My family certainly does! Every Fall, we LIVE at all of the local pumpkin patches! Here is a little list of our favorites and why :)
This little gem is open on weekends in the fall season and they have everything! They have corn and sunflower mazes, u-pick pumpkins (on the vine!), the BEST kids' play area (including hay slides, peddle cars, water wars, houses, and more!), some of the best cider (and omg the donuts!!) you'll ever have, and all of the normal things at a good pumpkin patch! It does cost (the largest package price I saw was $12/person) but you don't have to get the all inclusive wrist band! Totally worth it! Pack a lunch and make a day of it!

This is another little secret of ours from the last 6+ years, but they've slowly gained some more recognition for their awesomeness (it's a word... sometimes). For just $7/person (2 and under are free), you get a hay ride through the horses, access to the little pumpkin patch to get a complementary small pie pumpkin (including the baby! what?!), a large kid's play area (SO much to climb!!), you can pain the pumpkins there!, goats to feed, pony rides (an additional fee per person), chickens running around, pizza you can buy.. and it's a real Farm Feel! We have already gone twice this year, even if they're only open on weekends lol. They're pretty great! We usually make an afternoon of it :)

Hunt Club Farm:
Everyone who lives in HR has heard the Hunt Club Farm commercials on the radio, so it's not a "hidden gem," but they're pretty great! On weekends in October, they offer a Harvest Festival! Little carnival rides, petting farm, loads of vendors (shout-out to a few awesome ones I know that frequent them! woo!), pony rides for an additional fee, free hay ride.. and I didn't see a ticket that's more than $9/person! It *does* get a bit crowded, but it's definitely a must-see with the kids! The staff are super friendly and don't miss their awesome Haunted Hay Ride! Not exactly kid-friendly, but hello date night!

Mount Pleasant Farms:
We usually love coming here for the u-pick peaches in the summer, but their pumpkin patch is AMAZING! No entrance fee is more than $10/person (children are cheaper) and their play area is pretty awesome! The pumpkins aren't on the vine, but you do get to pick them from a great selection, a hay ride, lots of stuff going on at all times, and.. the best part.. not as crowded as most of the farms we go to lol. We are a bit on the hermit side and prefer not bumping elbows, so this farm is pretty high on the spectacular-scale for us!

Hickory Ridge Farm:
Oh this farm.. our family frequents here for our strawberry-picking every single spring, and we have gone here 3 years now with our co-op for our field trips! They're SO child-friendly, the pumpkins you pick off of the vine, the play area is super sweet, there's goats (we love goats lol) and chickens to amuse yourself with, a hay ride, a train ride, bounce house, and entrance is only $13/person! I want to shout-out that their pumpkin bread is AMAZING! Worth it!
