Bye bye burley. Hello pumpkins.
For generations, Mike Stroub and Pat Hick’s 76-acre farm on Robinson Union Road has been filled with rows of tobacco.
But this year, the fields of burley have been traded for a very large pumpkin patch.
“It’s been an idea for 15 years,” Stroub said.
The idea, he said, is to create a farm haven, complete with pumpkins, animals, hayrides, walking trails and fun.
“We want them to just enjoy a day at the farm,” Hicks said.
