Where to find and how to farm for pumpkins in Fallout 76

Updated: Aug 6, 2023


Dedicated to the Halloween Camp Builders. Keep doing amazing and creative things.


This guide was written with player skill level in mind. Some players are not combat ready to take on a Scorchbeast or Super Mutants which is why I have covered all regions on the map.

 

Pumpkins are used in the following recipes and camp building items:


As with all farming, it is recommended that you run:

  • Green Thumb perk card under perception

  • Good with Salt perk card under Luck or Refrigerated Backpack (available from Camp Adams vendor machines)


Pumpkin vines are a fixed spawn. This means that unless you have harvested them recently, they will always be there.


Keep an eye out for "Verdant Season". This unmarked event is a food buff farmers favourite and makes farming for more difficult ingredients a lot easier.


Verdant season adds a 33% chance for a double yield from any plant within the region that Verdant Season is active in. In layman terms, while this event is active, you have a 33% chance of getting an extra 2 ingredients from every plant that you harvest. This also stacks with the Green Thumb perk card under Perception.


The game doesn't always tell you when it is verdant season. Sometimes you will see a notification on the top left hand side of your screen saying It's a verdant season in (region name here)! Enjoy the abundance! or The verdant season has been extended in the (region name here) or The verdant season in (region name here) has ended. Other times you will just see that you are collecting four ingredients from a plant instead of two.



It is advised that you refresh your pick up history list before going on a pumpkin run.


The easiest way to refresh your pick up history list is to pay a visit to the book house in Summersville. Pick up every single burnt book and text book on all three floors, plus the piles of books on the back table.


You only need to pick up 250 books/items to refresh your pick up history list. There should be a total of 289 books in the book house, but if you pick up everything not bolted down, on all three floors, then you don't need to worry too much if you miss a few burnt books.


There are other ways and places to collect 250 items but the book house is the easiest way because you don't need to keep track of how many items you have picked up.

Pumpkin Pie spawn locations


For the more casual players, why make pumpkin pie when you can just eat the pre-made ones.


There are 19 external spawn locations for pumpkin pie with an additional 8 internal spawn locations.


External - No load screen to enter

Internal - Load screen needed to enter


Pumpkin Pies rely on player cell activation to spawn. This means that there is a higher chance for the pies to spawn, if there are a lot of players running through and around the area (cell). Public servers are ideal.

Hi, I'm Kat or Duchess

I'm an Australian data miner who writes farming, event, and food buff guides for Fallout 76 and Starfield.

I believe that all knowledge and information should be free, which is why my guides will never be locked behind a paywall. However, running a website and photo and video editing software does not come cheaply.

​​

So, If you found my guides helpful, please consider buying me a ko-fi (coffee) using the link below.

​​

All monies go towards the tools for writing my guides and maybe for an actual cup of coffee or 3 ;)

Alternatively, share my guides with your fellow vault and space dwellers and help them to survive the spaceland.
