Pumpkin Patch at Hollin Farms

It was rainy a couple of weekends ago but Fauquier County was having Farm Days so I took a look at their brochure. One of the participants was Hollin Farm near Delaplane, and I was intrigued to read that it was founded by developer Robert Davenport, the man who built the community where I grew up. He's not around anymore but his sons and their families run the farm so I decided to take a look.

Of course, it's easier to buy your pumpkins in the supermarket, but this is a outing that children will remember.  They hunt for the perfect pumpkins to take home.
