The Great 2016 Pumpkin Report

“There are three things that I’ve learned never to discuss with people: religion, politics, and the Great Pumpkin.”
— Linus, It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown

What you should discuss is how many pumpkins can fit in your trunk, because Bucks County has plenty of them (you just need to know where to look!). Right now, farms and farm markets are bursting with pumpkins, squashes and gourds, perfect for carving, decorating, and even eating.

Here’s a listing of pumpkins in Bucks and nearby that are available for sale and for pick-your-own, as of October 14, 2016. Always call or check their websites/Facebook for the latest pumpkin information. Happy pickin’!
