Pick-your-own pumpkins in Princeton area

Are there any suggestions for good pick-your-own pumpkins in the Princeton area? My wife wants to pick her pumpkin. I'm willing to go along, but I don't want to head to one of those carnival-like atmospheres. Instead, I'd like a legit farm that possibly has a farmstand with more edible fruits and vegetables. Any ideas?

    1. Eastmont Orchards in Colts Neck. They have pick your own apples too, and a small farmstand. Delicious Orchards is a two min drive, and there are also lots of farmstands around the area.

      1. Terhune Orchards is just outside of Princeton.

        Sadly, though pumpkin picking and carnival-like atmosphere seem to go hand in hand with each farm trying to out pumpkin the other.

          Terhune Orchards, great place, the owners are wonderful people. Just don't go on the weekends because they have alot of events during that time. Enjoy!
