Nothing screams Halloween is here and fall has arrived more than some bright orange pumpkins! Whether you are looking for some festive decorations for October, would like to do some pumpkin carving and painting or are into baking some fresh pumpkin pie, tis the season to meet all of your pumpkin needs! Here are some farms and patches that are close by to The Sagamore around Manhattan, where you can grab pumpkins in all shapes and sizes.
Decker Farm: Located on Staten Island, Decker Farm is one of NYC’s very own pumpkin patches! The Sagmore residents can take the subway and ferry to the island if you rely on public transportation for pumpkin picking fun! In addition to picking your own pumpkins, they have plenty of fun activities if you are looking to spend the day there. Visitors can take a tour of the farmhouse, enjoy a fun hayride or trip through their corn maze, or visit one of their many arts and craft stations! They also will be hosting other events through October like their Harvest Festival and Halloween Celebration. For more information about the farm, events, directions and buying tickets, visit their website.
Queens County Farm Museum: This museum is NYCs largest undisturbed farm. Their pumpkin patch will be open for picking every weekend during the month of October. The Museum also has a 3 acre corn maze on their property you can make your way through while visiting. Continuing the fall festivities, they will host a haunted house toward the end of October for one weekend only with cider and other Halloween treats! Make sure to visit their website to learn more!
