Customize Your Pumpkin! 

Customize your pumpkin or squash with a technique called "scarring".   We create them while they are still on the vine!  As the scar heals it leaves the message on the outside of the skin. Amazing!   Be sure to look at the sample.  By harvest time, your own personalized vegetable is ready for display. 

Scarred to order and grown locally, this original advertising idea has been featured at local businesses since 2001. Advertise a business, winery, celebrate a birthday, anniversary, a loved one, wedding, etc. Orders for your Personalized Pumpkins will be taken up until August 1st.   

To Order

For only $5 we'll "scar" your message on a young pumpkin or squash during the growing season. Occasionally a pumpkin will "breakdown" during the growth period. Mother Nature makes no guarantees.  Application cut off date is August 1st of the current growing season. Your pumpkin will be ready for pickup no sooner than the first of October. Prices range from $10-$50+.  Orders may be 3 lines with 15 characters maximum each line. Business cards or ideas are welcome.

We put together a down home cookbook of hearty and healthy ways to make delicious dishes using pumpkins and squash.  You'll find cooking tips and tricks, nutritional information, a short history of the pumpkin and much, much more.

Over 100 pages of recipes and tips including several award winning recipes.

Family Fun for All

This October bring your family to Chesebrough Farm and enjoy over 30 scarecrow "characters" and a colorful variety of pumpkins, squash and gourds in our "Pumpkin Patch.  Load your kids and your favorite pumpkin in our wagons and tour the farm.

We'll see you soon!

School Tours

Chesebrough Farms offers educational guided tours of a working farm, exposure to livestock, and an individual small pumpkin for each student.


We explain the life cycles of pumpkin and corn from seed to maturity.  Our working farm features livestock that you can photograph.


We conduct our tours through a century old barn, explaining the important roles of your local ranchers and farmers.  We encourage you to take photos of the farm and livestock.  A snack area is provided as well as areas for group photos.


School Tours are scheduled events Monday through Friday from 9:00am to 11:00am throughout the month of October.  Tours must be reserved at 2 least weeks in advance.  Please call to confirm availability of tour dates.  Tour dates are on a first come, first served basis only.


The cost of the tour is $3.50 per student.


We wish to give a thorough education in the farm life, so we ask that there are no more than two classes per time slot to prevent over crowding.  Parental participation is encouraged and class supervision is required at all times.

Dates available are Monday through Friday, 9:00am to 11:00am during the month of October. Book early as the days will fill up fast.
