Already picked pumpkinsThere’s always something that feels special about the sights, smells and tastes of the fall season! What says fall like pumpkins?

Start or continue a fall tradition by picking just the right pumpkin at Rader Family Farms, where the vibrant colors of fall come to life in our acres of pumpkin patch. Rader Family Farms is home to an array of pumpkin varieties, each hand-grown and hand-picked.

Experience the quality of good old-fashioned homegrown produce as you wander through our fields, selecting the perfect pumpkin to adorn your doorstep or inspire your next recipe. From classic orange pumpkins to unique heirloom varieties, there’s something for every taste and preference at Rader Family Farms.

Pick-your-own pumpkins is available every day of the season. We encourage you to grab a wagon from outside the maze building, where you can check out clippers and take a leisurely stroll to the field to select that perfect pumpkin for carving or decorating. Most pumpkins are sold per pound.

To get the most out of your U-pick pumpkin, use clippers to cut the stem, but do not pick pumpkins up by the stem. Instead, pick the pumpkin up from the bottom. That will protect the prickly stems.

Cotton Candy and Moonshine pumpkins are some of the pumpkins you can find on the farm. They have a striking white color, slight ribbing and smooth skin, which makes them ideal for painting. These range from 8 to 12 pounds. Polar Bear pumpkins have similar traits but weigh in at 30 to 65 pounds!
