Pumpkin Picking, Where to Visit

Pumpkin season is officially here, and one of the most fun activities for all ages is going to the pumpkin patch!  Luckily we have several amazing patches within driving distances from us.  So here are our top 5 pumpkin patches this year!

Carrigan FarmsReservations are required for pumpkin picking.   Come pick your own pumpkin, right off the vine! Carrigan Farms’ pumpkin patches are open the entire month of October with shuttles back and forth to the patch every day. The cost is $12.00 per person for everyone ages 2 and older. Young babies 23 months and under are free; however, they do not get a pumpkin. A $2 per person, non-refundable deposit is required to reserve your appointment and the remaining $10 per person is due at the door.
