The 9 Best Pumpkin Picking Places in West Virginia!

Fall in West Virginia means sweeping landscapes of orange, yellow, and red, apple cider, festivals, and of course, pumpkin picking. Your senses will be energized by being outside and there’s no better way to enjoy the great outdoors than by spending the day at one of these local farms, picking out that perfect pumpkin. Here are our favorite pumpkin picking spots in the state.

Orr’s Farm Market, Martinsburg, WV

Family owned and family friendly, Orr’s Farm in Martinsburg grows more than fresh fruit and vegetables. Once of the best pick-your-own spots in the region, they feature Spookey, the Square Pumpkin. Bring the kids to learn about Spookey, and while you’re there, enjoy a hayride, corn maze, photo opportunities, and great live music. There are several fall fun days and festivals featured at the farm, and the pumpkin patch opens the second weekend in September.

Byrnside Branch Farm, Union, WV

You can walk or ride to the pumpkin patch to pick your own personal pumpkin. There’s an 18-acre corn maze guaranteed to provide an “a-maizing” time, and the chance to sit around an old-fashioned fire listening to stories and singing with old friends and new. If you don’t wish to pick your own pumpkin, there are plenty to choose from inside, as well as decorative gourds, hay bales, and other fall vegetables to take home. It’s fun for all!
