    A visitor writes on October 29, 2011: "Hello. We've been taking our children to Sweetfields Farm for 3 years in a row. We all love it. There's a ton of fun activities and, each year, they seem to get better than the last such as a HUGE cornstalk maze, live storytellers and a big tree house. We despise the "side of the road pumpkin patch" - that's no way to fully experience the fun of a farm AND picking out a pumpkin. Speaking of which, a large pumpkin at Sweetfields Farm is on average $10 ... not $40 like some of these faux pumpkin stands.!"
