Big ones, little ones, white ones, orange ones…nothing says autumn like a pumpkin!

We have thousands of pumpkins to choose from, in all shapes, sizes, and colors. Whether you’re looking for a small, bright pumpkin to liven up a mantelpiece or a large one to turn into a “mumkin,” we have the pumpkins for you.

Looking for a fun family activity? Get crafty with pumpkins by carving a spooky jack-o-lantern or painting a seasonal pattern (or, show your team pride with this decoration!). For more pumpkin craft ideas, visit Pinterest.

Want to pick ‘em right from the field? Visit our sister farm, Chiles Peach Orchard in Crozet for pick-your-own pumpkins!

We’re always committed to being “local.”

Most of the jack-o-lantern pumpkins are grown by our local partners out of Nelson County, and we grow all of the gourds and specialty pumpkins over at Chiles Peach Orchard.

Want more local produce and merchandise? Browse our Country Store on the mountain or online! (Don’t forget to pick up some of your favorite fresh cider donuts!)
