BARBARAELLEN KOCH PHOTO Peter Lynch of Rockville Centre carries pumpkins to the cash register as his family watches (from left) Caris, 9, Drew, 2, Evan, 6, wife Demitra and Ross, 12at the 26-acre Stakey Pumpkin farm in Aquebogue Friday afternoon. They have been visiting the farm for over 20 years.

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.
