Pumpkin Picking — mid-September through early November 

Curtis Orchard features plenty of pumpkins – small sugar pies to regular jack o’ lanterns, and everything in between.  Even weird, warty knuckle-heads and colored pumpkins like blue, white, and tan “Libby” pumpkins! Don’t forget that we have a wide variety of squash and gourds too.

Check out the Pumpkin Patch!
