Why not combine a fall trip to the Valley with picking up a pumpkin? From pick-your-own to on-site sales, the Shenandoah Valley will help you prepare for pumpkin pies, jack-o-lanterns, and fall decorating.
Lohr’s U-Pick Pumpkins

Over 10 acres of pumpkins, and not just the jack-o-lantern type. Lohr’s has more than 50 varieties. You can even pick up some other natural Autumn decorations.

I’ve purchased plenty of peaches and apples from Paugh’s. I can’t wait to see what they offer for pumpkins! They apparently have U-pick.
24247 Senedo Road, Woodstock, Virginia 22664; 540-459-8645 (near Walmart)
I stop at Mowery’s every weekend. Love their peaches, plums, and apples. They even let you sample an apple! Pumpkins for sale at their farm market.
High Hill Farm
933 Barley Ln, Winchester, Virginia
Corn maze, baked goods, apple butter, and pumpkins– Oh, and don’t forget the haunted house! I really hope to make it to High Hill Farm soon.
3035 Cedar Creek Grade, Winchester, VA 22602
I’ve picked up a few gallons of apple cider from this farm market, and it’s really tasty. It looks like they put out quite a few pumpkins for Autumn.
Richard’s Fruit Market6410 Middle Road, Middletown, VA 22645
I’ve visited Richard’s several times for the annual gourd festival held there in the fall. The baked goods always smell wonderful, and they have a variety of apples. They also have a good pile of “punkins.”
Please comment if you know of any other valley pumpkin patches or markets!
