Fall Fun in Baltimore

Farms and Orchards in the Baltimore Area

By

These Baltimore-area farms have fall fun for both kids and adults. Find corn mazes, pumpkin patches, petting zoos, hayrides, apple picking, Halloween activities and more. In the summer many of these are pick-your-own farms for berries, fruit and veggies. Some have PYO apples in the fall.

Most are only open on weekends. Call for hours, admission and pick-your-own and farm produce availability. While some close up after Halloween many are open all year. Shop for produce, baked goods and even fresh turkeys for your Thanksgiving or holiday dinner. And some have cut-your-own Christmas trees.
