Linvilla Orchard, a 300-acre farm in Media, Pa., has been the epicenter of autumn in the region for three generations. And during those decades, the farm has inspired many seasonal traditions. But Pumpkinland is likely the most beloved of all. Started in the early 1970s, Pumpkinland brings huge piles of the iconic squash to the farm; more than 100 tons of pumpkins are on display. There’s also music, a corn maze, hayrides, and apple cider doughnuts to get everyone into the spirit of the season. This vintage photo shows families sifting through the bumper crop for the perfect jack o’ lantern. This year’s Pumpkinland kicks off September 10.
