The Hamptons in the Fall!...Nothing quite like it!
Those of us who live here, in the Hamptons, year round are the luckiest of all!!! We get to be here during the most beautiful and delicious time of year: Harvest Season.
September and October is when the crowds are gone, the weather is perfect, the colors take on a vastly different hue and the time to pick pumpkins has arrived!
On the way to Bridgehampton from Southampton is Water Mill. Every Fall, Pumpkin farms, located along the stretch of Route 27 open up to the public and create an environment that children never forget! Hundreds of cars park along the highway and the children are allowed to run free within the wire fencing that surrounds the grounds. The fields are overflowing with Pumpkins and wooden castles, trains, old pirate ships and giant slides. In other words the 5 acre farm is transformed into a wonderland that families can enjoy through the whole month of October......
BRING THE WHOLE FAMILY TO THE HAMPTONS IN THE FALL; MAKE A DAY TRIP IF YOU ARE CLOSE ENOUGH! Come for the weekend too---there are accommodations nearby that welcome young families; the more the merrier!!!
When you have selected your pumpkin and packed it securely away in the trunk, take a drive North to the farm fields and farm stands that offer the fruits from the end of summer..you can find fresh ear-corn, cabbages, gourds, and tomatoes; califlour, beets, carrots and green, leafy lettuce....and just down the road from the Pumpkin Field is an apple orchard--another place to visit to buy apples, pies, cider, honey and maple sugar candy!
This will be A WEEKEND TO REMEMBER forever!
