We love to make an outing in the Fall to find a few perfect pumpkins to bring home for carving. With so many beautiful farms in Litchfield County it's not hard to find a patch for picking. Many come with extra entertainment like apple picking, hay rides and corn mazes. For more Halloween fun and ideas check out our CT Halloween and Fall Fun Guide. Be sure to sign up for our weekly newsletter so that you can keep up with all of the fun events happening across Connecticut.
