A ‘How To’ Guide to Picking Your Own Pumpkin at Lapacek’s Orchard

001I want to start this post out by saying that I’m not trying to be condescending with this post…just trying to make things easier on you. We tend to get crazy busy on the weekend and I am hoping this will clarify a few things for everyone before their visit. We do our best to make your experience fun and fabulous so we’ve developed a pumpkin picking/weighing/paying process to make everyone’s life easier. It’s fairly self explanatory but I thought it would be fun to create a picture ‘how to’ for you before you head out to the orchard. If you have questions, please do not be afraid to ask…we’re more than happy to help.

002 Step 1: Head up to ‘the Patch’ to find the perfect pumpkin…003 (make sure it doesn’t have a child’s name on it before you choose that one…those are our cousins’ pumpkins…)004 or Step 1: Chose a pre-picked pumpkin from the display around the farm.005 Step 2: Haul your pumpkin to the scale (located just to the left of the entrance to the apple shop). Feel free to use one of the wagons about the orchard or even bring your own. 006 Step 3: Put your pumpkin on the scale to weigh it. 007 Step 4: See what it weighs.008 Step 5: Look at the Pumpkin Slip next to the scale and determine which price category your pumpkin is in.

Step 6: Mark the box that matches your pumpkin. You can continue to do this for all the pumpkins you choose.009

Step 7: Put the pumpkins in your vehicle and just bring the slip of paper to us at the registry. We trust you…we don’t need to see your pumpkin…unless you’re really excited about your choice and then of course I would love to see it.

Hope you have fun picking pumpkins at the orchard!

Also, lots of winter squash is starting to role in! Don’t wait too long to get your favorites an stock up for the upcoming year!
