Pumpking Picking Excursions Around Jersey City

October 9, 2019

Fall is finally in the air here in Jersey City! And, as everyone young and old is well-aware, there’s no better way to get in the autumn spirit than by going pumpkin picking as Halloween gets closer and closer.

If you’re ready to carve a pumpkin with the kids, paint it or just display it as some authentic fall décor in your Lenox apartment, then visit these farms that offer pumpkin picking this month. You better hurry though if you’re looking for that perfect pick!

Demarest Farms, located at 244 Wierimus Rd, Hillsdale which is 50 minutes from your Lenox apartment, has been a staple of the area since 1886 and offers pumpkin picking as well as pumpkin picking movie nights throughout the season.

Through November, the farm offers schools, families, friends and groups an opportunity to enjoy breathtaking scenery, tractor-pulled hay wagon rides, pet and feed friendly farm animals as well as savor their delicious honey, fresh pressed apple cider, apple cider donuts, homemade mixes and more!

Secor Farms, located at 85 Airmont Ave, Mahwah which is one hour from your Lenox apartment, is a nursery, garden center and market for local produce that transforms into a fall wonderland during the season.

Enjoy your day with a hayride to their pumpkin patch and corn maze. Their hayride takes you on a scenic ride of the farm, where you will pass by their pond, willow trees and fall decorations. Once you make it out to the field, feel free to explore the corn maze, pick a pumpkin and relax under their rustic pergola.
