Pick-it-yourself pumpkin patches–an activity borrowed from our neighbors to the north–have taken off in popularity since local farmers started opening up their fields for a family fun day in late October.
This year, Wadson Farm’s annual pumpkin picking will take place at their home farm on Luke’s Pond Road, Southampton on Saturday, October 24 from 10:00a.m. to 1:00p.m. Farmer Tom will be on hand to show off lots of animals and families can enjoy hay rides and finding the perfect pumpkin.
