Best Fall Field Trips in Arizona

Best Fall Field Trips
Pumpkin patches, corn mazes and apple picking offer the best of fall field trips in Arizona.

Vertuccio Farms in Mesa offers a great group rate of $5 per person if you schedule a group of at least 20 ahead of time. They have a corn maze just for kids, a pumpkin patch and a train ride too.

There is no need to drive far for a Pumpkin Patch; Talmachoff Farms offers great pumpkin patch fun including a petting zoo, pumpkin patch, corn maze and train ride all at Bethany Home and 75th Avenue. This farm is a little more expensive at $15 but if you are close you will probably make it up in the gas savings.

Joe's Farm Grill in Gilbert is an organic farm with a restaurant on site offering field trips and sustainable produce. The restaurant was featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.

Apple Annie’s Orchard offers a huge ‘one of a kind’ corn maze, pumpkin patch and hayrides for a very reasonable price of $7 for adults and $5 for children; children 2 and under are free and they offer a combo hayride/corn maze ticket for just $9.

Mother Nature’s Farm at 16th Street and Baseline Road offers a pumpkin patch, hayrides and child size corn maze all under $7.

For a complete list of pumpkin patches throughout Arizona go to Pumpkin Patches and More.

How I became Considering frugal

Fueled by the growing list of pollution related allergies my family suffered from each day and inspired by my 97 year old grandmother who could recycle ANYTHING before recycling was cool, back in 2011, I decided (in the spirit of the Julie/Julia Project...) to embark on a journey to see just how much one family could do to change our planet. I did not consult any other parties before I launched this idea. Thankfully my husband, daughter and son are usually my biggest supporters. Here is the catch; as I am normally very thrifty (you can note from early blog posts), I was looking for ways that I could reduce our carbon footprint and make socially responsible purchases without increasing our spending. Mmmmmm. I did succeed in changing our habits a bit and finding ways to reduce our footprint. There were lots of fun epic fails alone the way too! But the biggest change we have made over the course of the last six years, was to move from the mega city of Phoenix to Wyoming where we are about to take an even bigger step and move out on a dirt road in the country where we can expand our hobby bees and more! You can read my full bio on my About Me page.
