GRAND RAPIDS, Mich (WOOD) – We recently had the opportunity to go back to the Stanwood Produce Auction in Stanwood, MI to learn about pumpkins! They sell over 80,000 pumpkins in a week, all grown by Amish farmers. The pumpkins are taken across Michigan to sell to families to celebrate the fall season.
TIP: Look for the pumpkin with the greenest stem, it’ll last longer!
Although many Halloween celebrations will not happen this year due to COVID, getting pumpkins and carving/painting them as a family can still happen!
