#ExploreDelta Barns and Farms
As we say goodbye to fresh summer produce, the fall harvest reminds us that it ain’t over yet! Fall at the farm brings an abundance of rich colorful vegetables, from hardy greens and radishes to root vegetables, and of course, the spotlight-stealing pumpkin.
Delighting children and décor enthusiasts, the pursuit of the perfect pumpkin is an enjoyable one with local farms offering u-pick and gourd hoarding fields and farm stands. A day in the pumpkin patch is not only a fun adventure for the entire family, it’s a fantastic way to support local farmers, buy shop sustainably for vegetables, eggs, honey & jams, and connect with the charm of the season outdoors.
Know Before you Go:
- Even if there are sunny skies, be prepared for mud as you pick and sling pumpkins around the field!
- BYOB – bring your own bag, but note wagons are usually available to transfer heavier hauls.
- Don’t forget to shop the Farm Stands while hitting the patch!
