Pumpkin Picking at Gill's Farm in Hurley

Off-roading at Gills Farm

Is there anything more fun than an off-road hay ride when the weather is so gorgeous out? The kids loved the hay ride at Gill’s Farm. The “off-roading” portion where the tractor driver drove us through a swampy marsh was the highlight. After the hay ride, we tested out the hay tunnel. (I barely made it out of there and got my knees nice and muddy! Dress accordingly if you are going to try this). We ended the morning with pumpking picking. Most of the pumpkins were in excellent shape. There is also a store on the site that sells apples, homemade cookies, jams, and other gourmet farm stuff. The only negative is that there is only a porto potty—no real bathroom on site. The “pumpkin shooter” launches pumpkins on weekends. I would call ahead of time to verify this as the season will be ending before you know it!
