MERIDANVILLE, Ala. – Pumpkin Picking season is here and with that comes all of the fun fall activities. Tate Farms in Meridianville is open for business and ready for the 2021 pumpkin season.

Visiting Tate Farms is an annual tradition for many families. Executive Assistant, Lisa Stratton, said it’s the perfect opportunity to get outdoors and have fun during the pandemic.

“It feels like a fun, family, lets go and spend some time together, let’s eat a funnel cake experience,” exclaimed Stratton.

Stratton said the farm is following state guidelines, so masks are optional.
