Pick-your-own Pumpkins - near N.E. Coast

Does anyone know of a pick-your-own pumpkin farm near the N.E. coast? I'm looking for somewhere that I might go into the patches with my girlfriend to pick a pumpkin and propose; her childhood fantasy. For any good suggestions, I would be very grateful. Thanks.

  1. Cider Hill Farms in Amesbury has a pumpkin patch.

    1. Try this website for a listing of pick your own farms in RI and MA, which you can narrow by location to look for something along the coast:
      (the link above is supposed to be just for pick your own pumpkin farms--if the link doesn't work, just try going to and navigating through the links to pick your own farms).

      I like Quonset View Farm in Portsmouth, RI, or Sweet Berry Farm in Middletown, RI. The latter is quite close to Third Beach in Newport, which is a beautiful vista for proposing. Both farms are close to the ocean and lots of beautiful scenery and good restaurants for celebrating.

      Good luck! Sounds like a great idea for a proposal!
