Pumpkin season starts around mid-September and with it comes a whole lot of fun pumpkin-related activities for the family. Here's a list of places you can take the gang to find orange pumpkins, white pumpkins, gourds and more.

Farm-Fresh Pre-Picked Pumpkin Patches. These farms have pumpkins that are pre-picked from the field and placed in a patch for you to pick from. This is a good option for anyone with kids who hate to get dirty or for anyone who doesn't have the time to do a full blow PYO trip.


Pick-Your-Own Pumpkin Fields. Pick your-own-pumpkin fields are just what they sound like so grab a pair of shoes you don't mind getting dirty and find your just-right pumpkin. For safety, some of these farms have already cut the pumpkins from the vine so all you have to do is find them in the field and bring them home.

Have fun out there, and don't forget to take a photo of your little cuties sitting awkwardly among the pumpkins!
