Posted on October 13, 2011 at 5:49:19 am by Jennifer H.
In search of the Great Pumpkin? You just may find it at one of Allen County’s You-Pick Pumpkin Patches! Head on over to Degrandchamp’s Pumpkin Patch, located at 3737 Dicke Road in Fort Wayne, for an assortment of you-pick pumpkins. Little ones will enjoy being able to pluck the perfect pumpkin right off the vine at this adorable patch! Pre-picked pumpkins and other seasonal produce are available, as well. (Grab a pumpkin for each person in your family and see who can carve the most creative Jack-o’-lantern!) Degrandchamp’s is open from 9 a.m. until 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sundays. For more information, call 260-436-4359. Or, plan a visit to Hilger Family Farm, located at 5534 Butt Road in Fort Wayne. You and your family can head right out to the fields and search for the plumpest pumpkins in the patch! Pre-picked pumpkins are also available. While you’re there, you can also enjoy hayrides, pony rides and a play area with mazes and swings. Fall decorations, mums and other food items are available for purchase, too. Hilger Family Farm is open Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m. beginning Sept. 24 and running through the end of October. For more information, look for “Hilger Family Farm” on Facebook or call 260-625-3467. These are just two of my favorite pumpkin patches - are there any others that you would recommend?
