Sure, you can buy a pumpkin from the store, but why not go directly to the source and turn it into a fun fall experience? Visit the farms where pumpkins are grown, meet the farmers and, in some cases, pick the pumpkins right off the vine yourself!
Delaware County has great places to visit for picking up the perfect pumpkin!
