October is Pumpkin Patch Season!

October is a great time to visit our local working farms before they bed down for the winter and nothing makes fall more festive than a visit to a local pumpkin patch. Many local farms offer a pumpkin patch plus other family activities such as corn mazes, hayrides, and animal barns. While you’re there, grab some other local harvest produce and take advantage of the all the fall photo opportunities with your family on the farm.
