Lucy and I made a quick stop at
The Pumpkin Barn–I mean how could I resist, two of my favorite things!
This beautiful property is located,
just a few blocks from the University of Minnesota, Mankato.
Katy & Dave Wortel–sell pumpkins, gourds & more.
We arrived just a few minutes before they closed for the evening.
What a perfect place to pick out a pumpkin–or lots of pumpkins!

What a great place! Do they do other crops throughout the year, or are they strictly pumpkins and kin?
Looks like they just did the Fall goodness!
What a beautiful barn. Such a lovely place to visit and purchase your pumpkins.
I think I could have moved right in!
I didn’t get a picture of the old brick farmhouse!
I love visiting places like that! Catching the deer, what a great shot. I enjoy watching the cows when our farmers give them the damaged pumpkins, they make sure to get every bite.
Can you believe this is right in the city! I love that the barn is being to taken care of.
It’s in the city? That’s amazing to have something like that in an urban area for everyone to appreciate.
Crazy I know–definition of an “urban farm” for sure!
Drats. We were just in Mankato yesterday. This looks like a fun place.
1411 Pohl Road, They are open 1-6 daily thru Oct.
I remember this property from when we lived in Mkto. A farm right in the city! Of coarse it has developed even more since we lived there.
Absolutely gorgeous! Makes me so excited for Fall!
I hope Fall returns and these “Winter” temps go away for a month or more!
Loving this post. Squashes and pumpkins aren’t such a big deal here in the UK. I think it’s mainly due to the weather not being so favourable – a little bit more sun would be useful to cure their skins.
Glad you enjoy. I hope I can grow a few more specialty squashes next year myself….always thinking about “next year”!
