We got to go to the pumpkin patch this weekend and I was super excited! It was almost perfect fall weather (the wind was REAL) and I hadn't had an excuse to go before RJ so of course I was ready for October to get here!
That's my "Why are we always late?" face. We got to Schmitt Farms around 3:30pm and they close at 5 so I was nervous about not having enough time to see everything that I ... I mean RJ... wanted to see. Of course my battery died so I didn't get to take pictures, but my boyfriend got some great ones.
Schmitt Family Farm is located in Melville Long Island. Other than a pumpkin/vegetable patch, they have a petting zoo, pony rides, airbrush tattoos/face painting, multiple inflatables and a playground. I am super upset about my phone dying because I didn't get to capture pictures of everything that we did but I can say that everything was super reasonably priced ($3 for the petting zoo, $0.74/pound per pumpkin and free hayride!) and it was busy so I can imagine it's the go-to farm if you are in the NYC/Long Island area and aren't looking to travel upstate. I also heard pricing-wise it is more reasonably priced than another farm local to it, but that's only hearsay since I haven't been there. My family enjoyed it, even my boyfriend who was resistant at first! I can't wait to go back next year!
