Each year we hit up a local pumpkin patch in the area and for as long as I remember, we’ve been heading to Leeds Farm in Delaware County, just outside of Columbus, OH. Leeds Farm has a little bit of everything for everyone and we’ve tried other Columbus Ohio Pumpkin Patches, but we always find our way back to Leeds. We just visited Leeds Farm this past week, earlier than we normally go, but the minute we told the kids we were heading for a visit (my kids are almost ten and five) they both were super excited. I love that Leeds Farm has enough exciting things to do to still get my ten year old amped up, keep my five year old entertained, and even my one year old niece tagged along with my brother and sister in law and had a great time. We made it a whole family day, my parents joining us along for the visit, and the whole family spent a beautiful fall day at Leeds for 4+ hours (my kids wanted to stay longer!). Today I want to share why we love Leeds Farm so much, why it ranks as one of the top pumpkin farms in Ohio and all the things Leeds has to offer in case you were on the fence about which pumpkin patch in Delaware to visit this year!
Where is Leeds Farm located?
Leeds Farm is located at 8738 Marysville Road, Ostrander, OH. It’s about 20 minutes northwest of Downtown Delaware, Ohio. Leeds Farm is open from September 21st-October 27th, 2019 (I’ll do my best to update this info annually) on Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.. Leeds is open one Friday each season and in the past, this was the day that we went because the crowds were smaller than a normal weekend crowd. I should say that if you can’t do that Friday in October, I’d recommend visiting in September when they first open, as crowds are much smaller and the lines are non-existent.
Best of Columbus, OH Pumpkin Patches
We’ve been to a number of pumpkin patches and pumpkin farms in Central Ohio and Leeds forever wins our hearts. A Leeds Farm birthday party would be so much fun and they have pavilions available for rental–we hope to do that someday for our son. Leeds Farm Autism Day is also a super special day that Leeds puts on at the start of the season for families with children on the spectrum. But truthfully, we love Leeds because it’s HUGE…it’s clean and it’s fun for all ages.
Leeds Farm Activities
The adults can enjoy the place just as much as the kiddos can and it definitely brings out your inner youth. We must have gone down those slides with the kids a dozen times last weekend! Leeds Farm offers the following activities (from their website):
My kids love the Straw Barn, the Pedal Carts, the Zip lines, the Pumpkin Jump, the Racer Slides, the Corn Box and of course, the delicious food!!
Leeds Farm Food and Treats
The North Barn has a huge variety of food options available. I personally suggest not leaving Leeds without trying their fresh Peach Pie, an Apple Cider Slushie, and a pumpkin donut or Pumpkin cookies. They also have non-sweet options like soft pretzels, chili, and hot dogs too in case you want something more savory.
*Note: Leeds Farm does take debit/credit cards, so cash isn’t required for food. But for extra paid options like the Big Zipline, you will need cash (it’s $5 per person).
By the animal barns and pumpkins, you most certainly do not want to miss out on Hand Popped Kettle Corn, sold by the bag. It’s delicious and something we never leave without grabbing a bag to share!!
Pumpkin Patch Delaware Ohio
While Leeds Farm is not a true “pumpkin patch” in the sense that you go out in a field and pull your pumpkin off a vine, Leeds does offer an IMPRESSIVE variety of pumpkins, gourds, and pie making pumpkins. If you like to decorate with pumpkins or are just picking out a pumpkin for carving, you’ll have plenty of quality, large pumpkins to choose from! We typically go home with a few big ones to carve with our kiddos.
Leeds Farm Review
Overall, you seriously cannot bypass visiting Leeds Farm at least once to see for yourself why it stands out above all the rest. Pick a beautiful fall day and head out to Leeds for some family fun. Plan on getting lunch and snacks there, be sure to do the Big Zipline, and make plenty of time to slide the slides and pick the perfect pumpkin. We’ve been coming to Leeds since my oldest was a baby and hasn’t gotten old yet. We’ve made it our family tradition and I’m certain that your family will come to love it like we do.
Head out to Leeds Farm ASAP before you miss out this fall!
*Special thanks to Leeds for hosting our family for our visit this year. All thoughts and opinions are still my own.
