(WWLP) – Pumpkin picking and carving pumpkins are a few fall activities that people look forward to every year. This year, pumpkins may be smaller due to the drought.

Earlier Wednesday we were checking out the huge pumpkins at the Farm-a-Rama building at the Big E.  Fall officially starts Thursday. The pumpkins located in the Farm-a-Rama got extra attention and more water than some pumpkins out in a regular field.

Jacquier Cornelia, Superintendent of Farm-a-Rama told 22News, “The farmers who have the pumpkins in the field that don’t have access to irrigation you will probably see a little bit of a difference, smaller pumpkin and a few less in quantity.”

22News has created a list of places you can get pumpkins if you are looking for a place near you to buy a pumpkin or go pumpkin picking. Call ahead if you are looking to go pumpkin picking.
