Pumpkin picking at Rader Family Farms has become a long standing tradition for many families and friends. For our returning guests, we look forward to seeing you again and we're excited to welcome our first time visitors in the excitement of selecting that perfect pumpkin!
Pick-your-own pumpkins is available everyday of the season. We encourage you to grab a wagon from the wagon corral near the entrance and take a leisurely stroll to the field to select that perfect pumpkin for carving or decorating. We offer free admission to our U-Pick Patch, however, present a form of identification at the Corn Maze booth to gain access to the U-Pick Patch.
Pick-your-own pumpkins is available everyday of the season.
We'll tell you now and we'll probably tell you again while you're here, but we recommend you only cut the stem of the pumpkin you want and then remember do not pick pumpkins up by the stem. Instead, get your hands underneath the pumpkin and pick it up from the bottom. It will help protect the stem and extend the life of the pumpkin. We love stems!
Of course we also have thousands of pumpkins, gourds, and squash already picked and just waiting for you to chose them in the main produce area. Most produce is sold by weight.
