Goebbert's Pumpkin Patch
Goebbert’s is a family owned pumpkin patch and farm market, celebrating its 65th year in 2013. We are located in Hampshire, Illinois. We treat our employees as family and love our customers. If you have not been to our farm, we would love for you to give us a try. In 1985, we purchased this 200 acre farm in Hampshire, Illinois. This location has a shorter season where we are open to the general public, but we are plenty busy throughout the entire year.
Goebbert’s Pumpkin Patch is a family run farm that has been in business since 1985. Our location is home to all the greenhouses necessary to produce the plants for Goebbert’s Farm & Garden Center, located in South Barrington, Illinois. We begin planting our fields with vegetables in May and June and are harvesting vegetables for our produce and fall season.
We’ve added a few new programs, including our Farmer For A Day educational school tour during our plant and harvest season as well as corporate events. We hope to see you visit the farm during one of our seasons very soon! Don’t forget, our Fall Festival begins on September 21st and runs through Halloween. Today, we employ 250 plus people during our peak seasons yet we are still a small family run farm.
Goebbert's is a fun experience for all ages. The corn maize and pumpkin patch was very neat. The farm was decorated very festive and the Pumpkin Eating Dinosaur was awesome. I had never seen this idea come to life until I arrived at Goebbert's. The animals were fun to look at, but feeding the giraffe was one of my favorite things to do. There are so many things to do on the farm, and their food is very good. The Apple Cider Donuts are delicious and a must have. Along with amazing things to do on the farm the employees are very welcoming and friendly. I would definitely go back to Goebbert's again.
I like Goebbert’s farm and I enjoy going, but I have only one problem with it that makes me very unhappy. Today I saw a worker push a camel because it was being noisy. They keep wild animals here in the smallest of cages with nothing but hay on the ground. This isn’t a zoo, this is a farm. At least at a zoo you know that each animal has its own unique enclosure that satisfies the need of that animal. But here there are wild cats, kangaroos, and many other exotic animals that don’t belong on a farm even if it’s just for a short while. I would highly appreciate it if Goebbert’s would stop bringing in these exotic animals and just stick to the usual barn animals that are well suited for the environment. If they value what is morally right and handle this problem, I would be a happy customer and would be able to have a positive experience at this farm.
Grandma,Grandson 6 & Granddaughter 18 Saturday 10/28 43 degrees & so breezy. We loved it. Clean, organized and laid out very well. Easy to take in each special activity. Extremely family friendly. Pricey @15$ each, but so many activities. About $1. Per activity if you look at their list of things to see and do. Extra charge for animal feed and riding ponies or camels. Food in the Cafe or lots choices of fudge & baked goods. Gift shop and they sell pumpkins, cornstalks, gourds and of course- Pick your own apples (buy their bag) in the orchard by taking a ride on the the wagon. Great fun. Great animals. Great Fall Memories.
This place is phenomenal!!! My husband remembered it from his childhood and I'm so glad he did. We went on a Tuesday so it wasn't packed with people and even though it wasn't super busy it was still really fun. The pumpkins are very fairly priced and it's so cool that they'll let you go out to the pumpkin patch and pick your own. We left with a few pumpkins for ourselves and some for my mom as well-my mom ans I like cool gnarly looking stems on our pumpkins so picking our own the way we wanted was so worth it. And the doughnuts are the best I've ever had. This place is our new yearly tradition and we will be back this year with my husband's little brother!!!
This pumpkin patch is a must if you have children!! My kids loved it, i absolutely loved it! I probably had more fun than them. I loved feeding the giraffe, seeing all the animals... they also had a dinosaur and my son loved it hahaha. We had the best time in 2015. I hope we can go there next year in 2018!!!
