Au Pairs and Pumpkin Picking: An American Cultural Activity
With Halloween right around the corner, pumpkin picking would be a great American cultural activity to do with your host family or au pair. Pumpkins have been grown in the United States of America for over 5,000 years and are thought to have been served at the first Thanksgiving feast. Whether you choose to eat, paint, or carve your pumpkin into a jack-o-lantern, here are some farms not too far from us where you can go pumpkin picking:

Stony Hill Farms
The Tan family got into the fall spirit with their au pair, Mai, and took a trip to Stony Hill Farm in Chester, NJ, earlier in October. It was an adventure in the country as they went into the fields to pick their own pumpkins, apples, and eggplants. What a fun way to enjoy this time of year together and living in the Garden State!
