Pumpkin picking and apple picking are both fun activities to do with your family this Fall and lucky for all of us, we have Strites' Orchard Farm Market & Bakery nearby. If you have never been there before, you are really missing out! For the month of October they are open from 8am to 7pm Monday through Friday and on Saturday from 8am to 5pm.
After parking the car, it's a very short walk to the pumpkin patch! We found 4 large rows of pumpkins going down the field and just headed down one of the middle rows. It was a tad muddy because it had rained earlier in the day, but really, it wasn't too bad at all.
We had a great time in the pumpkin patch and once we were done, we headed on over to Strites' Farmer's Market to buy some fresh apple cider, concord grapes, onions and a bushel full of gala apples. Yes, Fall baking is on my horizon for next week!
