Pumpkin Patches in Fairfield County


A boy picking a pumpkin.I look forward to the fall months when the leaves on the trees change from green to vibrant reds and yellows. We are quickly reminded of how fast the seasons change. The fall months bring us cooler weather making outdoor family fun trips around Fairfield County enjoyable. Some of my favorite activities are visiting the farms with apple picking, hayrides, wine tasting, and pumpkins! 

I have explored some great pumpkin patches in Fairfield County to visit in the fall. Grab a sweater and bring some large reusable bags to fill with fresh fruit and vegetables. Here are my top picks.

Jones Family Farm {Shelton}

This farm offers many great options for everyone. Pumpkin picking season is in full swing, and their hours are daily during the fall. Jones farm also is unique, with a winery on the property. Your family will also find corn mazes, hayrides, and animals here too. Definitely the quintessential autumn fun for all in Fairfield County.
