Picking pumpkins is a tradition I hope to continue forever… until the boys are at least 60 anyway…
Pick-your-own is clearly the most memorable, but also difficult to find. It may also be labeled ‘pick-your-own’ like Year 4 near Boston, but is actually a collection of pre-picked pumpkins near the parking lot.
Questions worth asking before you visit:
- Access to the field to physically pick your own?
- Price per pound or per pumpkin?
- Is there a corn maze or food also?
- How long should we plan to spend there?
Did nothing… as we were simply trying to survive being new parents
Year 2 (Best so far)
Rural Pennsylvania at a true pick-your-own, complete with a tractor ride to and from the field; having Grandma there also made it even that much better
Year 3 (Germany)
As ‘Halloween’ isn’t an international thing, I bought the monster-sized baking pumpkins that no one else wanted at the grocery store (price/kg made this pricey)
Farm experience near Boston, pumpkins were already picked, but the boys liked picking out their own from the pumpkin area and pulling it around in the supplied wagons
