The Friends of Muscoot Farm is hosting a Pumpkin Patch at Muscoot Farm in Somers, Saturday through Monday, Oct. 10 through 12 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Reservations available at westchestercountyparks.eventbrite.com.

Pumpkins will be for sale in the garden on the Muscoot complex. Pumpkin prices vary by size.

Westchester County Executive George Latimer said: “We are doing things a little differently this fall, but Westchester families can still have plenty of fun in our parks and picking their own pumpkin is a favorite family activity.”

Reservations are available online only with scheduled admission times, no walk-ins. Time slots will be 30 minutes and accommodate 50 people per slot. The event is rain or shine.

All visitors will be required to wear masks inside the Pumpkin Patch and observe all safety rules and social distancing guidelines. Hand sanitizer stations will be located throughout the patch and farm. As an additional precaution, contactless payment is strongly recommended, but cash may be tendered as a back-up.

The Farmers Market and farm complex will be open as well. All the animals will be viewable in their pastures and pens. Restrooms and porta-johns will be available.
