Fall Food at Vala’s Pumpkin Patch

October 25th, 2008 · 69 Comments

My family lives life one October at a time – always working towards it, somehow surviving through it, and recovering after it. My parents own a pumpkin farm in Nebraska. For two years after college, and then on-and-off since, I worked as a food and beverage manager at Vala’s Pumpkin Patch, developing the 14 or so specialty food locations sprawled across the farm. Some people visit Vala’s to buy pumpkins, but I fly home in the fall mostly for the food.
