Our Amazing Artists and Carvers

The 2016 Carving Awards have been announced!

Many thanks to all of our Artist-Carvers and to our enthusiastic pumpkin carving judges who were faced with the very difficult task of selecting just a handful of this year’s truly amazing pumpkins for recognition.  We have spent days at the Farm, looking at each and every pumpkin many times. We are blown away by the detail and workmanship of each and every artist’s design. Thank you, artists, for your talent and time. We look forward to seeing you again next year.


Here they are! The Artists and Carvers who, um, “Made the Cut,” so to speak, and transformed the giant pumpkins of the 2016 Amazing Pumpkin Carve into works of art and designed pumpkins for our first-ever online auction of one-of-a-kind art pumpkins for your home.
