In case you haven't heard, Hogan Farms -- located at 8900 E. County Road 1000 North, Brownsburg, Indiana -- is an incredible fall destination that you'll want to visit this season. It offers homegrown pumpkins, hayrides, a corn maze, good eats, a petting zoo and a kids zone.
Opening day is Sept. 25, 2021, so mark your calendars!
Here are the details you will need to know before you go:
Hogan Farms offers some of the finest pumpkins around. Choose from those that have been picked and ready for the taking, or enjoy the added fun of picking your own from the patch.
You're sure to find the perfect pumpkin. They have every size, and the pumpkins are priced by size.
I was surprised last year by all the varieties they grow there. I found, of course, the traditional orange in all shapes and sizes. But they also had the white pumpkins and even a variety of yellow pumpkins that were quite popular.
They also have crates full of various ghords and other options that make great accent pieces for your fall display at home.
It wouldn't truly be fall in Indiana without a corn maze, right? Well, this year Hogan Farms decided to go with an Indianapolis Colts football theme.
Find your way through their puzzle by picking up a map and trivia to help guide you. The maze will remain open Tuesday-Sunday through Oct. 31.
What truly makes this maze unique is that it is always in two halves separated by a drainage ditch that runs between the two fields. While that might sound like a bad thing as it breaks up the maze into two, it does provide a natural stopping point if your family or group gets tired or cranky and doesn't want to finish the entire maze.
They recommend wearing boots, long pants, and long sleeves, so be ready for an adventure!
It costs $8 per person to enter.
Hay Rides & Farmers Market
When you aren't in the corn maze, two other activities that have become traditions at Hogan Farms will provide fun and food.
Hogan Farms' hay rides have evolved over the years, but this classic fall activity still remains. The farm will offer hay rides Fridays through Sundays.
The first ride leaves at 11 a.m., the last call is at 5:30 p.m. and the cost is $5 a person. Per health department requirements, visitors must wear facial coverings to ride.
While it has not been around quite as long as the signature hay rides, Hogan Farms' third annual farmer's market has quickly become popular.
Vendors from all over Indiana will set up shop every Saturday and Sunday in October, with live music and food trucks on the weekends as well. Local honey, food, baked goods, candles and handmade soaps and signs will be available!
Who doesn't love a good petting zoo? Ponies, ewes and bunnies - oh my! The petting zoo opens every Saturday and Sunday during the season and costs $5 a person, which also includes a pass for the Kid Zone.
You'll also enjoy learning about farm animals from the experts on site. A facial covering is required inside the petting zoo tent.
So, head on out to Hogan Farms, 8900 E. County Road 1000 North, Brownsburg, to truly experience fall fun in Indiana at an affordable cost.
This is the prime opportunity to gather your family, hunt for that perfect pumpkin, take some silly selfies on a hayride, find your way through a corn maze and get up close and personal with some farm animals at the petting zoo.
