Fall Harvest Celebration:
Are you looking for a place to enjoy the wonderful autumn season in Central New York? Well, Critz Farms is the place! Come visit our Fall Harvest Celebration every weekend, from mid September to late October.

Pick Your Own Pumpkins:
We have a beautiful selection of pumpkins for you to pick from. On weekends, you can take a tractor drawn wagon ride out to pumpkin field where you can romp around through acres of pumpkins to find just the right one (or two or three). The wagon will bring you back to the main barn where our helpful staff will weigh your selection. We offer pumpkins to visitors for 35 cents per pound. If you come during the week when we are not offering wagon rides, you can enjoy a short walk to the pumpkin field to make your selection. We invite you to use one of our many wheelbarrows to make it easy and fun.

Pre-Picked Pumpkins:
If you prefer not to go out into the pumpkin field, you can choose your perfect pumpkin from our large display near the barn. We have pumpkins of all sizes and shapes so that every family member will find just what they are looking for. During the week, customers can weigh their own pumpkins or ask the gift shop staff for assistance. On the weekends, barn staff will be happy to assist you.
