Halloween will be here before you can say “Trick-or-treat, smell my feet, give me something good to eat!” So don’t leave your little ghosts and goblins without a pumpkin to carve. Check out these fall-bulous farms where you can celebrate all things autumn.

The Farm at Swan’s Trail
7301 Rivershore Road, Snohomish
The Farm at Swan’s Trail features duck races, a giant corn kernel pen for rolling around in (think ball pit) and some very talented pigs that tell a slightly different version of the famous story we all love.

Know before you go
Visit early in the season to purchase corn stalks, gourds and hay bales and mark fall decorating off your list.

Dr. Maze’s Farm
15410 N.E.124th St., Redmond
No pumpkin is too funky for Dr. Maze! If you need one with extra warts or something in the white or baking variety, this is the place for you.

Know before you go
Consider visiting on a Friday and take part in the educational and fun Farm Tot Friday series.

Remlinger Farms
32610 N.E. 32nd St., Carnation
After all the pumpkin picking, you can fill up on some of the best food a patch has to offer (mini donuts, apple turnovers and burgers hot off the grill) or catch an act at Farm Theatre.

Know before you go
Remlinger only accepts good old-fashioned cash for the u-pick pumpkins.

13817 Shorts School Road, Snohomish
With everything from pumpkin-slinging to bunny-petting, Craven has it all. New this year? A spook-free 3-D Pumpkin Barn Adventure perfect for the younger ones.

Know before you go
Some activities are only on the weekends or cost extra, so check the website for details.

Trinity Tree Farm and Pumpkin Patch
14237 228th Ave. S.E., Issaquah
Hayrides are complimentary, and the train rides and unlimited jump time in the bouncy castle are well worth the nominal fee. Don’t forget to try your hand at the new mini pumpkin slingshot complete with a target range.

Know before you go
Trinity accepts only cash, so hit the ATM on your way over.
