Picking the Perfect Pumpkin

Pumpkin picking is a fall activity classic. Whether you pick the smallest or largest pumpkin, your family members or friends will have the best time. Make sure you ask if they have a hayride while you are there! You will be able to paint, carve, or simply leave your pumpkin alone. We suggest to decorate the exterior of your home with your new pumpkins.
