Nothing screams Halloween like a jolly or jeering jack-o'-lantern glowing from the window on a chilly fall night. Some may choose to carve theirs into a grinning ghost, others a ghastly goblin. But the real fun starts in the pumpkin patch, where kids and adults alike can search for the perfect gourd to greet their trick-or-treaters.

Here you'll find our comprehensive guide to farms on Long Island that offer pick-your-own pumpkins in October. Many also offer bonuses for fall visitors, like corn mazes, hayrides, and harvest festivals, so families can get the full fall-on-the-farm experience.

Hours and availability are subject to change; we recommend calling ahead before visiting any of these locations.
