U-Pick Pumpkins at Soons Orchards
Pumpkin picking at Soons is fun for all ages and a family for tradition for our customers year after year. Get your Charlie Brown on and go hunting for the Great Pumpkin in our patch!
2021: Pick your own pumpkins weekends are back!
U-Pick pumpkins usually starts mid- to late September and runs through the last weekend in October. We run our wagons on weekends only (plus holiday Mondays or Fridays), typically 10 or 11 til 4ish, depending on the weather and demand.
In 2020 we started online reservations; we are continuing this in 2021 as it saved time and helped spread demand out of the peak hours, though we hope to offer some wagons for walk-ins as well.
Grab your time slot here and put it in your phone to arrive 15 minutes ahead.

The wagon ride is priced by person @$4, with young kids (1-2 y/o) no charge. Pumpkins are priced by the pound (.58, white pumpkins .99) we weigh them on your return.
We load wagons on the west side of our store, just behind the Tap room. Our wagons are real hay wagons, so please watch your step getting on and off the wagon. No glass bottles on the wagon or anything else fragile please.
The ride to the field and back usually takes 25 to 40 minutes, depending on which field we go to and how many people are on the wagon.
You’ll be picking from our fields, off the vine – so you may want to bring clippers (we should have a pair to share). We don’t over-spray our fields so it could be weedy – you may want to wear long pants and sturdy shoes. If it has rained recently it may be muddy as well. (A perfect time to break out those cute boots you never get to wear!)
Pumpkin picking is great for photos of course - feel free to share yours and tag us on the socials!
Don’t want to pick your own? No worries! We’ll have plenty of already picked pumpkins, plus squash, gourds, corn stalks and other signs of the fall season, available.
