via 201 – The harvest season is the perfect time to pick your own perfect pumpkin and take in the view from an old-fashioned perch: sitting on a bale of hay in a wagon.
Fortunately, that form of transportation is still available at several Bergen County farms every October.
Some farms also have corn mazes (day and night!), freshly made doughnuts, and apple cider – both hot and cold.
Contact the farms directly for hours and pricing.
