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!

It’s that time of year again, when families come from western Long Island and beyond to pluck their own pumpkins for Halloween jack-o’-lanterns and to decorate the Thanksgiving table.

If you don’t want to be the only family on the block without your stoop or window sill decorated with the big orange gourd of fall, we have a list of places to pick you own.
