Pumpkins, Squash, and Gourds…Oh My!

When you visit the fields at Summers Farm and the Country Market, you will see much more than your typical orange pumpkin. Summers Farm offers over 15 different varieties of pumpkins, squash, and gourds for your picking. You may be surprised to know that the butternut squash and blue hubbard squash (pictured left) can make the most flavorful pies. Their smaller size also makes it much more manageable in the kitchen.

Also hidden among the leaves in the pumpkin patch are some stunning decorative pumpkins for your stoop. With fun names like Long Island Cheese, Cinderella or Sunshine, these pumpkins provide amazing color to your fall decorations, plus they are fun to say!
