Adventures at The Pumpkin Patch
You know it’s going to be an interesting day when your honey thinks going to the Pumpkin Patch is a trip to the local super market to pick-up a few pumpkins. Yes, I gave him the side eye, but I truly do believe he was joking. I mean, YOU WERE JOKING….. right?!?!?!?
So, we jumped in the car and headed to Alstede Farms which is about 1 hour outside of NYC. Alstede Farms was founded in 1982 and cultivates over 600 acres of land in Chester using sustainable and certified organic farming methods. Apples, Peaches, strawberries, raspberries, currants, gooseberries, pumpkins, many specialty vegetables, corn and tomatoes are sold at their Route 513 retail market daily. The farm has over 13,000 square feet of greenhouses. Pretty darn cool!
We of course went for Family Fall Fun Day where we got to pick our own pumpkins and enjoy many of the activities listed below. This is a perfect day trip for the family to enjoy.
