Fick Farms

We got our pumpkins at Fick Farms located in Lapeer, MI. We had so much fun exploring the corn maze, pumpkin patch and flower garden.  We even went on a hayride that included a couple of grave yards.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our four pumpkins we decorated for Halloween came from Fick Farms pumpkin patch. Make sure you stop in and get yours!
