One of the best ways to embrace the fall spirit is by visiting a local pumpkin patch. Whether you're looking for the perfect pumpkin to carve a Jack-o-lantern or you just want to enjoy a day out with the family, the South Shore area offers an array of pumpkin patches that cater to all your fall needs
LOCATION: Wheelwright Farm on Main Street
HOURS: Open Daily from 10am-7pm (10/7-10/31)
This isn't just any pumpkin patch; it's a patch with a purpose. This annual tradition is the largest fundraiser supporing the summer service trip to Appalachia. The Appalachia Service Project is a Christian volunteer home-repair organization, aimed at making homes warmer, safer, and drier for families in need throughout Central Appalachia.
Volunteers gather to unload over 3,500 pumpkins and arrange them into a festive design. Pumpkins range in size and price.

The Pumpkin Patch at Second Parish Church has become a cherished local tradition that marks the arrival of the autumn season. Situated on the church's spacious grounds, this pumpkin patch is a great place to find your perfect pumpkin.
There are also local nursies that sell pumpkins in addition to mums, cornstalks and hay bales.
Happy pumpkin picking!
