Pumpkin Picking in the NEK

One of the signature items of Halloween is jack-o-lanterns. Before you can start carving, you need to choose the perfect pumpkin. The Northeast Kingdom has many pumpkin patches and vegetable stands to explore. Pete’s Greens in Craftsbury is a farm stand that sells pumpkins already picked off the patch. For a more interactive experience pick your own at O'Donnell Farm in Westfield, they have pumpkins in the field, pumpkins already gathered from the field, a corn maze, a child-sized hay bale maze, horse-drawn hay rides and tractor-pulled hay rides.  Pumpkins abound in Vermont, be sure to find yours before the season ends!
