Your family will love hitching a ride on these Atlanta hayrides that’ll take you past pumpkin patches, waterfalls, and covered bridges
No bucket list of fall family fun is complete without three things—finding that just-right pumpkin to carve, picking your own apples at a nearby orchard, and hitching a hayride around a farm. So, grab your dungarees, and pull on those boots because you and the kids have a wagon ride (and so much more) waiting for you at these farms this fall.

Uncle Shucks Corn Maze & Pumpkin Patch
While there's lots to love about this pumpkin patch in Dawsonville, kids will agree the wagon ride around the farm is the best way to see it all. Load into the wagon and pull up the nearest hay bale, because it's time to sit back and relax as you get a tour around the farm. See if you can spot the pumpkin patch, corn maze, and tire mountain as you make your way around the property. When you're done, you'll have plenty of time to jump on the bouncy pillow, navigate the kiddy maze (trust us, they'll love it), and maybe even get your face painted before calling it a day.

Berry Patch Farms
Just a short drive to Woodstock, you’ll find a fun and friendly place for the kiddos to catch a (hay) ride. You’ll take a short tractor pulled hayride out to a field where you’ll find an enormous section of pumpkins, gourds, and plenty of photo ops. Once you make your way back to the main area, we have a feeling the kids will find the playground, farm animals, and boiled peanuts, popcorn, and homemade fried pies without too much trouble. Come for the hayride, stay for the fun.

Burt's Pumpkin Farm
The hay ride at Burt's travels two miles around the pumpkin patch and through the woods. Wagons are filled with wheat straw and are pulled by a big farm tractor. You will see their famous pumpkins, Autumn and Gordy, along the way and also go through a covered bridge filled with singing pumpkins. At the end of the ride you will get a glimpse of Amicalola Falls, the highest waterfall east of the Mississippi River.

Sleepy Hollow Farm
The name Sleepy Hallow conjures up images of hayrides, Halloween, and crisp fall nights, but this Sleepy Hallow got its start thirty years ago as a family-owned Christmas tree farm. What started as a Christmas tradition has grown into a fall tradition for families throughout the Atlanta area. Aside from the main attraction—the tractor ride—kiddos will love the corn maze, a pumpkin patch, and farm animal feeding.

The Buford Corn Maze
As the name suggest, there is much more to do here than just the hayride. Like, maybe a corn maze? But the hayride really is a highlight. Known as Atlanta's longest hayride, not only is it a long leisurely ride into the woods, but the drivers are super friendly and entertaining too. After the hayride, prepare yourself, because there is a lot to do. Older kiddos may want to do the corn maze. Just know it’s a lot of walking so if you’re not up for carrying your little one through the corn, opt for the playground or bounce house, which are free with admission. Look for pony rides, face painting, and karaoke too.
4470 Bennett Rd.
Just north of Atlanta in Milton, you’ll find Scottsdale Farms, a 55-acre family owned Garden Center and Cafe. You'll find a Family Fun Field, complete with a corn maze and hayride for all ages, lawn games, and a Sunflower Field. They also have a plethora of pumpkins, gourds, and squashes in all varieties if you need to stock up.
