Pumpkins for Kids

Continuing a Tradition

Nick Venetucci started the tradition 65 years ago: He was driving a truckload of pumpkins to town, but gave them away to children before he took them to market.

Venetucci Farm honors Nick and Bambi each year by continuing their legacy of generosity with an annual pumpkin giveaway in October.

Important Information

We Are Growing Pumpkins in 2017

Scheduled school groups can come in October for kids to select a pumpkin. The farm will host education stationsĀ so students can learn about the wonders of farm life, from the microbes under their feet to the gentle giants in the barn.



Schedule a Visit

Check back here in late AugustĀ for school visit dates and registration information.


We limit our school visits to preschool, kindergarten, and 1st-grade classes.


Please contact our Education Coordinator, David Rudin, with any questions.
