I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.”
-M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables
October is a time of year that marks the turning of leaves, cozy nights around a campfire, hiking, smores and all things pumpkin! Visiting a pumpkin patch in October is a tradition for many families. Unfortunately, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, several amazing pumpkin patches around the state have had to make the hard decision to take a break from hosting families this year.
