Here in America, it is a tradition in many families to buy Halloween pumpkins at a Pumpkin Patch. A pumpkin patch is a small, farm-themed outdoor attraction/pumpkin store. Many have petting zoos and corn mazes in addition to selling pumpkins and related produce. It's a lot more fun than shopping at a supermarket!

Farm animals to look at:

I apologize for the poor picture quality. I had to take these with my phone. 

Do other countries have anything like this?

    Traveling a lot, thinking a bit and then taking some reading, what a joyous lifestyle! When here is free time for free disposal, stringing together the fragmental memories into pieces of writing works, share them with like-minded, it's kind of another sort of  luxurious treatment.
