Aloun Farms Pumpkin Patch

Pumpkin patches in Hawaii are so different than the ones that I am used to! First of all, they are not open to the public until the last two weekends before Halloween. The rest of the month, they only allow school groups and other educational groups to visit and get a quick lesson about farming/vegetables. The good thing is that the playgroup that we sometimes go to visits every year, so we get to go earlier than the rest of the public.
The "tour" consists of a short talk about different vegetables and farming, a tractor driven hay ride, and walking out to the field and "picking" your own pumpkin. Not exactly high speed, but during the hay ride Austin said, "This is awesome, Mommy!"
So, here are the pictures!
