Fright night is nearly here. No, not November 4th, the original fright night, Halloween, is almost upon us. Hopefully you have a safe and fun Halloween already planned for yourself and your family. If you haven’t picked up your pumpkin for carving yet, try to get one from a local farm or farmer’s market. Many local farms offer pumpkin patches, corn mazes, hay rides and other fun Halloween farm activities. And if you’re wondering what to do with ol’ jack after your Halloween fun is over, remember, pumpkins can make great compost material. October offers up the perfect time to enjoy the beautiful colors of fall foliage, the fun and silliness that goes along with Halloween, and the abundant sights and experiences offered down on the farm. The pumpkin patches, fresh cider, petting farms and corn mazes all provide communities the perfect opportunity to connect with their areas hard working farmers and experience the difference that comes from the local element.
