Pick-Your-Own Pumpkins in New England


Bethlehem, Connecticut A fourth-generation family farm with a 10-acre hilltop pumpkin field, offering views that stretch seemingly forever. The corn mazes and “Hayloft Playscape” for kids are great bonuses. 160 Munger Lane. 203-266-7721;


Dayton, Maine Enjoy a hayride out to the four-acre patch and pick from white, red, and traditional orange jack-o’-lantern-worthy pumpkins. Reasonably priced (five pounds and under for $3). The corn maze and friendly farm animals make it an outing. 100 Union Falls Road. 207-929-4088;


South Natick, Massachusetts Established in 1651, this family farm is located less than 20 miles from Boston. Choose from 40,000 pumpkins in the expansive patch located right across from the U-Pick barn. Hayrides and a kids’ play area keep the little ones happy. 89 Pleasant St. 508-651-1539;


Lee, New Hampshire Pick your own from not just one but two patches at this beautiful farm. You can either walk or ride out there, but if you’re in a rush, stop by the store to select a pumpkin.

Colchester, Vermont Starting the last weekend of September, take a spooky hayride past the three-mile corn maze and through a haunted forest to the PYO pumpkin patch.
