One of the more popular places to go to pick pumpkins and take the family is Moon Farm Pumpkin Patch. They have been around for about fifty years so they are well known in the community. If you haven't been there you are really in for a nice treat. They have a petting zoo, let the kids see the animals and get up close to them.

If you buy a ticket it's $7 per person and kids under 4 are free your ticket includes the petting zoo, corn maze, straw maze, creepy clown house, haunted castle, hayrides and more. If you find a pumkin you like they are priced by size. Moon Farm is open now through Oct. 31. Hours: 10 a.m.-7 p.m. daily. P
