    This is what Fall is all about in Virginia. Out in the orchards, pumpkin patches and the corn field mazes! Doris Drumheller, of Drumheller’s Orchard, knows how to have a day of fun for kids, many who have never been on the farm. Friday she had youngsters from all over the area coming by to pick their very own pumpkins and apples, along with a tour of their orchard operation. If you haven’t been out there, make it a point to go!
