Using my list of Indiana Pumpkin Patches, hubs and I headed out with kids in tow to explore!

little Indiana headed back to Lowell, Indiana to check out Norm’s Pumpkin Patch Farm.

Following the signs, we found Norm’s Pumpkin Patch easily enough. Pulling in, you’ll drive past the pumpkins and make your way to the back of the farm to park.

Before you head over to the pumpkins, you should know that the corn maze is located behind the parking lot. Ask for directions–Kid #1 thought this was the coolest thing ever!

It’s a big one! Norm’s pumpkin patch boasts a four acre corn maze. Four acres!

What’s a Pumpkin Patch Without The Pumpkins?

Norm’s Pumpkin Patch Farm has such a neat story. More than twenty years ago, Norm grew a few pumpkins and decided to share with the neighbors.

A neighbor loaned him a small tractor so that one neighborhood family at a time, he could give them a hay ride and a chance to pick out their own pumpkin!

As things often do, it took off! Norm expanded his operation to reach out to the community at large with reasonably priced fresh pumpkins.

Today, Norm supplies the neighborhood and people from miles around with a variety of pumpkins and a few fun attractions.

Haunted Hay Ride

During the week, this pumpkin patch in Indiana is very low-key.

Kids can play at the play area, check out the adorable goats and donkeys, and maybe even go for a barrel ride.

A lawnmower with carts in tow, this ride is a fast zigzag back over to a green space near the parking area. Kid #1 didn’t stop grinning! Some parents, however, may want to sit this bumpy ride out–although hubs was a fan.

But the weekend is when Norm’s really comes alive. With a haunted hay ride, regular hay ride, food, and a visiting magician, picking out a pumpkin becomes an event instead of something you just do.

Goats, Pumpkins, Hay Ride–Oh My!

Bypass those boring pumpkins at the big box shops–who knows how long they sat there? Instead, find the small Indiana town pumpkin patch, like Norm’s, closest to you. Make it a fun event that you’ll look forward to year after year!
