LOWELL, Mich. (WZZM) -- Pumpkin pie, pumpkin doughnuts, and pumpkin lattes -- it is that time of year when it seems like every sort of treat is available in pumpkin flavor.
But if all you really want is an actual pumpkin, we talked to the experts at Heidi's Farmstand about picking the perfect one.
Aaron Kaeb, one of the owners of Heidi's Farmstand, picks up two pumpkins and walks down a line of pumpkins he has for sale. Each one has a price tag, and if you want, you can take a stroll through the pumpkin patch to find your very own.
"People are buying pumpkins primarily for decoration," said Kaeb. "They buy them for pies, and I have been selling them for 'punkin chunkin.'"
"Punkin chunkin" is the art of launching a pumpkin with a cannon or catapult.
