Hitting the back roads for Pumpkins

   Autumn …. one of my favorite seasons in New England. Love the changing of colors and the cooler evenings. Yesterday I found myself searching for some mums and pumpkins and headed out to Rochester only to find East over Farmstead closed and no site of pumpkins. I have great memories of taking my girls there every year to ride the hay wagon to the pumpkin patch to pick their favorite pumpkin. Then returning back from the patch to the farm to have cider and pet the horses.

I  come across some cyclists taking in the beauty of Rochester, a great place to bike!

I then headed over to Cervelli’s Farm. I was hoping to catch a photo of their  pumpkin patch but all the pumpkins had been picked and are available at the farm stand on Vaughan Hill Road. The farm stand had a variety of pumpkins, mums and of course fresh veggies.

My trek continued to get some fresh apples and a strawberry rhubarb pie for my dad so headed to Flying Cloud Orchards on Main street in Acushnet. Nothing like a crisp apple!

My trip finished with a local farmstead on Acushnet Road in Mattapoisett. Love supporting the local farmers!

Enjoying my sunflowers, apples, mum and pumpkins and I am sure my dad will enjoy his pie! Afterwards I felt lazy should have gone by bike! Next time….img_2957
