October is my FAVORITE month and I am so so happy that it is apple and pumpkin picking time! I have already started on the apples and this weekend I hope to get going on the pumpkins. It might be a bit early to pick them and expect them to last until Halloween, but it’s the experience we want. I can replace pumpkin if necessary;)
If you are in the mood like me, here are some of the areas best “pick your own” orchards and farms!

Mazes (Saturdays & Sundays during Pumpkinland)
Linvilla Orchards features two special mazes during our Pumpkinland Harvest Festival! Your family will love finding your way through our unique straw bale maze, constructed from over 300 giant straw bales. Linvilla’s 3-acre cornfield maze is slightly more challenging for adventurous explorers! Both mazes are carefully designed and reinvented every season to test your sense of direction and puzzle solving ability. Our Straw Bale Maze can take 20 to 60 minutes to explore, our Corn Field Maze can take 30 to 70 minutes to decipher. Open on Saturdays and Sundays during our Pumpkinland Harvest Festival (from mid-September thru early November).
Ring Toss & Apple Sling (Saturdays & Sundays during Pumpkinland)
Linvilla Orchards Apple Sling has become a favorite activity for children and adults alike! Sling apples at targets set on a large field for a memorably good time! We use unsellable apples that get turned back into the earth creating rich fertile soil. Our Pumpkin Ring Toss challenges your dexterity and accuracy when you attempt to ring a pumpkin stem! You can win a prize if you ring the lucky pumpkin! Our Apple Sling and Pumpkin Ring Toss are located near our mazes and are open from 10am until 5pm on Saturdays and Sundays during our Pumpkinland Harvest Festival (from mid-September thru early November).
