A PYO Plethora of Macs and Jacks

Rural Intelligence FoodFall is teaming with brilliant golds, reds, and oranges this year. And I’m not just talking about the foliage. The beautiful bounty of the season is busting at the seams of the Rural Intelligence region. Apples and pumpkins, the sentinels of autumn, are ripe and ready for the picking. Take out your apple pie recipes, sharpen your carving tools, and be sure to get out in that crisp New England air and pick the perfect peck (and the perfect pumpkin). While you’re at it, enjoy a hayride, some warm cider donuts, or maybe a jaunt through a haunted corn maze. No matter how you peel it or carve it, autumn is here, and her harvest is ready.
