We will be open for the 2017 Fall season on Saturday, September 23rd!!
Fall is our favorite season here at F&W Schmitt’s Family Farms. Why, you might ask? Because it’s a continuation of a decades old tradition wherein parents bring their children to pick their own pumpkins, Bill, Ferdie and the other farmers give free hayrides, and families have a time to reconnect as the long hot summer comes to a close. Continue your family tradition or start a new one, this fall at F&W Schmitt’s Family Farm in Melville.
The Best Pumpkin Picking on Long Island! One of the joys of the fall season is picking out your very own pumpkin that’s perfect for you. It’s a rite of passage, and a fall tradition that can’t be beat. The quest for the perfect pumpkin is one that befalls both young and old. In order to make the perfect jack-o-lantern, you need the perfect pumpkin. In order to make the best porch decoration, you need the perfect pumpkin. And in order to bake the most delicious fall pies, you need the perfect pumpkin.
