The Family Farm on Avent Ferry wants to help make decorating for the fall season fun for your entire family.  We offer many varieties of carving and heirloom pumpkins in all colors, shapes and sizes.  We also sell hay bales, flint corn, gourds and cornstalks to make your front doorstep the best in the neighborhood. 

While at The Family Farm, enjoy visiting our farm animals, climbing hay bales and taking pictures on our old pickup truck and tractor.  There is a pretty good chance you will get to see our cows enjoying the pumpkins too!

How are your pumpkins priced?
Prices vary depending on the variety, size and weight.

How can I prolong the life of my pumpkins?
Gently clean your pumpkin by using on of these cleaning solutions: a bleach solution (1-part bleach to 10-parts water); water and dishsoap; water and vinegar (1-part vinegar to 3-parts water). Make sure to dry your pumpkin completely. Keeping pumpkins out of direct sunlight and heat is also very helpful.
