The hot summer days have officially dwindled here on The Classic Coast. Needless to say, we find ourselves daydreaming of everything Autumn in the wake of their absence. These fall months harvest the perfect opportunity for some of our favorite cozy-weather activities: pumpkin & apple picking, hayrides & corn mazes, and more.

When you find your hands itching for some pick-your-own experiences, here's where you can head to.




When you're ready, we can't wait to welcome you back to The Classic Coast! In order for everyone to enjoy the beauty that is Newport and its surrounding coastal communities this season, local restaurants, shops and business are doing everything they can to ensure the safety of all. This includes wearing mandatory face coverings, following guidelines put in place by health and government officials, and implementing stringent cleaning practices.

All we ask when you land on these shores is that you play your part in keeping everyone safe. Please be kind, wear a mask, wash your hands and maintain six feet of social distancing from others.




The following guidelines and regulations apply to all local farms:

  • All farms are operating in accordance with the policies and sanitation guidelines provided by the State of Rhode Island and RI Department of Health.
  • Face coverings are required at all times.
  • Please maintain 6 feet of social distancing at all times.
  • Please pay with credit, debit or contactless payment if possible to minimize the use of cash and the spread of contaminants.
