The days are getting cooler, the leaves are turning golden, and there is a sure sense of Fall in our Midwestern neck of the woods. In Racine County, there's no better way to celebrate harvest time with some seasonal sips and snacks. Here are some of our local favorites that share a little bit of our farm charm:

Pumpkin Kringle from O&H Danish Bakery
This distinctive oval-shaped treat has been a Racine County tradition since Danish immigrants brought it to Wisconsin in the mid-19th century. An authentic Danish Kringle is 32 layers of flaky, buttery dough filled with a variety of fruits and nuts and baked until golden brown. A sweet tribute to the autumn harvest, this Kringle offers comfort and the familiar flavor of homemade pumpkin pie. The perfect mix of pumpkin and caramel, wrapped in flaky pastry layers and drizzled with smooth caramel icing for an unforgettable seasonal favorite. You can pick up this pumpkin delight at any of the O&H Danish Bakeries or order online.
Apple Cider Donuts from Swan's Pumpkin Farm
Get them while they're hot and in season! A fall favorite in the Midwest, apple cider donuts are a favorite no matter what time of day it is. The best way to enjoy these doughy halos is walking through the pumpkin patches, taking a hayride, or making your way through the corn maze at Swan's Pumpkin Farm. Click here to learn more.
