At Carrigan Farms, we have some crops that we pick for you and some that you can pick yourself. In the spring, asparagus and strawberries are plentiful, along with lots of heirloom leaf lettuce. In the summer, look for fresh garden veggies. Apples begin Labor Day weekend and last a few weeks and then once October starts its PUMPKIN TIME!
At Carrigan Farms we GROW tens of thousands of pumpkins every year. Each and every hayride includes a trip to the pumpkin patch, where kids of all ages (adults too!) each pick their very own pumpkin. Pumpkins range in size from 2-20 pounds +/-, so everyone can find their size.
Hayrides to the pumpkin patch are offered every Saturday and Sunday in October from 9:00 AM until 4:00 PM with wagons departing every 15 minutes. Cost is $10.00 per person and includes a pumpkin, a visit to the petting zoo, and fresh apple cider. No reservation is needed for weekend hayrides between 9:00 AM and 4:00 PM.
Weekday hayrides depart every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday during the month of October at 2:00 PM, 3:00 PM and 4:00 PM sharp. No reservation is needed for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoon hayrides at the times listed above.
Apple season begins September 4th. Both red and golden delicious apples will be available for picking during the month of September. No other varieties are available for picking.Hours are Monday through Friday from 9:30 AM until 5:00 PM and Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 AM until 5:00 PM during the month of September.
September Saturday and Sunday Apple Picking Information:

*Note: For example, if you have a family of four, cost is $40 ($10 per person). Children ages 23 months and younger are free but do not get their own bag of apples. All guests ages 2 and above are charged $10 for apple picking and this includes a half peck bag of apples. For $20 you can upgrade to a large bag of apples that holds a half bushel. Large (half bushel) apple bags also available for $20, with the same stipulations as above.
Please inspect apples BEFORE picking / removing from the tree. Do not pick an apple unless you plan to put it in your bag. If you pick an apple and see that the apple is rotten, feel free to drop it on the ground but apples are like people and rarely do you find one that is perfect. Please do not leave trash in the orchard or on the ground. We have trash cans available in many places.
Available again starting in Mid-April. Season is finished for 2015.
