Fall is in full swing on the North Fork, which means it’s time to visit a pumpkin patch.
In Aquebogue, the Stakey family has been growing pumpkins since 1976. They began with just one acre but today, you can explore a 26-acre field where 18 varieties of pumpkins and gourds can be found growing on the vine.
You can also see the farm on a hay ride or on foot through a corn maze. Then, stop by the stand for delicious treats like apple cider doughnuts or a cool, refreshing apple cider slushy.
On weekends, special popups like face painting and candle making are also available. Follow them on Instagram for the latest information.
Stakey’s Pumpkin Farm is located at 270 West Lane in Aquebogue and is open weekdays from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. and weekends from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. through Oct. 30.
Note that on Monday, Oct. 10, the farm will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Spend a minute with us having all the fall fun there.
