October is the month of hayrides, pumpkin picking and trick or treating on Halloween! Read about the History and Origin of Halloween, Safety Tips, Recipes (you don’t want to miss the Frozen Hand recipe), and more, all on this site. http://www.halloween-website.com/

There are still plenty of apples to be picked and it’s a wonderful activity to gather with your friends/family to go to one of the local orchards to pick your own apples. To find the orchards for your area, visit http://www.mda.state.md.us/md_products/agritourism_sites-farms//fall_farm_activities.php

Our three clusters can find orchards in their area by scrolling down to the Anne Arundel, Baltimore, and Howard County listings. A few quick suggestions are www.butlersorchard.com (Germantown), www.baughers.com (Westminster) and www.webersfarm.com (Baltimore).
