Pumpkins and Decorations
We have 8 acres of pumpkins and over 30 varieties. There are large and small in several colors and they are smooth or bumpy. Some pumpkins are really squash and very edible. The large ones are stringy, but the smaller pie pumpkins are sweeter and meatier. White pumpkins can also make a lovely decoration for your fall wedding.
We also have some wonderful fall decorations including-
- Corn stalks-large or mini bundles
- Decorative corn-tied or individual ears
- Mini pumpkins-orange or white
- Gourds-large or small, dried
- Straw bales-regular or mini
- Broom Corn
- Fall Mums
Feel free to pick your own...find one or a wagon load, a great family experience.
We first grew the Porcelain Doll pumpkin in 2015. To purchase the seeds, we signed an agreement to send 25 cents for each pink pumpkin sold to the Pink Pumpkin Foundation for breast cancer research. Our "Paint the Patch Pink" activities raised additional funds for cancer research, but could not go directly to the Hormel Institute. They, however, applied for the grant and were awarded $15,000 in 2016 and again in 2017 and 2018.
The Pink Pumpkin Patch Foundation ws created in 2012 to aid in the fight against breast cancer. America's pumpkin growers have committed to giving a percentage of proceeds from every pink pumpkin sold this year to organizations involved in breast cancer research.
