Those looking for the fruit of fall can head out to the Wittenberg Pumpkin Patch northeast of Valley City this weekend. Shawn and Kim Wittenberg opened the patch on their farm 15 years ago. Visitors have the opportunity to pick out their very own pumpkins, squash, gords and Indian corn in the scenic area. Pumpkins are either $4 or $5, and the price of everything else varies.
Kim said she decided to open the patch after visiting Papa's Pumpkin Patch in Bismarck when her children were younger. She said hers is much smaller, but this has been her best year so far.
The Circle of Life preschoolers spend weekdays at the patch, and it's open for the public on the weekends.
The patch is open Friday from 4-7 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Sunday from 1-7 p.m. They are located 6.5 miles north of he peak exit (296) and just about 2 miles west.
For questions, call Kim at (701) 490-4126.
