Pick Your Own Pumpkins
Pumpkin Picking Info + Tips
It is an amazing sight. Ten acres of farmland covered with orange. Typically over 100,000 pumpkins of every shape, color and size await. Children’s eyes go wide with wonder and excitement as they first glimpse the pumpkin patch.
How to Pick the Perfect Pumpkin:
Pumpkins don’t get picked, they get adopted. No matter how ugly, bumpy, green, blue, pink or lopsided, every pumpkin finds a home. Watching thousands of people choose pumpkins has been a fascinating study in human behavior. Each person goes about it differently. Some get off the wagon, see a pumpkin and that’s the one. Some search the patch for the biggest. Some search for the tallest. Some search for perfect shape. Some search for complimentary colors.
And not a single pumpkin picker is wrong. Pumpkins are like art; they are like us. Each is individual and is just perfect for the right person. Pumpkins get adopted, not picked.
