PUMPKINS AND WINTER SQUASH AT ROYAL OAK FARM ORCHARD

 
Our Harvest Barn, located right next to the U-Pick Entrance, is your gateway to our U-pick and pre-picked pumpkins. We have dozens of varieties of pumpkins for you to pick from, or you can make your way to the Pumpkin Patch and pick your own jack-o-lantern pumpkins or pie pumpkins.  We also grow late summer Sugar Cube Melons as well as gourds and winter squash.  

 
If you prefer to pick your own pumpkins, head over to our pumpkin U-pick entrance on the east side of the orchard at our new Harvest Barn. We provide pumpkin wheel barrows for your use in picking of all your gourds, winter squash, and pumpkins so don't bring your own. While you are there, visit our Fruit Tree Nursery and purchase a fruit tree of your own!

 
Don't want to pick your own pumpkins?  Then visit our pre-picked pumpkin patch at the north end of the Harvest Barn for fresh picked pumpkins, squash and gourds.  There's a play area for the kids that includes hay Mountain and over a dozen different variets of pumpkins to choose from, including those pumpkins that look like they have warts growing all over 'em!
