Mid September - October.
Atlantic Giants are the kings of the pumpkin
world. Competition is fierce, and each fall pumpkin
enthusiasts eagerly await the crowning of a new
giant pumpkin champion. The current record (from
2016) is 2,624.6 pounds!
At Hutchinson Farm we just don't have enough time
(we've got other crops too!) to grow extremely large
pumpkins, and to be honest, who really wants a 1,000
pound pumpkin! Ours are big enough, they've reached
the "impossible to lift" size.
Our giant pumpkins are on display at the farm when
the pumpkin patch is open, the first week of Autumn,
and are available for purchase!
Thanks to Barrett Mucci for getting us started!
