Fall is the season of apples, spices, and of course, pumpkins! These lovely orange gourds are a symbol of the season. We decorate and carve them, or turn them into pies and cookies.

The Best Local Pumpkin Patches
Autumn is one of the most beloved seasons for a reason. It’s when we trade sandals for boots, and t-shirts for sweaters. The scents of baked apples and pumpkin spice fill the air. And as the crisp autumn air floats across the Rogue Valley, it’s time to explore the local farms and find a pumpkin ripe for picking.
