Pumpkin Season is Here!

Leave a comment

With crisp nights and cool days, the pumpkins area ready for harvest! Visit the farm September 25th and 26th for our Pumpkin Preview Weekend at Pumpkinseed Hill, featuring hayrides, a corn maze, and over 50 varieties of pumpkins, squash and gourds. The Harvest Yard features specialty varieties like pink pigs and speckled swans picked by our farmers. Or take a walk to one of our fields and harvest a pumpkin straight from the vine.

From 12-4 pm all weekend, we will also be celebrating local winners of Connecticut Magazine’s “Best of CT 2010.” Liquid Lunch (Best Connecticut Soup), Stockbridge’s Cheesecake (Best Connecticut Cheesecake), and Jones Winery (Best Connecticut Wine) will be in the courtyard outside the Jones Winery for tastes of their delicious products. Meet our winemaker, Larry McCulloch, as he takes farm guests on a guided tour through the demonstration vineyard. Or sample some of Stone Gardens’ vegetables at the height of the Connecticut harvest. Visit the farm events page for details. We look forward to seeing everyone this weekend for the kickoff of pumpkin season!
