The Brandt Family-- James and Kathy, along with daughters Julia, Jayne and Jordan-- all take part in the family business. "What we really relish about the pumpkins is that everyone seems to be really happy in a pumpkin patch," says Kathy. They purposefully keep the price of their carvers low— only $3-- so as many local kids can experience the fun of the pumpkin patch. "We enjoy it and we love seeing people enjoy it as well," says Kathy, who organizes tours for preschools and a few elementary schools throughout the month. She teaches about the life-cycle of the pumpkin in addition to letting kids pick the perfect form for a jack-o'-lantern. The patch offers more than carvers, however, and the selection comes with names as fun as the shapes: squat Cinderella's are a deep orange and great for cooking; Speckled Swans are a green gourd that look like birds; Polar Bears and New Moons are big and white while Long Island Cheese, also good for cooking, looks like a block of cheese.
