We were so bummed that Brown’s closed,” said Emily Root Sterling of Spencerport. “We needed to find someplace to fill the void.” F or the Sterling family, t hat void has been filled b y Stokoe Farms, a sev- e nth-generation farm teeming with pumpkins and unique autumn activities in Scottsville. “There is so much to do there,” Sterling said. “There’s a train ride, zip line for when the kids get older, an air pillow…” The Sterlings don’t even get their pumpkins there (grandma buys them elsewhere), but they go to enjoy the experi- e nce. “It’s like a family fun day,” Sterling said. “We get a lot out of it.” For the Dana family of Penfield, the focus is m ore on the pumpkins t han the festivities. Their farm of choice is the low- key family farm Woody Acres in Penfield. Woody Acres’ pumpkin patch started small in 1995 as a roadside stand, and while it has grown over the last 20 years it is still quaint and quieter than some of the larger Rochester area patches. Aplethora of pumpkins, which are all grown o n the farm, are pre- picked and laid out for customers to choose from alongside a free hay bale maze. “They have a little maze for toddlers and an old fashion seesaw that’s really neat,” said Stephanie Dana, about the farm’s big activity draws. “It is sweet and simple, which is why I like it.” Big or small, just like picking the perfect pumpkin, the beauty of picking t he best pumpkin patch is in the eye of the beholder. Thankfully, the Rochester area has many to choose from. Here’s a nice sampler of five diverse patches: Stokoe Farms Where: 656 South R oad, Scottsville.
