Pumpkin spice has become a staple spice for the fall season in the US.  Every September we start seeing pops of this flavor in drinks, baked goods and even ice cream!  Although the spice has only become increasingly popular in the last decade, it has been around for over 3,500 years! For more information on where the original pumpkin spice came from, check out this article from History.com.

If anyone knows the fall season, it’s Fair Oaks Farms!  We love this time of year for obvious reasons: cozy flannels, pumpkin carving contests, apple picking and most importantly, pumpkin spice lattes. Every year we are so excited about our fall traditions like CowtoberFest and all things pumpkin!

Now is the perfect time to skip the long lines at your local coffee shop and get into the fall spirit by making your very own PSL at home!
