There is food available if you didn’t pack a picnic. Even if you did, spring for the cider and donuts, and maybe a some kettle corn. In addition to the dining tables, there are places throughout the farm to relax while the kids are playing, including a gigantic chair!

Pick out your pumpkins

Pumpkins & gourds of all shapes and sizes are available for purchase near the entrance. If you’re feeling adventurous head down the hill and pick out your own from the pumpkin patch. Stokoe’s does provide hand-carts for you, but you can also take your pumpkin on board the tractor-pulled wagons which loop right into the pumpkin patch. A fantastic way to end the day!
