Pumpkin-picking time in Butler County

Saturday, Nov. 2, 2013, 9:00 p.m.
 

Pennsylvania is one of the nation's top pumpkin-producing states, behind California, Illinois, Michigan, New York and Ohio. In 2012, Pennsylvania farmers planted 7,100 acres of pumpkins, worth about $19 million according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Figures for 2013 aren't yet available. Pumpkins are an attraction at Pajers Farm Market in Buffalo Township, which runs a fall festival every weekend in October and is open through the holiday season. Ambrose Farm Market in Winfield, which has been in business for about 50 years, closes for the 2013 season on Sunday. Steve Ambrose, who is semi-retired and runs the farm market with his son, Wes, said that “100 percent of what we sell, we grow.” Sweet corn is a seasonal favorite, but this year tomatoes rivaled corn for the top spot.
