Stop by our farm for pumpkins and décor this fall! Pumpkin picking at C&C Reading Farm (formerly Billingsgate Farm) is a long-standing tradition for many New England families and friends.
NOTICE: Due to COVID-19, things look a little different at the farm this fall season. Your safety and enjoyment of the farm is important to us. Therefore, we are making modifications to help keep everyone safe and healthy — minimizing contact wherever possible and making it easier to practice social distancing. Pumpkins and decorations such as Indian corn and gourds are for sale at our Farm Stand or guests may pick out pumpkins to purchase from the field by the Farm Stand. There will NOT be rides available this season and the corn maze and other fall attractions are not open.
New for 2020: Get in the fall mood and enjoy some fresh cider donuts while you are here!
We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to welcome our first time visitors!
Due to the COVID pandemic, things will look a little different at our farm this fall season. Your safety and enjoyment of the farm is important to us. Therefore, we are making modifications to help keep everyone safe and healthy — minimizing contact wherever possible and making it easier to practice social distancing. As a result, we’ll be offering a more simple experience. Our attractions will be scaled back (and ticket fee reduced accordingly) with many of our usual activities not available — but we hope you’ll visit for a fun time with your family, enjoying the fresh air of the farm!
We had previously planned an exciting maze theme and design to celebrate Plymouth 400 – the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower Voyage and founding of Plymouth Colony. However, like so many others have had to do, we are adjusting our plans to help keep you and your family safe. While we’re disappointed to not be able to offer the original maze and all of our normal activities, we’re glad to be able to offer families an opportunity to get outdoors and enjoy some time together at the farm.
This year when you visit the farm, we’ll have a 1/4-acre Kiddie Corn Maze with Spookley the Square Pumpkin story book trail, a 2-1/2-acre area featuring a “Walk through the Stalks” one-way cornfield trail surrounding a large field of sunflowers, plus pre-picked sunflowers, pumpkins, and more available for purchase at the Farm Stand (while supplies last).
We will be evaluating our processes on an ongoing basis and may need to also make adjustments based on changes with COVID and related regulations. Please check our Facebook page for the most current information. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this challenging time!
Cost: $5/person (Children 2 year and under are FREE) Dates: September 5-7, 2020 (10AM-5PM)

C&C Reading Farm is pleased to welcome Spookley the Square Pumpkin™ back to our farm again this year!
C&C Reading Farm is partnering with Spookley the Square Pumpkin, the Official Spokes-Pumpkin for National Bullying Prevention Month, to raise awareness for bullying prevention. We’ll feature Spookley’s Storybook Trail in our mini corn maze during our fall season! Spookley’s story will help visitors, young and old, understand the importance of being tolerant and kind. When you visit our farm, you’ll also have the opportunity to pose for photos with a giant, inflatable Spookley and purchase the Spookley book or plush toy at our farm stand.
Spookley was first introduced to millions of children in the book The Legend of Spookley the Square Pumpkin, in which he is shunned by all of the round pumpkins until a mighty storm threatens to destroy the entire pumpkin patch and only Spookley, with his unique shape, can save the day. This fall, Spookley is returning as the Official Spokes-Pumpkin for PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center, which sponsors National Bullying Prevention Month activities. “The culture of bullying won’t end until people across the country take action and show children and teens that they care,” says Julie Hertzog, director of PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center, which is a division of PACER Center, a national organization. “We love the way Spookley touches the heart and the mind with his message of tolerance and acceptance.”
C&C Reading Farm is one of many family farms across North America that is embracing Spookley and his story. “Spookley is an adorable character with a wonderful message,” says Farmer Pete and Miss Lynn, Farmer/Manager. “We are delighted to share Spookley with our visitors to raise awareness for National Bullying Prevention.”
Spookley the Square Pumpkin is a beloved children’s character created by author and lyricist Joe Troiano. For more information about Spookley and his friends from Holiday Hill Farm, please visit www.holidayhillfarm.com.
