A Trip to Schramm’s Pumpkin Farm
We recently made a trip to one of the pumpkin farms just outside of Pittsburgh. Fall Fest at Schramm’s Pumpkin Farm is always something to look forward to around Halloween. It’s only about an hour away from Pittsburgh and definitely worth the trip – plus the fresh air is much needed break away from the Burgh’s air pollution problem.
The farm was packed with families and couples, and of course the first people we were greeted by was a group of Steelers fans. It would have been brilliant if they threw a Troy Polamalu wig on one of them.
Schramm’s Farm has two (actually three) corn-stalk mazes. One is for toddlers to run around in. Another is a medium size one that takes about 2 minutes to go through (this one is free). There is also a giant corn-stalk maze that is about 10′ tall and costs $5. There was a tent to the left with some kids collecting the entrance fees. Lot’s of fun, but if you like mazes, we suggest checking into this one.
The farm market had a great selection of apples and other fresh produce. There was a bakery to the left – which also sold candles. Looks like the kid in the picture above made a stop at the popcorn machine to the right of the store. By the way, this is a great place to grab a gallon of apple cider.
