Okay, looking for a farm where we can either pick our own organic pumpkins or get some organic pumpkins and pick some apples, or have a hayride, or a cup of cider, or what have you. We like to go with my family every year and we're spread from Holland, to Lansing, to Ann Arbor area, so anywhere within an hour, hour 1/2 from anywhere across that band would be fine. I'm having tough luck finding something on-line, so I thought I'd see if anyone just knew of a place I can get organic pumpkins at our farmer's market, but I'm looking for a family experience of some sort, doesn't have to be pick your own pumpkins. So long as they've got some Thanks!

Hi.

I joined CSA with an organic farm in Lenox Township. They had pumpkins, but I'm not sure how many they still have. The farm is RC Organics and here is their website: http://www.rcorganicfarms.com/.

You can also try Maple Creek Farm: http://www.maplecreekfarm.com/index.html.

ETA: These may be too far for you, now that I re-read your post.

For apples, we always have picked at Hanulcik Farms in Ionia. They are not organic, but they are a low-spray farm. They are not a "tourist-y" sort of place at all, though. They are really just go and pick the apples. Super nice people, and their prices are very good.

its not a farm, but whole foods in ann arbor has organic pumpkins, and they are big! i think they are $3.99 too, each, not per pound. and we have a ton of michigan apples.
