Pumpkin Picking at Decker FArm

Open only in the month of October for a true harvest season experience!

Students experience early American farm life when visiting 10 acres of wide-open farm fields in New York City set on a 200- year old active farm. Students participate in the rural chores of a 19th century farming family. End the day with a festive ride on a hay wagon around the fields before picking a pumpkin to take home. Tented and shaded areas are available for lunch.
