If you’ve been to our pumpkin patch in the past then you know just how great the experience can be, but we’re striving to outdo ourselves in 2019! Bengtson’s Pumpkin Fest is proud to announce our grand opening on September 13! We’re pulling out all of the stops to ensure that it’s the best season we’ve ever had.
You probably associate fall food with Bengtson’s Farm and the good news is that you can get your fill of the best food in Chicago and the surrounding area with a quick trip to our pumpkin farm! No matter what you’re craving, you’re sure to enjoy something delicious and one-of-a-kind during your trip to Bengtson’s Farm this year.
In today’s post we’d like to highlight what you can expect from us so you can strategically plan out your day in order to have enough room to enjoy all of the good stuff. Here’s a look at the foods we’re offering in 2019 broken down conveniently into Eats and Treats.
Uncle Bub’s Award Winning BBQ
If the fact that Uncle Bub’s is an award winning BBQ joint isn’t enough to catch your attention then the menu surely will! Uncle Bub’s believes that you can’t rush good food. It’s that dedication to quality that’s always on display.
They offer homemade Mac and Cheese (that you can top with brisket or pulled pork nonetheless!), brats, burgers, chicken tenders, corn dogs, and bavarian pretzels. They even have desserts such as pumpkin bread pudding, caramel apple squares, and cookies. Plan your trip to Uncle Bub’s and treat yourself to some of the best food on the planet.
El Taco Cocina
Interested in some south of the border flavor? The good news is that you only have to head over El Taco Cocina (located near the fun slide) and its menu filled with amazing foods. Whether you’re craving tacos, nachos, quesadillas, or empanadas, El Taco Cocina will certainly not disappoint.
No matter what you get, be sure to add a side of chips and guacamole to your order because they are out of this world!
Local Sweet Corn
Roasted sweet corn is a must-have fall food. You can grab yours in the northwest corner of Bengtson Farms just west of the Animal Barn. It’s available on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, and Columbus Day. With roasted sweet corn that’s this good, need we say more?
Recently added to our pumpkin farm is everyone’s favorite fall food. We are speaking, of course, about churros! If you’re a fan of cinnamon and sugar on your churros (and let’s be honest, who isn’t a fan of that?) then you’re in luck. However, if you want something else that is appropriately fall in its flavor, then you absolutely need to try our pumpkin, apple or cajeta churros. They offer a unique take on a classic that we’re sure will become one of your new favorites!
Available throughout the farm, you can get your dose of sweet nostalgic goodness in the form of cotton candy. And yes, it’s just as good as you remember it to be!
If secret family recipes appeal to you, then you’re sure to love our kettle corn because it’s unlike anything else you’ve tasted! We make it by hand, the old fashioned way, each and every day to ensure that it’s fresh and delicious. Grab some to snack on as you explore our pumpkin patch and be sure to buy some to take home with you as well because it is addicting!
Fresh Apple Cider Donuts
And last, but certainly not least, we come to everyone’s favorite Bengtson Farms sweet treat. We are speaking, of course, about our fresh apple cider donuts. Are they the best in the Chicago area? You’d better believe it! Like the kettle corn, these apple cider donuts are addicting and that’s why we sell them in packs of a half dozen! You’ll have a hard time eating just one, but why would you want to do that anyway? Grab plenty to tide you over!
