Pumpkin spice has made it's return. It's that time of the year. The weather's getting cooler, the Fall colors are out and pumpkin patches are opening for the Season.  Time to be thinking about which ones to visit and since there are plenty to choose from I did the work for you and gathered the Top 10 Pumpkin patches to visit this Fall.
