The leaves are turning and there’s a chill in the air; all signs point to the fall season and hayrides. Check out our list below before you take your family on the perfect fall hayride.

Maugeri Farms

1991 Oldmans Creek Road
Woolwich, NJ

Maugeri Farms is offering their super-popular hayrides every single weekend in October. There’s also a pumpkin patch, a pumpkin decorating station, the “Tiny Tots Treasure Hunt,” and a hay maze. Oh, and don’t forget to check out the Farm Market for decorations and delicious fall treats, too!

Johnson’s Corner Farm

133 Church Road
Medford, NJ 08055

Johnson’s Corner Farm has frequent hayrides for your convenience – every hour during the week (11 a.m. – 5 p.m.), and every half hour on weekends (10 a.m. – 5 p.m.). Whether you’re headed out just for the ride, or to pick pumpkins or a little produce – you can take your pick at Johnson’s Corner Farm. And, if you work up an appetite in the cool fall air, you can always grab a warm bag of their famous cider donuts. Yum!

Indian Acres Tree Farm

111 Tuckerton Road
Medford, NJ

In addition to their famed haunted attractions, Indian Acres also offers wagon rides to and from their pumpkin patch. And once you’re done picking, there are barrel train rides, a zip line, a bouncy playground, the giant pillow bounce and much more fun to be had.

Highland Orchards

1000 Marshallton-Thorndale Road
West Chester, PA 19380

It’s time for apples and pumpkins at Highland Orchards, which means it’s time for hayrides, too! From noon to 5 p.m. on weekends through the end of October, hayrides and more will be available for all your little pumpkins. And on weekends, there’s the SilveryMoon Hayride, operating Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays in September and October. Follow your ride up with a campfire and s’mores — just remember to BYOM (bring your own marshmallows)!

Duffields Farm Market

Greentree & Chapel Hts Road
Sewell, NJ

From August through October, Sewell’s Duffields offers hayrides to either the apple orchard or the pumpkin patch. Stop by the bakery or deli once you’ve worked up an appetite and enjoy a delicious treat, too.

Milky Way Farm

521 E. Uwchlan Ave. (Rte.113)
Chester Springs, PA 19425

Milky Way Farm may be best known for its creamery, but more than 12,000 people visit on weekends in October for free hayrides that run continuously to the pumpkin patch. And, once you have picked out a boo-licious pumpkin, you can always take a ride back to the creamery to indulge in their moo-licious ice cream. There’s no admission to the farm, and parking is free as well.

Springdale Farms

1638 South Springdale Road
Cherry Hill, NJ

Cherry Hill’s last working farm has been in operation for more than 60 years and offers hayrides and pumpkin picking from Sept. 30 through October. And, on Sept. 28 & 29, check out the Pumpkin Palooza, an all-day event at two South Jersey staples, Springdale and the nearby Discovery Museum. Springdale Farms will offer Farmer Tom’s Hayride, the corn maze, and Paint-A-Pumpkin, and the Discovery Museum will have pony rides (12 p.m. – 4 p.m.), a moon bounce and fall crafts.
