Our Pet Friendly Pumpkin Patch Adventure

Delia and Chewy's Pumpkin Patch and Corn Maze Adventure

Delia and Chewy joined their friends on a visit to Meert Tree Farm, a pet friendly pumpkin patch and corn maze just outside of St. Louis. Delia loves it there. She had her first pumpkin patch and corn maze adventure there a few years ago. This year, Chewy joined her for his first time. They were eager to pick out a pumpkin AND to earn their Corn Maze and Hay Ride badges for PupScouts!

We were happy that our friends could join us. Delia and Chewy adore them and they were the perfect partners for a day of fun in the pumpkin patch.

First, a hayride…

We took a hayride down a country road to the pumpkin fields and corn maze. Delia and Chewy were both content hanging with their buddies.


Could these two be any more adorable together?

These two…so cute. Delia was a happy pup!


Freddy lives on the farm. He rode along on the hay ride with us. He’s an adorably gracious host.

The Pumpkin Patch!

When we made it to the pumpkin fields, they took off! Everybody was excited to find the perfect pumpkin for them.

The boys took their time. Pumpkin picking can’t be rushed.


It is so hard to decide…


Chewy had a hard time deciding…


Delia knew which one was hers as soon as she saw it.

Delia helped her friend examine her pumpkin to make sure it was exactly the one she wanted.

On to the corn maze…

After everyone found the pumpkins they wanted, we headed to the corn maze. Delia is a corn maze pro, but this was Chewy’s first time, so he was really excited.

We might have gotten a little lost in the maze, and made a few horror movie jokes, but we made it out and everyone had fun!


We had a lot of fun at the farm with our friends. If you have a pet friendly pumpkin patch in your area, you should check it out. It makes for a fun fall activity to do with your dogs. I plan to make it an annual tradition for Delia and Chewy.

Have you visited a pumpkin patch with your pets, or do you have any fall traditions you do with your pets? We’d love to hear about them!


  1. This is so cute and I love to see pumpkin patches that allow dogs. I never understand why not, especially in the corn maze. Do they think the dogs will do them better than we do?

  2. Such a beautiful family, and gorgeous pictures. I love reading about dog friendly places, since everything is more fun when dogs are around.

  3. What a great pumpkin patch, I love that it is dog-friendly. Your pictures are adorable, thanks for sharing, it looks like you had a perfect day!

  4. What a fun time! Love all the happy pics!

  5. That looks like a lot of fun and the costumes are adorable too.

  6. Absolutely adorable. These pictures so capture the beauty of fall and the magical bond between kids and dogs. Thanks for the smiles.

      Thank you for stopping by and for the kind words! The kids and dogs were too cute. They were seriously like human/canine versions of one another.

  7. Looks like the kids and dogs had such a ball of a time. Loved the pictures and freddy truly looked happy to have you guys visit the pumpkin patch

  8. How much fun to go to the pumpkin patch to pick out your pumpkins.

    • Heartprints Pets says

      They had a lot of fun. Too bad their mom (me) ruined the pumpkin when she was carving it.They got to try some of the raw pumpkin, so they were OK with it.

  9. What a wonderful adventure, thanks for sharing it with us! Adorable photos & great pumpkin picking. I so wish we had a dog friendly hay ride or corn maze neat us.

  10. I wish there was one close to us as I would love to do something like this with Layla, great pictures

    • Heartprints Pets says

      Thank you, Ruth! We’re lucky that it is just down the road from us. One of our doggie daycare friends’ family has owned the farm for years.

  11. This looks like it was a lot of fun! The photos are adorable. It is great that the dogs were able to come along and take part in the festivities. 🙂

  12. This is one of our favorite activities! We typically take one or two of our dogs and the maze is fun but typically very muddy in Oregon. The pics of those two kids and the dogs are great – what FUN you all had!

    • Heartprints Pets says

      Thank you! We did have a great time. Delia loves running through the maze. Thankfully, we didn’t have mud!

  13. These are some really cute pictures with the kids 🙂 it looks like y’all had a great time!

  14. What a wonderful way to spend a fall day! These photos made me smile.

  15. We went a few years ago. I let Mr. N lead in the corn maze and he found the way out pretty quickly!

  16. What an adorable family! It looks like you had a blast.

  17. What a lovely day out. So glad you had fun

  18. This looks fantastic and something even dogs can enjoy.

  19. Look at those sweet babies–all of them! ♥ What a wonderful way to spend a fall day! I love the pumpkin patch, but ours doesn’t accept dogs. BOO!

  20. It is always amazing finding dog friendly places like this! The whole family gets to spend time together making memories!!! 🙂
