One of my favorite memories as a kid is going to Eckert's to pick apples and peaches with my grandparents. It's basically a St. Louis landmark. Sadly, they are too old to make the trip anymore, but it's still one of my favorite things to do in the spring and fall. Even as an adult, I love the wagon ride out to the orchards.  Now you can go and pick your own pumpkin from the patch. Their only caveat is that you have to be able to carry it yourself.
