Hayrides in Westchester
We love all things fall! Kick off the season at a local farm to enjoy a day of pumpkin and apple picking. One of our favorite ways to soak in the views of the local farms (and get some adorable pictures) is with hayrides or trips around the farm on a wagon or tractor. Below, we’re sharing hayrides near Westchester as well as some spots in Rockland County, the Hudson Valley, and Connecticut.
