The Annual CSA Family Pumpkin Pick

Our CSA customers are invited to the farm to pick their pumpkins from the pumpkin patch from 3-5 p.m. This year we'll have the traditional orange jack-o-lanterns plus some white pumpkins, pie pumpkins, and tiny white and orange ones.
We’ll do family photos for all of you again, with the pumpkins and autumn decor. Plus, we will peel garlic / separate cloves in preparation for fall planting, and the big kids can help!
Set to the Oktoberfest playlist on the loudspeaker, we’ll have lawn games, the usual petting zoo, and you're welcome to stay for beers and a bonfire afterward.
