We love fall. Don’t you? From apple picking to pumpkin patches, this season is filled with fun for the family. And Branson is within driving distance of all of it. Below are a few of the best pumpkin patches near Branson.

And if you want to bring a little bit of the pumpkin experience home, we highly recommend picking a few pumpkins {big or small} then coming home to make pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. And in case you don’t already have the perfect recipe, we have you covered. This is our family secret recipe.Fun fact, the brown sugar makes all the difference in the world! I actually use 1/4 cup dark brown & 1/4 cup light brown, but any type of brown sugar will work!
