pizza, gourmet tacos, and roasted sweet corn. If you’re in the mood for something sweet, we have you covered there as well thanks to our funnel cakes, cotton candy, and perhaps most importantly, the fresh apple cider donuts. The latter are a favorite of anyone who sets foot in our pumpkin patch and they’re even available in 6 packs if you’d like to take some home with you.
