That crisp feeling is in the air and it's time to visit your local pumpkin patch or apple orchard. Kane County has dozens of farms that sell diurect to the public and many that provide a way to spend a day in the country.

Check out the Pumplin Jack activity on our KCFB Ag in the Classroom page that lets kids try growing their own pumpkins for next year.
