Southbrook Pumpkin Patch is a close to the city "farm". It's small and family owned. They host an annual community fun day, so Rich and I decided to check it out for the first time. They provided complimentary hotdogs and snacks as well as fresh corn on the grill. There was a free tractor ride around the farm, mini corn maze and of course, lots of pumpkins! Oh and chickens!! I love chickens.

There's just something about eating at a farm that makes a simple hot dog special

Cutie! Kids were feeding them corn and they loved it.
We ran off to the forested area, I'm a forest creature.
Balancing on fallen trees isn't as easy as I thought

More fungus goodness
Not blueberries and on the right are really poisonous (but pretty) berries, known as Actaea pachypoda ( or Doll's-eyes, White Baneberry)
Reminds me of Martha.. I think she'd approve

Good bye cute chickens! Over all the pumpkin patch/mini farm was fun.. and free!
