Long before the corn maize was even dreamed about, Hawes Farms has been growing pumpkins. For over 15 years, we have shipped these little round orange balls all over California from Redding to San Diego, from Eureka to San Luis Obispo! Our pumpkins have even been shipped to Hawaii.
We grow over 50 varieties of pumpkins and gourds, always searching for the best and most unique characteristics. Our new patch is 20 acres in size. And new this year: We’ve collected a few pumpkin carving templates for you to download and have fun with!
Simply put … Farmer Greg loves raising pumpkins! He raises big ones, small ones, tall ones, short ones, red ones, warty ones, thick stem ones, white ones, green ones … you name it, he grows it! Farmer Greg also grows many varieties of gourds and squash. You will have a GREAT time hunting for your favorite pumpkin!
We grow 50 plus varieties or pumpkins … in all different sizes and with unique characteristics!
Another favorite for families are our buckboard wagons. These little wagons will be a hit with your child. Your child sits up front on the buckboard seat, and you fill up the back with pumpkins. Great for the kids, a slight work out for the parents!!!
For an extra treat, watch for all the different items featuring Spookley, the square pumpkin. You can never tell where he might show up. It’s a wonderful way for kids to learn about the farm, through the eyes of an unlikely hero, Spookley, the square pumpkin. There will be story telling and all sorts of fun activities. So, come out to Hawes Farms and experience the fall season in the pumpkin patch and with Spookley, the square pumpkin. More Spookley info…
