Celebrate pumpkin season!
The arrival of fall calls for celebration and the unofficial icon of fall is the pumpkin – thousands of which are ripening in Delaware fields right now! Whether your fall celebration includes pumpkin carving, pumpkin pies or anything in between, Delaware has you covered!
Find your perfect pumpkin
Pumpkins are in season across the state and these farms are great options for you to find a pumpkin to take home, whether it’s for carving, painting or eating!
Ramsey's Farm & Pumpkin Patch
Ramsey’s Farm is open Fridays through Sundays every October for you to pick your own pumpkin straight from the patch, explore the corn maze and take a hayride around the property.
This 100-year-old farm celebrates fall to the max every year with a Fall Fest featuring an elaborate corn maze, games for the kids, live music, food vendors, a fall market and of course, pumpkins straight from the patch.
T.S. Smith & Sons Farm
This farm, established in 1907, specializes in apples and peaches, but pumpkins take center stage from September through November every year.
Mr. Pepper’s Pumpkin Patch
Choose from a dozen different pumpkin varieties at this fall-centric farm featuring gourds, Indian corn and fall produce. Their two-acre corn maze and famous BBQ lunches are sure to impress.
Savor the fall flavors
You may be familiar with Pumpkin Spice Lattes but what about a “Pumpkin Spicy Latte”? Mug & Spoon’s signature fall java has everything you love about pumpkin spice but with a kick of Harvest Pumpkin Hot Sauce.
No meal warms your bones like a hot, rich soup. The Back Burner Restaurant serves up a tasty Pumpkin Mushroom soup topped with fresh sour cream, chives and croutons.
Smooth, creamy pumpkin ice cream is the perfect way to finish off a meal. In the northern part of the state, try a scoop from Woodside Farm Creamery and in the south, grab a cone from Vanderwende Farm Creamery in Bridgeville or Dewey Beach.
For Happy Hour
Delaware’s vast craft beverage industry leaves no shortage of pumpkin infused drinks to cap off your evening. Dogfish Head’s seasonal specialty Punkin’ Ale is a Must-try featuring brown sugar, all spice and nutmeg. While Crooked Hammock’s Jav-O-Lantern brings together the flavors of pumpkin, dark malts and roasted coffee beans.
