The Great Pumpkin Farm, 11199 Main St., has been named the fifth best pumpkin patch in America by The Daily Meal, a culinary website, thanks to the great variety of attractions it offers during its annual seven-week Fall Festival in September and October. It beat such notables as Roloff Farms outside Portland, Ore., and Linvilla Orchards in Media, Pa., near Philadelphia.
According to Daily Meal editor Abbey Crain, “The fun festival activities set this fall farm aside from the rest. From regular costume competitions, pig racing, pie-eating contests and even a zombie mud run, this farm has something fun for every member of the family.”
