Scenes of New England
The pumpkin patch at Jane and Paul's Farm in Norfolk, MA -- See article below photograph
"Orange" you glad for pumpkin patches?
Fall time is famous for leaf peeping, apple picking and scenic drives, but the thrill of picking a pumpkin in the patch ranks right up there

Because Jane and Paul's Farm is tucked away in a part of rural southwest suburban Boston that isn't as well known for apple picking, the experience was that much better. It feels like you're arriving at a family's member house, not a tourist attraction. The indoor farm stand is small, but meaningful as only the highest quality vegetables and fruits make it to the displays. The adjoining home is modest and the farmland, while large, is not the size of some of those endless fields at farms charging outrageous prices. There's also a challenging corn maze (prepare for about 20 minutes here), an animal area with goats, chickens, bunnies, and a limited but high quality selection of flowers.
We love Jane and Paul's Farm. It is the simple, unassuming place we knew so well growing up before other New England apple orchards took the limelight by becoming "Hollywood."
