Abouts Us:

PUMPKINLAND - How it All Began - It seems like we have been growing pumpkins forever.  When the children were growing up, Dave always enjoyed growing a few pumpkin plants in the garden, especially the very large variety.  In 1988, when the children, Sherry, Kelly, and Darren were still in high school and middle school, we had harvested a few pumpkins out of our garden and set up a corn shock with the pumpkins by the edge of the garden.  We had people stopping to ask if those pumpkins were for sale.  Our children came up with the idea that the next year they would grow and sell pumpkins, and they sold about 70 pumpkins off of our front step.

Over the next several years, we made the decision to try to intentionally grow this business, and went from selling produce off of a hayrack parked in front of the house, to selling out of the garage.  In those early days, we often used the honor system, leaving a little sign and a lot of trust.  What started out as our kid's project turned into a family project.  In 1996 we put up a new building, which we are currently using for our PUMPKINLAND business.
