Erickson-Ranch-Great-Pumpkins-Credit-Barbara-L-Steinberg-2010---4.jpgIt's September. Labor Day has passed, along with the last "unofficial" day of summer and the long, warm days are waning. The nights are lightly chilled and the mornings are damp. The change is definitely upon us and the smell of autumn is in the air. In a land where sunshine and blue skies reign most of the year, autumn is one of California's most dramatic and colorful seasons.  Not just the landscape, but the wide array of fall crops make this a most special time to visit Fairfield's Suisun Valley.

Suisun Valley has a wonderful autumn season, coupled with all the fun and frolic of local pumpkin patches and Halloween merriment. For most visitors, October probably marks the start of the fall season.  And by October 1, Suisun Valley's season of harvest is in full swing. U-pick pumpkin patches, Indian corn, colorful fall gourds, crisp apples, and Fun Family Farm Days - harvest time is on sensory overload, visually and aromatically!
