Tweed farm diversifies into agrotourism

Tweed:  As many travellers coming north toward Tweed may have noticed, there are some new markers on Highway 37 directing folks to a new pumpkin patch on the farm of Stephen and Vicki Maines. Their farm is called Maines Harvest Farms and this is their first year growing pumpkins. They have about 400 acres and planted a one acre patch that produced over 1,000 pumpkins!
