20 Best Farms for Pumpkin and Apple Picking Around New York City and New Jersey

“An apple a day keeps the doctor away”. I think it would be better to add a pumpkin to this phrase because these vegetables and fruit are not only tasty but also very useful for our health. And what can be better than picking ecological apples and pumpkins with your kids, spending time outdoors, and then having a picnic. Especially if it Halloween is coming soon. And what’s All Hallows’ Eve without the perfect pumpkin? You could grab one from your local farmers’ market, grocery store or one of the few pumpkin patches right here in New York City.
