Where to go pumpkin picking on the North Fork

R100611_Halloween_BE_C.jpg

It’s that time again.

Hamptons Coffee Co. is selling pumpkin pie coffee, Crooked Ladder Brewing Co. has “Outta My Vine” pumpkin beer on tap, and best of all, North Fork pumpkins are ready to be picked. And we have your guide on where to find them.

If you do visit the region this fall, we just ask that you remain courteous to the locals and obey all local traffic laws (though if you are a northforker reader you are by default awesome and will do that anyway.)

Remember to call the farms in advance to confirm hours and availability.

See you in those fields of orange!
