    A visitor writes on September 25, 2008: "This feedback/review is based off of the trip I took in October 2007 with my boyfriend to Papa John's Farm in Anne Arundel County in Maryland. The PYO pumpkins were very small for the price ($7) and not big enough to do a decent jack-o-lantern. Most of the staff were teens who were goofing off a lot of the time and not very helpful. Papa John's did have a lot of great pre-picked pumpkins, with a lot of variation in sizes and varieties, which I would definitely recommend. Hay ride was a roundabout route to get to the pumpkin picking area, the route not being well laid-out and poorly decorated. I don't plan on going back there again for PYO, but I did awfully like their varieties in pre-picked pumpkins."

This is the first year that we are going to do Strawberries. They have their own canned goods and cider, hayrides, and fun activities for the kids in summer and autumn.  It's an easy ride outside of DC or from VA (and no, there are NO farms in DC to have any PYO). I love your site! thank you for your VERY valuable service! :) "
