For many, preparing for Halloween is serious business. This means readying your costumes, buying the most delicious candy for the kids in the neighborhood, and of course carving the perfect jack-o-lantern. But with Oct. 31 less than a week away, you may be falling behind on your spooky to-do list.

Mulberry Orchard takes the cake — or should we say takes the pumpkin pie — as the No. 1 pumpkin patch in Kentucky. Beyond its Pick Your Own pumpkins, the Shelbyville-based farm boasts an impressive list of amusement, including a petting zoo, corn maze, and wagon rides.
Just Piddlin’ Farm in Woodburn and Evan’s Orchard in Georgetown are tied for the second-best pumpkin patches in Kentucky. Like Mulberry Orchard, both locations feature an on-site corn maze.
Lexington residents in particular may be drawn to Evan’s Orchard, as it's only about a 30-minute drive from the city. Meanwhile, the spot on our list closest to Louisville is Shady Lane Farms, also about a 30-minute drive away. Shady Lane Farms ranked No. 4 on our list of Kentucky’s best pumpkin patches.
Not only are all of the patches on our list great options for picking up a pumpkin to carve — they’re a sure bet to offer plenty of “agritainment” for the whole family.
