Pumpkin Picking on the South Shore

It’s time to hit the pumpkin patches and find those perfect gourds!  We took the kids this weekend (a little weird to be climbing over pumpkin vines in shorts) and had a blast.  There are some great local places to pick-your-own pumpkins, many include other attractions like hayrides, animals, and even corn mazes!

  • Belkin Lookout Farm (Natick):  Not south shore, but a great place to take the kids.  In addition to pumpkin picking, enjoy a train ride, kids playground, hay pyramid, farm animals, caterpillar rides, burlap maze and moon bounce.
  • CN Smith Farm (East Bridgewater):  Pick from the field weekends only (hayride required), pick from the pile 7 days a week.
  • Nihtila Farm (Holbrook):  Pick your own pumpkins Friday, Saturday & Sunday from 11am til dark.  Tractor-pulled hayrides available on weekends.
  • Sauchuk Farm (Plympton):  Pick from the patch weekends only.  Corn maze, hayrides, cow  train, corn cannons, giant  jumping pillow, duck races, and a spider web climber available too!
  • Ward’s Berry Farm (Sharon):  Pick your own pumpkin patch is open 7 days a week from 9am-6pm, walk to the patch (10 minutes each way) or take a $3 hayride.  Hayrides available weekends only.  Pick from the stand 7 days a week.  Click here for more details.
