How to Pick Pumpkins and Find a Pumpkin Patch in Saratoga Springs NY

2023 Guide to Pumpkin Patches and Pumpkin Picking in Saratoga Springs NY

One of the best things about fall, beside the cool, crisp air, is the pumpkins! I’ve already seen neighbors making beautiful displays of hay bails and pumpkins, get us all ready for fall. Of course, you can buy pumpkins at the grocery stores, but it’s way more fun to get them from the farm. The pumpkin patches around Saratoga Springs offer more than just pumpkin purchasing.

Enjoy have corn mazes, slides, petting zoos, hayrides, and of course, pick your pumpkins in the pumpkin patch! Below is all the information you need to know for enjoying fall this season.
