Austin Fall Festival and Pumpkin Patch

We've gone Cashless!

Credit, Debit, and Mobile only. Find out more here.

The Fall Festival and Pumpkin Patch at Barton Hill Farms is the perfect way to spend a nice autumn day in Central Texas. Our picturesque family-owned farm just outside of Austin lets you experience life on the farm — even if it’s just for the day.

Take fall photos with the family under the cottonwood trees. Pick your very own pumpkins from our beautiful pumpkin patch. Get lost (and then found again) in our 3.5 acre corn maze. Then take a break, relax on a swing beneath a shady tree, and let the Colorado River wash your cares away.

A day on the farm will soon become part of your family’s annual fall traditions.

The Pumpkin Patch

Pick the perfect pumpkin at our scenic pumpkin patch in the Texas countryside. Then take it home to carve into the best jack o’lantern on the block. We’ll also have smaller sweet pumpkins, ready to be made into a pie, veggie roast, or delicious fall soup.

The Corn Maze

Get lost in Austin’s coolest corn maze!  Our corn maze is one of the major attractions at our annual Fall Festival. Every year, we come up with a fun new theme and a completely different maze design. Clues throughout the maze will help you and the little ones navigate your way through every twist and turn.  Expect the maze to take about 30 to 45 minutes to solve (although you can exit early if necessary)!
