The Epiphany Church of Walpole, Mass., will be holding its annual Pumpkin Patch through October 31, 2019, at 62 Front St., across from the Walpole Town Common. Hours of operation: Monday through Friday, 11:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays from 9:00 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Every year, up to 3,000 pumpkins arrive in a huge truck that will have traveled to Walpole from the Navajo Indian Reservation in Farmington, N.M.! Pumpkins saturating the lawns at this quaint, historic Walpole church and its rectory (only 18 miles from Boston) is not only an amazing New England autumn sight but also a sure-fire way to pick the perfect pumpkin.
The Pumpkin Patch also serves to help those in need. Three-fourths of the proceeds are returned to the Navajo Reservation to help the Native American reservation allocate much-needed funding for education, job training and basics for necessary everyday living. One-fourth of the earnings remain with the Epiphany Parish of Walpole for other outreach projects.
As you can tell by the photos, the pumpkin scene is a truly spectacular scene — and juxtaposed with the beautiful Walpole Town Common for further enhancement!
The pumpkin picking attraction has surely evolved into a rite of passage for the local fall season. If you’re looking for a pumpkin in any shape or size at budget-friendly prices, the Epiphany Church of Walpole Pumpkin Patch is certainly a wonderful fall pumpkin picking destination. Mums and cornstalks will be available at the Pumpkin Patch from Pioneer Farms of Walpole. A weekly raffle for a giant pumpkin also highlights this classic Walpole attraction.
The Epiphany Church of Walpole Pumpkin Patch is located at the corner of Front and West Sts. in downtown Walpole MA.
