Pumpkins

We offer pumpkins for all of our fall decoration needs. They literally come in all shapes and sizes. From jack-be-little to dill’s Atlantic giant varieties, we have a pumpkin to fit your needs. We raise many mini, assorted jack-o-lantern, and giant pumpkins. You can choose a pumpkin from the rack or venture out into the patch and cut it off the vine by yourself. We also raise white, green, and buckskin pumpkins for your decoration needs.
