With the return of fall comes the annual tradition of picking pumpkins at Long Island farms, but only some locations offer the opportunity to pick gourds straight off the vine.

While some farms place pumpkins in a field, a select few allow patrons to march right into the field and find future jack-o’-lanterns in an authentic pumpkin patch.

So break out the flannel shirts and strap on some boots, because here’s a roundup of pick-your-own pumpkin farms on LI where people can score the freshest of gourds this fall. Mask and social-distancing rules apply.
