This 47-acre historic site is the oldest continually-farmed land in NYC. In addition to pumpkin picking on weekends in the fall, tots can visit the animals in the petting zoo, scope out farm equipment or get lost (and found) in the Amazing Maize Maze. There's also a haunted house and fall festivals throughout the season.

As we do each year, we scoped out the patches at local farms in the area and found wonderful results: Not only are these attractions great places to find a few gourds, they offer plenty of other fall activities such as corn mazes, sunflower picking, tractor rides and more!
After you've arrived back home from your rustic retreat, be sure to decorate your pumpkins and make them your own. We highly suggest doing so while watching a few scary movies for kids and Halloween movies for kids.
