HILLSDALE, NJ (WCBS 880) – Even with the flooding some farms have had this year, many are ready for the upcoming pumpkin season.

The cash registers are still getting a workout inside the store at Demarest Farms in Hillsdale.

“Business is good,” said farm manager Jason Degise. “We are very happy and we are very weather based. The pumpkins are good that are being picked out.”

Degise is happy to see all the pumpkin picking customers, especially since last month’s storms wiped out a couple of their fields.

“For every farmer in New Jersey or in New York, the fields have been from a foot of water to 10 feet of water,” he said.

Degise says Demarest Farms got almost 40 inches of rain so far this year.

“But we are fortunate. Where out field sits, out in the orchards is high,” he said. “Our extra fields did get flooded but we have plenty of pumpkins we are getting from other areas.”
