For the past few weekends we’ve been talking about heading off into farm country and doing what every respectable family does this time of year and enjoy the fleeting warm temperatures and glorious colors of fall by going pumpkin picking. So with the weather positively glorious Sunday afternoon. Think 75 degrees and bright blue skies streaked with a few passing clouds. A 2 year old that refused to take a nap and a desire to check one of our October activities off our list. We decided to head out and take advantage of the beautiful fall day that had presented itself to us.
We hopped in the truck and drove about 30 minutes southwest to Long Valley, New Jersey and the home of Ort Farms. Of course our non-napping toddler dosed off promptly 5 minutes before arrival but upon hearing that there were monster trucks and pumpkins to be picked he perked up rather quickly.
Ort farms did not disappoint, with the warm weather, crowds of people enjoying the fall festivities and Nikolas excitement at riding in the back of a tractor and picking pumpkins from a patch, we were together and having a blast. Not to mention the views and hot apple cider topped off a lovely afternoon.
