Pumpkin patch fundraiser for Langford farm this weekend

Lohbrunner Community Farm Co-operative has roughly 400 pumpkins for Halloween

Halloween is quickly approaching and with it all of the joys of the season.

Much to the delight of the Lohbrunner Community Farm Co-operative, a recent frost revealed a robust pumpkin crop which will serve as the non-profit farm’s last community event of the year.
