The Simple Farm to Host Pumpkin Patch on October 17

Since owners Lylah and Michael Ledner decided to close The Simple Farm -- which is also the couple's private residence -- to the public in August, there's been limited opportunity to see the cute urban farm and visit the Ledners' Nubian goats.

The good news is that later this month the Ledners will be opening The Simple Farm to the public for a morning of pumpkin picking and tours.
