Friday, October 9, 2015: Many varieties of winter squash plus pie pumpkins, all kinds of apples, and a Pumpkin Patch perfect for photo taking!

While trees are coloring much slower than normal they are starting to look quite beautiful.  There is still a chance that fall color will be spectacular this year, just later than normal.  While the foliage nor the weather makes one fully realize we are well into the fall season, our great selection of colorful fall/winter apples, winter squash, pumpkins and fall decorations should.  Since the weather has been so mild we still are picking summer vegetables such as tomatoes, beans, peppers and even some sweet corn!  For more information on what we have available along with the specials we are currently running, scroll down below the photos…
