Anyone who's ever driven along Interstate 90 has seen the fields of mums that grace the sides. This small, family owned mum farm has been around since I can remember and quickly became a Halloween tradition at our house.
Each year we trek out to North East to visit Paschke's Mum Farm. With all intentions of picking out one or two of our favorite colored mum plants to do our fall and Halloween decorating with we usually end up each picking out our favorite. Some years we will plant them in the back yard or along the front, while other years we simply keep them in their pots to line our front steps.
Creating a festive fall front you can pick up pots of mums in so many fun colors that you'll have trouble deciding.
When the kids were little their favorite part of the visit was being able to go out into the fields and pick their own fresh bouquet. For just a few dollars each they could go out and clip as many mums as their little hands could hold. Proudly displaying them on our kitchen table or on the mantle, each Halloween our house kept the festive atmosphere with beautiful flowers included!
Don't miss out on making this a family tradition of your own. Stop out at Paschke's Mum Farm and pick out a plant or two. Visit their fruit stand and pick up some wonderful fresh fruits, apples, pumpkins, fall and winter squashes and even some special treats from their bakery.
