We can’t believe it either, but fall orchard and pumpkin picking is already here! Some of these places are open already for apple and pear picking, most of the pumpkin patches open mid- to late-September and have tons of fun family activities to enjoy with the kids. Not to mention great holiday card photo ops!
Check the locations before you go for opening dates and pumpkin patch activities.
