Pumpkins, a Petting Zoo and Ice Cream

Take your pick of places that sell pumpkins.

But, do you want the quintessential New England Fall experience of picking your own?

Small and round or tall and skinny, maybe an imperfection or two, I love the thrill of pulling mine right out of the patch. 

At Burke Ridge Farms in Ellington, you can do just that! They're offering hay rides to their pumpkin patch starting on Saturday! 

Bring some quarters for the petting zoo that houses a donkey, goats, sheep, and a pig! They even have fish food for the pond! The last time we were there, my daughters and I spotted 5 frogs sunning themselves on a rock in the water!

Don't forget to bring cash, because they also sell ice cream. I always treat my girls and I to a cup before we go!
