We are open this weekend September 24th and 25th. Hours are 10am - 4pm for pumpkin picking. Weather looks to be again perfect for pumpkin picking this weekend! We continue with the wheel barrow special this weekend now priced at $75. Additionally we will have some strawberry picking on our late season variety, pre-picked strawberries for sale, winter squash discount priced by the bushel box, PYO sunflowers, and some fall PYO raspberries as well. The format will be much like last year with the wheel barrow special for pumpkin picking. The wheel barrow special is all you can fit in yet still wheel out of the field (pumpkins must be stay on with out assist while wheeling) for a fixed price. Like last year, the price per wheel barrow is $80 for the first weekend, $75 for the second weekend, and $65 for the remainder of the season. This is the same price as last year and is the best deal in pumpkins! The first weekend offers a premium, authentic, you cut from the vine pumpkin picking experience. We plant many different varieties of specialty gourds and traditional pumpkins in the field to choose from. Strawberry picking on the late season berries (which are super sweet) is more about the experience, large quantity pickers are better served in the spring season. Pre-picked strawberries will be for sale at the farm stand.

Additionally this weekend on Sunday we are excited to be hosting another visit from Knead Artisan Bread LLC.  Knead Artisan Bread is a startup sourdough bread baker run by Mike Gaughan of Bristol.  He will be selling his fresh baked bread at our farm stand on Sunday, so stop by and check it out .  His bread is awesome and a real treat.  

Pumpkin picking is located at our strawberry shack.  We are 1 mile south on tr 72 from the rt 4 & Rt 72 intersection in Harwinton.  Clicking on the strawberry icon on the homepage will sync to your gps to get you here.  Please note that at some point this fall season there will be some road construction on rt 72 that will force a small detour.  Road work has not yet started but I have heard that some gps directions are already suggestion the detour.  This is not necessary and I will alert everyone when the road work begins!
