Fall Pumpkins Are Here!
posted on October 2nd, 2017 by Leslie Thomas
If there’s one sign that Fall is here, it’s the humble pumpkin. What was once a crop just used for pies and jack-o-lanterns is now a symbol – and ingredient that has quite the cult following. Pumpkin Spice lattes, pumpkin pastas, pumpkin pastries, and of course, pumpkin beer…it’s all part of the pumpkin “worshiping” that starts in September and goes through Thanksgiving.
Our Fall pumpkins are here and they are as beautiful as ever. They’re brought down to us from Van Groningen & Sons, a farm located in Northern California. The farm was started in 1922 by Henry Van Groningen, who had immigrated from the Netherlands to America in 1910. Over the years the farming operation took different shapes and today, is ran by his children, nephews, and grandchildren.
From melons to corn to nuts, Van Groningen & Sons do it all. But when Fall comes, they are all about their “pamper’d pumpkins.” Boasting traditional carving pumpkins as well as exotic varieties, they take great pride in their selection – which is exactly why we sell them!
Come and scoop your pretty pumpkin today for your front door stoop or enjoy a variety of sizes, shapes, and colors for a beautiful Fall tablescape. If you’re subscribed to our emails, you can score a FREE pumpkin from October 4th through October 10th!
