Are you ready for fall? After a delayed wave of summer heat, we are finally feeling the coolness of fall. And with fall, come pumpkins… (and pumpkin spice everything!)

Americans love their pumpkins. According to the Indianapolis Star, almost half the population or 46% of us will buy one to carve, display, and/or eat.

At RoseLake Estates, we are seeing pumpkins pop up on front porches, decks and beside front doors. If you haven’t bought your pumpkin yet, this is a great season for them. But rather than head over to your nearest supermarket, why not buy your pumpkin from a farm stand, an outdoor marketplace, or, better yet, a pumpkin patch?

Pumpkins are in good supply in the Midwest this year! And they are a good buy, too. The national average is around 50 cents per pound, or $5 for a basketball-sized pumpkin. That price has held relatively steady for the past five years.

Where can you pick your own pumpkins?

One of the more popular local October pumpkin patch destinations is Stonycreek Farms. Located at 1366 State Road 38 East, in Noblesville (info@stoneycreekfarm.net), Stonycreek Farms is celebrating 45 years of “Pumpkin Harvest Festivals” this year. The farm was named after Stony Creek, a native American creek and trade route and the site of an old gristmill, on the property.

Where do you go for an authentic hayride – or go to get lost in an Indiana corn maze? How ‘bout taking the kids to a climbing wall, or simply make “Trick or treating” more fun? Find out what’s going on this month to celebrate Fall and Halloween in and around Pendleton, Noblesville, Fishers, Carmel, and Indianapolis by visiting:
