You can go to apple orchards to pick out the perfect apple for your pie and can find the perfect pumpkin to make your Jack O’ Lantern or to bake into a pumpkin treat.
Youngsters can climb hay bales or go through a corn maze to get into the fall spirit.
These local businesses have extended hours and activities for the fall.
