Picking Apples And Pumpkins - Fun Fall Books for Kids

Fall has officially gotten underway and if you have not already visited an orchard or pumpkin patch this year, you still have time.

Be sure to check websites or make a phone call before heading out. They can give you more details on each one for directions, current crop availability, tips for enjoying your time, and even setting up a group field trip to their location. Many of them offer various learning opportunities as well as samples of their products for reasonable rates.

Fall is one of the best times to enjoy living in this area, so don’t miss these opportunities. Before we know it we will be buried in snow. . . Make some memories to keep you warm. :)
