Does it get more fall than picking out that perfect pumpkin? Whether your a pumpkin pie baker or creating a front door scene themed “undertaker,” we’ve got what you need.

Washburn’s Windy Hill Orchard: Greenville, NH

Pumpkins, horse drawn hayrides, apple picking, farm animals, apple cider donuts, AND A CORN MAZE make this the most popular spot to get a fall fix on the eastern edge of the region.

Alyson’s Orchard: Walpole, NH

Alyson’s is just northwest of Keene, NH, making it THE spot in the western corner of the region to enjoy a quintessential fall day. Pumpkins, tractor drawn hay rides, a delicious BBQ menu, apple cider donuts, sunflowers, a petting zoo, and a playground is why a visit to Alyson’s is such a popular family tradition for those near and far.

Patterson Farm: Hinsdale, NH

Home of the Pumpkin Palace, Patterson Farm is one of the largest pumpkin farms in the Northeast. Of course, there are hayrides but there’s also a school bus filled with pumpkins! It’s a great spot for family fall photos with a variety of artistic pumpkin displays to serve as the perfect backdrop.

The Green Wagon Farm: Keene, NH

Located just under two miles from downtown Keene, the Green Wagon Farm is beloved by locals. Perfect for a more relaxed farm experience, you’ll find flowers, pumpkins, squash, and all kinds of goodies for your decorative and nourishment needs.

Oak Park Farmer’s Market: Greenfield, NH

This farmer’s market is one of the biggest in the region, with live music, food and drinks, a playground, and even yoga in the morning before the market opens. In the fall, you’ll likely find a vendor or two (or more!) that sell some beautiful pumpkins.

Rosaly’s Garden: Peterborough, NH

This is a beautiful spot where you can shop for pumpkins, gourds, and even pick your own flowers.

Farmers Markets: Throughout the Region

In addition to the Oak Park Farmer’s market, there are several other farmers markets that sell seasonal produce, including the great pumpkin. For a complete list of farmers markets in the region, click here.
