These Pumpkin Patches are Squash Goals

By: Scott Davis | October 2, 2019

Part of the joy of living in Michigan is having four seasons and all of the activities that entails; going to the beach in the summer, ice skating in the winter, and heading to orchards in the fall. The sweetness of apple cider paired with a warm donut is enough to get us out to our favorite mill, but there might be yet another reason to go: pumpkins. Plenty of local orchards allow you to pick the perfect pumpkin for your family to enjoy during the autumn season. So get the family together and get ready for some fall fun at these local U-Pick pumpkin farms in the D.
