Hathaway Farm, Rutland, VT

At the Hathaway Farm, the corn maze opens the last weekend in July and runs straight through the last weekend in October. Of course, it brings with it a giant pumpkin patch, but that is not all.

Winslow Farms, Pittsford, VT

Winslow Farms offers a huge five-acre u-pick pumpkin plot every year, and this year is no exception. But, if picking it yourself is not your thing, stop by their newly-restored 1840s post and beam barn, where will find freshly picked pumpkins, mini-pumpkins, gourd, ornamental corn, and sugar pumpkins as well as fresh-squeezed cider and hot coffee.

Lincoln Farm, Randolph Center, VT

Established in 1921, Lincoln has made it a point to plant an entire field full of pumpkins for their annual u-pick event for many years. They even offer cups of hot mulled cider and a wagon rides to the patch, and, additionally, pumpkins are $.50 per pound and pie pumpkins are only $3. The ride is free and so is cider, so what are you waiting for?

Equinox Nursery, Manchester, VT

The Pumpkin Patch at Equinox Nursey is home to the annual Pumpkin Festival, which takes place the second weekend in October. But the patch is open mid-August through November, and it is chock-o-block full of thousands of jolly orange pumpkins. Plus you find other Halloween notables in the patch as well, like Mr. Scarecrow. And, when you return from your journey there will be fresh cider donuts and cider waiting for you.

Green Mountain Orchards, Putney, VT

This pick-your-own-orchard was started in 1914, and apple trees were planted at the time. Although apples remain the main crop, spanning over 125 acres, you can also find 18 acres of blueberries and a large pumpkin patch in the fall. Plus, don’t miss fresh cider and homestead cheese at this very old Vermont orchard. 

Whitcomb’s Land of Pumpkins, Williston, VT

Not only will you get a pumpkin education here, but it is a great place to pick pumpkins, especially the giant variety. With a four-acre corn maze and several acres of pumpkins to sort through, you are bound to find a pumpkin that is right for you. Plus the rich river bottom soil of the Winooski River grows the biggest and best pumpkins, so maybe you’ll want to go for a giant one.
