Pumpkin Pickers

A visit to a pumpkin patch is a must this time of year, whether you’re picking up decorations for your home, the delicious fillings of your favorite pie, or some seasonal squashes.

In need of all of the above, we headed slightly northwest to Lafayette, Colorado and Cottonwood Farms. Where there are pumpkins of all shapes, sizes and colors.

Along with sheep and ponies and goats…oh my!

All dutifully protected by Cole, the old soul.

Featuring those expansive landscapes you only get after stepping outside the city,

And plenty of props for playing around with.

All dressed up in its October finery, and displaying just a hint of spooky.

When you’re ready to really get lost in your surroundings, head into the corn maze. Winding and weaving your way around…

And eventually finding your way out. A sweet victory in and of itself.

I know this post has been a little picture heavy, but we have to include one more from the farm. Because, seriously, look at this sky! It doesn’t even look real! (But we promise it is).

Loaded up with pumpkins, and our stomachs grumbling, it was time to head out and track down some food. In Lafayette, that means only one place – Acreage, the farm to table restaurant affiliated with our favorite cider house.

Featuring more of those spectacular views:

Acreage is a place where one can taste many of Stem’s delicious and dry ciders,

Accompanied, of course, by carbs, including the best (sweet but not too sweet) apple cider donuts.

All in all, a shuckingly good time!
