It’s fall time at the farm! Here’s where to pick the perfect pumpkin around Pittsburgh.

⬆️ North

Spend a day at Soergel Orchards in Wexford drinking cider, picking pumpkins and apples, and shopping at the market; fall fest runs every weekend through October.

Also in Wexford, the Shenot Farm pumpkin patch opens Sept. 30 and is open seven days a week. Check out their scenic walking trail!

Yeck Farms in Beaver County hosts its fall festival on weekends in October, but right now you can still find fresh corn at the market.

Harvest Valley Farm in Gibsonia turns into a pick-your-own pumpkin festival on the weekends in October with hayrides, a corn maze, farm animals, craft beer, baked goods, and more.

Freedom Farms in Butler also hosts its fall festival every weekend in October with tractor and hay rides, farm-fresh food, a pumpkin patch, and more. Get in on the autumn fun early with the 21+ Maized and Confused event on Sept. 23 where you can hunt for local beer, wine, and spirits in the corn maze.

➡️ East

Gearhard Farms in Murrysville is known for its annual corn maze. The design includes a “mystery aerial message” that’s revealed at the end. Check their page for pumpkin patch info.

Celebrate sixteen years of Braddock Farms on Oct. 7 with a family-friendly celebration of the fall harvest season featuring food, crafts, games, pumpkins, and demos.

⬇️ South

Triple B Farms in Monongahela kicks off its fall season on Sept. 23 with pumpkin, apple, and flower picking, and it lasts through October.

Bedner’s Farm Market in Upper Saint Clair doesn’t have a patch, but it always has a selection. For now, purchase their homegrown peppers, tomatoes, eggplant, squash, and onions.

Fall activities are underway at Simmons Farm in McMurray: hayrides, corn mazes, and apple and flower picking. Go for a scenic hayride and pick any size pumpkin for $20.

Trax Farms in Finleyville starts its fall festival on Sept. 23, and runs every weekend through October 22. Find goods from the market, hayrides, farm animals, food trucks, a corn maze, live music, and pumpkins galore. And don’t miss Hops and Hayrides every Friday.

⬅️ West

Growing up, Janoski’s Farm & Greenhouse was always my pumpkin picking destination. Celebrate fall at Pumpkinland weekends in October with hay rides, corn mazes, food and craft vendors, and more. Don’t forget to stop in the market to find lots of locally made goodies.

More pumpkin-themed fun: Fall Fest on Bigham Street on Oct. 8, Pittsburgh Monster Pumpkins Festival in the Strip District on Oct. 21-22, and a pumpkin carving class at Black Dog Wine Company in Oakdale on Oct. 26.
