Customize Your Pumpkin! 

Since 2001, Personalized Pumpkins Scarred to order have been a favorite of local businesses. Advertising can be done on almost any Pumpkin and the prices are reasonable. Celebrate a Birthday, Wedding, Anniversary or any other occasion with this unique idea.

Chesebrough Farm will place your message on a young pumpkin or squash during the growing season. Due to Mother Nature, there is No Guarantee that the artwork will survive.

All Scarred orders must be in by August first of the current growing cycle. Your order will be ready for pickup no earlier than October first.

No alterations can be made once the process has started.

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.
