Family farm offering drive-up pumpkin picking

By  | 

The Holleran farm on Winchester Road has set up a "drive through" service for purchasing pumpkins. Monday through Friday a trailer will be set up on the road where customers can give a few dollars and take a pumpkin of their choice.

Bill Holleran, Holleran Farms, says, "It's an honor system...We have neighbors who watch the trailer, but people in the community are pretty honest and sometimes very generous."

While the family has tried to wholesale pumpkins in the past, they prefer direct customer sales and the interaction with their neighbors and friends.

The Hollenar family also prides themselves in breeding the most unusual varieties of pumpkins. They even have a blue and white pumpkin to accommodate UK fans.

The more unique pumpkins are sold on the weekends at the family farm from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sundays.
