HISTORY: The Great Pumpkin Farm has been growing since 1996. The farm started out with hosting the World Pumpkin Weigh-Off at which time it made the Guinness Book of World Records with the 1st 1,000lb pumpkin. Since that time we have added several events including the New York State Official BBQ Cookoff “OINKtoberfest”. The BBQ has grown from 10 competing teams to over 90 teams that come from all over the US and Canada. This year we will continue with annual Trebuchet competition that includes area high school technology departments to compete by building life size catapults and shoot for cash prizes and awards. We are also continuing with the Pumpkin Farm Olympics on Columbus Day weekend which include 3 days of events for all ages along with the Annual Pumpkin Drop on Columbus Day. Other events that we host are: The World Pumpkin Pie Eating Competition, Costume Contests and more! Every year we strive to add and change to provide the community with a fun wholesome place to celebrate the fall. All this is possible with the help from our sponsors that provide us with additional support to promote this festival.
