Where will you buy your pumpkins this fall?

We can think of no better place than a local farm offering fall produce and pumpkins you can pick yourself. When it comes to agritourism, U-pick farms are a great example.  And fall is one of the best times of year to visit a local farm.

You’ll get a chance to explore local examples of agritourism, fill your car with farm-fresh produce for autumn eating and decorating, and entertain your kids (or the kid in you!) You’ll have a blast and make a local farmer’s day, too!
