Nice drive up the hill but you can find pumpkins much more affordable. Only go here on weekends if you love lots of kids.

Great little place. It was fairly slow the day we were there. Had some fried apple pies with ice cream. Very yummy! Purchased 1/2 bushel of fugi apples they are delicious! We were too early but the fall festival looks like fun.
