Here’s a post I did on the Yule Forest Pumpkin Patch. You can pick your pumpkins off the vine here, but call first to make sure they still have some on the vine. (sometimes pick your own pumpkin just means, choose from the array we have lying around, so if actually picking it off the vine is what you want, make sure before you go that the establishment you are visiting doesn’t just lay the pumpkins out.)
In addition to pumpkins, enjoy a jumping pillow, petting zoo, Halloween hayride, crazy maze, bee house, puppet show, and a science center. New this year is the chicken coop.
