Autumn is here and what better way to celebrate than visiting a pumpkin patch ahead of Halloween on October 31?.

Pumpkin picking could easily be made into a daylong venture as many of these pumpkin patches offer additional activities, such as hayrides, corn mazes, delicious food and picturesque views for the Gram.The adventure of picking a pumpkin is half the fun.
