It's almost time to pick pumpkins! Shelby County is lucky to have two wonderful farms that have pumpkin patches!

Gallrein Farms

They will be open from 10 am to 6 pm on that day, and a portion of the proceeds from opening day will go to support local charities! They will continue to have fun activities every weekend until October 31st.

Mulberry Orchard

Mulberry Orchard has FREE hayrides to the pumpkin patch on the weekends. They also offer a FREE corn maze and playground (super slide, swings, tires, tunnels, and more) when opened! While you're there you can pick up some apples (many varieties to pick from), apple cider, fresh fruits/veggies, local products, yummy desserts, and even enjoy a meal!
