Pick Your Own Pumpkins

Pumpkin Patches & Farm Markets Around Rochester

October is the official month for pumpkin picking and the pinnacle of fall in Upstate NY, but the fun begins in mid-September. And around Rochester, it’s so much more than simply buying a pumpkin.

It’s finding the perfect pumpkins in the field to carve your Halloween Jack-O’Lantern. It’s about family fun time on the farm—taking wagon rides, enjoying fresh apple cider & donuts, getting lost in giant corn maizes, and playing farm-themed games.

Next to wineries, pumpkins—and the fall harvest in general—are the most beloved agritourism activities around Rochester.
