Picking The Perfect Pumpkin Patch

and the fall fun continues!

We’ve shown you where to get a good scare, now we’re letting you know some of our favorite spots for pumpkin picking!  Living in a bustling city like Philadelphia, it’s going to be difficult to find an orchard anywhere near City Hall.  While there are many local neighborhood spots that will be selling festive pumpkins, hay and other fall goods, to get the true experience you’ll have to head outside of the city.  Luckily for us, Philadelphia is surrounded by farms and orchards – many less than an hour away!  Check out the links below for 3 places to get all the pumpkins and apples you can dream of – plus tons of family friendly activities.
