AUBURN, Mass. – Still need to grab some pumpkins before Halloween? The First Congregational Church in Auburn has plenty to choose from.
The church, at 128 Central St., which has been selling all sizes of pumpkins since the last day of September, just received a shipment of 750 pumpkins on Sunday.
“People should swing by and get any sized pumpkin they want,” said the Rev. Brian Grover. “It’s a good time to reach out to the community and for the community to come and see the beauty of our pumpkin patch.
“We’ve had many people take pictures with their kids and pumpkins,” he added.
The pumpkins were shipped in from across the country; they’re raised and harvested at the Navajo Indian Agricultural Farm in Farmington, N.M.
Then a percentage of the sales are sent back to the reservation’s schools and other programs, and the rest of the sales help support the First Congregational Church.
The pumpkin prices are set by the reservation. The pumpkin price goes up as the size goes up.
The pumpkin patch will be open through Oct. 31. It’s open Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
