The Pumpkin Ritual at Valley Star Farm

I can't believe pumpkin season got by without my annual post about our visit to Page County Grown member Valley Star Farm. 

Soon as farmers market season begins to taper off, the folks at Valley Star open their pumpkin patch - it's a fall highlight in the Valley, as far as I'm concerned.

Among the activities are a corn maze, some old fashioned games (duck races, corn hole - bean bag toss, etc.) and hay rides into the pumpkin patch.  Then of course, the pumpkins and other farm products, including honey, for sale, and the display of some goats and a young Holstein calf.

Moving on into the holiday season, one of this farm's main crops is Christmas trees, where you can go out and choose your own. 

Mary and I are still enjoying the honey and other treats we picked up at Valley Star.  Here's a link, by the way, to the "pumpkin tableau" Mary created last year.
