Article and photos by Eric H.
All puns aside, pumpkin patch destinations saturate the farm lands as well as small businesses and organizations choosing to sell pumpkins during autumn in many New England towns and cities. Here, we focus on two fabulous pumpkin picking spots located between Boston and Providence for your fall and halloween enjoyment...
ADAMS FARM, CUMBERLAND, R.I.
Adams Farm, Cumberland, R.I., traditionally lays out an amazing variety of pumpkins across its farm stand field in September and October. The pumpkin scene adds to an already impressive fall lineup at Adams Farm, including weekend hayrides, a farm animal area, free corn and hay mazes, bags of apples, caramel and candy apples and vibrant mums for sale. Owner Jim Marszalkowski helps make the experience here even that much better, as he treats his staff, family and customers with exceptional kindness and takes great pride of ownership in the fall presentation at his beautiful, hidden, relaxing farm tucked away between the small village-like setting of Sheldonville, Mass., and the scenic Diamond Hill reservoir. Adams Farm is located at 140 Summer Brown Rd. Tel. (401) 333-1845. normal hours are Monday-Friday 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. and Saturday-Sunday 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Always call ahead to ensure that Adams Farm will be open for your desired arrival time, as well as checking for the latest pumpkin picking conditions
PUMPKIN PATCH, EPIPHANY CHURCH OF WALPOLE, WALPOLE, MASS. (OCTOBER)
The Epiphany Church in Walpole, Mass., transforms its front and side yards into a spectacular pumpkin patch throughout October. The scene evokes pure small-town New England with the pumpkins, brilliant fall foliage colors around mid-October, and adjacent quaint, beautiful town common surrounded by historic buildings and small town businesses. Pam Driscoll, who heads this wonderful beloved fall attraction, beams with pride, year-round, about the sense of community surrounding the pumpkin patch: the event just doesn't bring people downtown, it brings them together. "Shop local, buy local" business at the Pumpkin Patch is as brisk as the fall chill in the air, the return of small town conversation trumps any modern day leanings of technology-based communications, and the simple joy of kids and adults searching for the right pumpkin creates a timeless scene that, thankfully, hasn't run out of time. What's more, the Pumpkin Patch at the Epiphany Church has created this event for another very important reason: a portion of the profits goes to a Native American reservation in New Mexico that supplies the Epiphany Church with the pumpkins. The money is used for much-needed education, job training and basic purposes. The Pumpkin Patch is located at 62 Front St. in Walpole at the corner of West St. in downtown Walpole. October business hours are 11 a.m.-7 p.m. daily. Contact Pam Driscoll at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
