Find the Perfect Pumpkin in a Picture-Perfect Pumpkin Patch

When we beheld the Giant Pumpkin Patch at Red Apple Farm, my instant reaction was to look for Linus. If you recall the plot of It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown
, you'll know that I believed I'd stumbled upon the sincerest of all pumpkin patches.
Red Apple Farm has 8 acres planted with pumpkins, and unlike some farms where pumpkins are trucked in and scattered across a field in the fall, Red Apple Farm's healthy, orange specimens are still growing on the vine, so you can enjoy a true pumpkin harvesting experience. We even saw a pumpkin that had reached an estimated 300 pounds--and still growing!
