I was driving my oldest son back from school on Thursday and pumpkins were on the brain. "Hey, Dad, when can we get a pumpkin", he asked. Yes, it's that time, I mean it maybe too early yet to carve one, but, certainly you can get one for the front steps.

Pumpkins originated in Central America and are actually considered a fruit and a squash and, apparently the seeds contain some medicinal properties. For most of us, though, they make great fall decorations and a mean tasting pie!

So, Where Can You Get A Pumpkin In The Berkshires?

1. Whitney's Farm Market (Rte. 8 in Cheshire).

A massively popular spot here in Berkshire County, Whitney's is a sure go-to for everything fall.


2. Ioka Valley Farm (Rte. 43 in Hancock).

My first visit here was for my son's pre-school field trip, what a cool place, and pumpkins for sale!


3. Jaeschke's Orchard (Gould Rd. in Adams).

Jaeschke Apple Orchard produces top quality tree fruits. Apples, peaches, pears, and plums along with other crops... Pumpkins available in the fall.
