Pumpkins

We offer pumpkins for all of your fall decoration or culinary needs. Whether you are searching for the best-looking Jack-o Lantern or the best tasting heirloom variety, we have a pumpkin to fit your needs. Choose a pumpkin from the rack or venture into the patch during October and cut it off the vine yourself. We also grow specialty pumpkins including white, blue, Cinderella, buckskin, and warty varieties.
