Packing the pumpkin patch


Crowds estimated in the hundreds came out to Barten Pumpkins west of New Prague on Saturday, Oct. 12. Joe Barten, who helps operate the family-owned pumpkin patch, said they had three to four times the usual amount of people after being featured on WCCO-TV's Best of Minnesota Thursday, Oct. 10. The family was prepared as they had 40 people helping out.
