Add in our fave activity of the year, pumpkin picking, and you’ve got the secret sauce to keep your #NJMOMfallvibes vibrating high. Check out our list below for some great family-friendly pumpkin patches around NJ, and be sure to bookmark this page as we update it throughout the season with new info. Always be sure to check each farm’s website (or give them a ring) before your visit for updates on openings due to weather.
