Think that family fun comes to an end with the end of summer? Think again!

Fall in Traverse City means heaping piles of crunchy leaves, colorful pumpkin patches and apple orchards, hayrides, bonfires, corn mazes and steaming mugs of cider! Fun, right?

Jacob’s Corn Maze is a world-class 10 acre Corn Maze is unlike any other in Northern Michigan. Jacob’s Secret Agent Adventure is an exciting and fully interactive farm experience that will captivate and entertain your family for hours with its twists and turns.

Hoxie’s Farm Market showcases autumn splendor at its best! Stock up on apples, pumpkins, squash, and delicious baked goods. Take a wagon ride to pick the perfect pumpkin, find your way through the corn maze, and finish off the adventure with playtime and snacks in the big red barn.  

Gallagher’s Farm Market, just west of Traverse City, features a huge variety of fresh fruit and vegetables in season including strawberries, cherries, raspberries, blueberries, apricots, peaches, blackberries & apples.  Homemade baked goods, jam and jellies, local wines (for mom and dad!), cherry products, U-pick cherries, and a petting farm add to the autumn fun.  Visit in the fall for a corn maze, cider, pumpkins and donuts. Open June - October.
