Midwest Living Review

In addition to produce, there is year-round family fun at this orchard.

Rows of pumpkins are only part of the draw at this family-owned orchard near Granville (17 miles south of Ottawa). The store also features mums and all sorts of produce as well as freshly baked pies and doughnuts (apple cider doughnuts are the specialty; pumpkin spice are available on fall weekends). Pumpkins with painted faces as happy and quirky as cartoon characters line shelves in the front. Bruce Boggio, the artist, says working with preschoolers, who found scary pumpkin faces too unsettling, inspires his work.A petting zoo, pony rides, corn mazes and crafts show add to the fun atmosphere.
