With so many rides and events going on at Bengtson’s Pumpkin Fest, you’re bound to grow hungry. Most likely, your entire family includes a variety different preferences as far as food goes, and you may even have a painfully picky eater in the bunch. You can rest easy because we have a variety of different foods available at our pumpkin patch near Chicago, so no one in your family will go hungry. Check out our available foods at our pumpkin farm:
ROGUE Curbside Kitchen
Any adults in the family might enjoy this eating establishment on our grounds run by the Eckert family, who catered food for decades. Setting out to make quality food that is also convenient, they serve a variety of different gourmet sandwiches and hamburgers. For those of you who like spicier food, you might enjoy “The Fearless,” which includes a crispy chicken breast covered in buffalo sauce, lettuce, tomato, blue cheese crumbles and served on a savory French roll.
The Donut Shack
Every day, Bengtson’s Pumpkin Fest creates fresh batches of sweet, delicious apple cider donuts. You may find it extremely difficult to eat just one, so order a dozen donuts at the Donut Shack, located near the Fun Slide.
El Taco Cocina
There’s never a bad time to eat Mexican food, and you’ll have no trouble getting your fix at El Taco Cocina. Started by culinary school graduate Anna Carmine, this food truck features all your favorite Mexican cuisine, including tacos, nachos and quesadillas. For a little South American flair, you could even try their beef empanadas.
What festival is complete without cotton candy stands? Indulge in this fluffy treat as you walk the grounds, savoring this sweet sugar cloud.
All that running around might wear you out, so you could get your sugar fix by indulging in one of our funnel cakes. Sprinkled with powdered sugar, these cakes can come with an apple or cherry topping and Coca-Cola products. Are you not sure where to find the funnel cakes? Head just west of the goat house and you’ll find the funnel cakes directly behind the cotton candy building.
Toasty Cheese Food Truck
Are you looking for the ultimate grilled cheese sandwich, one that’s perfectly gooey on the inside with just the right amount of crispiness on the outside? Try the Toasty Cheese Food Truck. What goes better with grilled cheese then bacon? Try the Great Dane, which features a blend of American and cheddar cheeses with Applewood smoked bacon on a panini.
The Food Barn
Perfect for families, The Food Barn features your tried-and-true classics, such as all beef hot dogs, chili, kettle corn, chips, cotton candy and apple cider donuts. Available beverages include hot apple cider, soda, pumpkin-spiced cappuccinos, hot chocolate and water.
Wooden Paddle Pizza
Made in a wood-burning oven, the artisan pizzas at this joint are to-die-for. Using only locally-sourced kiln-dried ash wood as fuel, the pizza oven burns higher than 800 degrees, producing the perfect blend of crispiness and chewiness in your pizza crust. This place also serves fried mozzarella, salads and gelato for those who crave a little more than just pizza.
Uncle Bub’s Award Winning BBQ
Are you looking for some down-home cooking? Look no further, because Uncle Bub has you covered. The savory smoked meats are dry rubbed with secret ingredients and slow cooked to perfection in the hardwood smoker. To polish off the BBQ brisket, pulled pork, ribs or pulled chicken, Uncle Bob includes an award-winning sauce. You can even finish this plate with one of their delicious desserts.
You simply cannot leave our pumpkin patch without trying our famous kettle corn! At Bengtson’s, we use a secret recipe to create the perfect blend of sweet and savory flavors in this addictive treat. Take a bag home with you to enjoy long after your pumpkin farm trip is over.
