There is something quite special about a beautiful crisp, fall day in search of the perfect pumpkin to carve or the best bunch of apples to pick for a delicious apple pie! Nothing is more rewarding than finding your perfect pumpkin so make sure to check out great spots in Mercer County to get yours today. Want to expand past apples and pumpkins? Look into picking other seasonal veggies like spinach, zucchini, cucumbers and more - yum!

Lee Turkey Farm

201 Hickory Corner Road, East Windsor

There are more vegetables to pick in September and October than apples and pumpkins! Admission is $3 per person for anyone 3 and up (fee goes right back into the farm for upkeep and staff). Lee Turkey Farm also has pears, winter squash, sweet corn, cucumbers, zucchini, green beans, flat beans, eggplant, sweet peppers, hot peppers, broccoli, cabbage, lettuce and spinach to pick! Nothing is better than supporting a local farm and picking your own fresh veggies.
