October is the pumpkin season which brings us to exploring and determining the best farms and attractions in America.
The perfect time to pick out pumpkins is when the leaves start to change and frost bites into the air. Picking a jack-o-lantern would not bore you much because pumpkin farms offer enough activities, mostly family friendly, which keeps you busy, active and well-fed all day.
Whether the goal is either to provide the kids with a fun-filled and fall-themed day, or just canvassing decorative gourds, pumpkin farms would not disappoint you because they got you covered.
The only condition is to bring shoes and pants to prevent being dirty after doing the activities. Travel and Leisure also says to not forget to layer the outfit; it should be comfortable and fit for the options in terms of posing in front of the extremely picturesque and autumnal backdrops.
One thing is for sure: there's something here for everyone.
1. Roba Family Farm in Jermyn, Pennsylvania
Primarily an orchard, this Pennsylvania family farm open their pumpkin patch to the public. Try picking up apples and selecting a primo-pumpkin. There is also a corn maze, farm goats which visitors can hand-feed, and sip some cider.
2. Great Jack O'Lantern Blaze in Croton-on-Hudson, New York
This is not technically a farm, but the venue brings together 7,000 individually hand-carved jack-o-lanterns. Within easy day-trip distance from New York City, the epic display can provide you choices like walking along the Hudson on the grounds of the historic Van Cortlandt Manor, built in the early 18th century,and visit a tunnel, headless horseman, sea serpent, and even an entire spider web made of illuminated pumpkins. Make sure to buy tickets ahead of time before it gets sold out.
3. Jumbo's Pumpkin Patch in Middleton, Maryland
There is a pick-your-own pumpkin patch in here and a 15-acre corn maze with a truly enormous farm store. The family farm also offers pony rides, hayrides, and horse-drawn wagon rides, along with lots of farm-fresh treats to eat.
4. Cox Farms
This opened in 1972 when Herndon was more farmland than suburb. The culture here is that they celebrate fall every year with a grand Fall Festival and end with an early November "Pumpkin Madness" finale, where leftover pumpkins are "hurled, smashed, dropped, spiked, bowled, and squished." The farm also has a famous interactive hayride or spooky nighttime "Fields of Fear" attraction.
5. Yahoo Farm
The farm offers up a superlative combination of pumpkins, things to do, and treats to sample. A new bakery sells fried apple pie and slices of pumpkin roll. They've also got a corn cannon, carving contest, hay maze, and a haunted hay ride.
