Every year, Braune Farms Fresh Produce has a “you pick” pumpkin patch where visitors can cut their own pumpkin fresh from the vine. With that, they also have some great fall activities such as hayrides, a baby barnyard to visit, a corn pit, face painting, games, and so much more! Homemade goods and farm-fresh vegetables are also available.
