th There’s a pretty strong connection between October and pumpkins. We are already seeing them pop up on front porches, decks and beside front doors here at Rose Lake Estates. If you haven’t bought your pumpkin yet, there are many more colorful, historic and authentic places to buy them than your neighborhood grocery store.

Despite heavy late summer rains, pumpkins are in good supply in the Midwest this year! What is the typical price for pumpkins in October 2014?  The national average is around 50 cents per pound, or $5 for a basketball-sized pumpkin.

Where can you pick your own pumpkin? 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 42 years of “Pumpkin Harvest Festivals” this year. Stonycreek Farm is actually an 1860s era farm on 50 acres of rolling farmland and woods. The farm was named after Stony Creek, a native American creek and trade route and the site of an old gristmill.
