Signs of Halloween are cropping up everywhere, and it’s time to start thinking about finding your perfect pumpkin. While local farm stands and even grocery stores typically have some pretty nice specimens, it can be a lot more fun to pick your own straight from the fields they were grown on. Plus, many of these pumpkin patches offer additional activities for families, like hayrides and corn mazes, so you can turn your hunt into a fun fall day excursion.
